Wishing Mike's family the best at this time; although I had not seen him in several years I always though about him especially during football season. All of us at the card shows will always remember Mike's passion for Penn State and collecting all of those players that played at some point in time at his alma mater. Have missed and will continue to miss all the talks that we had about college football, as well as life in general. Sorry for your loss. Chris
