Autographed Tecmo Bowl carts

Recommended Posts

Recently got this signed Duane Bickett cart in the mail.  Bickett is one of my favorites on Tecmo.  2nd fastest bottom outside Linebacker after LT, and the Colts have really become my go to team over the years.  For my 1st Tecmo autograph, it's a good starting point.

The media relations guy for the Colts had me send him the cart, and then passed it along to Duane.  About a week and a half later I got the signed cart back in the mail.  Funny thing is, my wife was disappointed that Duane didn't include a note or anything.  I guess she wanted us to start up a bromance or something.....


 


I included a handwritten note, and had a page with some Tecmo screen shots of Duane on defense picking off a Kosar pass.  I included a little info about the game and why its popular still to this day.  I asked him to personalize the cart how he saw fit, so he included "#50 Colts" which was a nice touch.  


 


Just sent another cart out on Monday to the Redskins home office.  Doug Williams is working in player personnel for them now, so hopefully he will sign as well.  I included some Tecmo screen shots of him throwing to Sanders, Clark, and Didier, along with a short letter of congratulations on his return to the Skins and such.    


 


Other targets I'm looking at are Elway and Ozzie Newsome, since they still work for NFL organizations, and are easy to contact.    


If Williams comes through, I'll post a pic.

Doug Williams came through.  Signed it and included "Super Bowl 22 MVP".  Nice personalized touch.

I'll post more autographs as I get them.  I'll probably put together some sort of display in a shadow box or something when I get a few more.  There are engraved name plates on ebay for a lot of former players, which I'll probably add to each signed cart for the display.  My goal is to get 1 signed by a player from each of the 12 teams.

Stone cold Tecmo Bowl legend/killer and kick return specialist Dennis Gentry autograph came in the mail today.  He even asked if I could get him a Tecmo Bowl cartridge in the letter he included....


Ask and ye shall receive Mr Gentry!  I'll get one in the mail.  He probably assumes the game is super rare based on its age....i guess.

The flash makes it a little hard to read, and he personalized it with #29 Bears.

I also sent a cartridge out to the home of the one and only LT.....we'll see if he comes through.

On a side note, I'm friends with 49ers DT Michael Carter on facebook, and he blew off my autograph request via messaging there.  Time to bring out the heavy artillery and make a youtube video chronicling the greatness that is Michael Carter, and why he needs to come through with an autograph.

Next cart has arrived.  Seahawks LB Fredd Young.  He's basically the best LB in Tecmo Bowl this side of Lawrence Taylor...and maybe Carl Banks.


 


Personalized it with #50 Hawks/2 X all pro

Will be a great addition to go with a 1987 Seahawks poster of the week I already own

About 10 days ago I got the cart back from Mecklenberg.  5 out of 6 signed and returned for my tally so far.  Meck took a long time to return(about 19 months, and in the process postage rates went up at the 1st of the year....so he had to pony up 8 cents  But still a nice gesture to take it to the post office and add that to the postage I had already applied.

 

In the future, I will be adding an extra 25 cents or so to cover any deal like that.  Or perhaps the postal service employee made a mistake and didn't add enough to get it properly returned to me.
