I remember Bobby Hebert but I was too young to truly remember him playing here. I remember his seasons with the Falcons more than I remember him as a Saint, honestly.

I do remember Jim Everett and being a big fan of his. To this day I think he's incredibly underrated.

Anyway, for the rest of my childhood as a Saints fan, we had a joke QB after joke QB until finally we acquired Jeff Blake in Free Agency from the Bengals. I was so excited! And man, for the first half of that season, he totally lived up to my high expectations.

All I wanted for Christmas that year was a Jeff Blake jersey. Nothing else. Even after he went down to injury, my mom asked if I was sure that was what I wanted.... I was 100% sure.

And of course, Blake would never play another snap as a Saint again :ROFLMAO: But still... he brought excitement and hope for me as a Saints fan for the first time in my life.

I ended up getting a white Aaron Brooks jersey the next Christmas (a gold Ricky on my birthday before that as well), but for some reason over the years, the black PUMA Jeff Blake jersey has survived the hurricanes and floods over those two and other little Saints stuff I had from when I was a kid/teenager. It just sits in my closet honestly but here's a quick pic.

Found these at my mother in laws house. Pretty cool find i’d like to find the coins to go with them and frame it all.
I have the opposite problem...I have the coins, but need the tickets. If you are ever willing to sell these, please let me know. Who Dat!

I have a shirt from Christmas 1987 with Hebert, Morten and Dave Waymer on it. I still have my original cha ching shirt too. My favorite is the 1987 local comic book that chronicled the 1987 season as well. Original Saga of the Saints history book as well.

My heart. Which has been tattered and torn to shreds until the 2009 season whereupon it was repaired. But along with the 2011 playoff game these last two seasons' endings have frayed it considerably again.

My old school Saints helmet circa late 1970s.. this is a pic of it taken when i was a kid in the early 80s.. not sure where it is at the moment, but my dad’s friend who obtained it claimed it was one of Archie’s helmets, though i’m kinda doubtful that’s true.
