What is The Card Album?
The Card Album is my personal collection showcase. I originally designed my first website, CardMagnet.info, from scratch in Microsoft FrontPage and used tables to organize things. The site was updated regularly 2009 to 2021. I’m proud to say that I had regular viewers from around the world, and my content was frequently in the top results on Google’s web and image results. The time came to put some new tools and ideas to use, and so TheCardAlbum.com was born.
About My Collection
I’ve collected a little bit of everything over the years. With over 500 players and coaches from the University of Miami Football program represented, I believe my Hurricanes card collection is the largest one in existence. Along with Canes Football, I also enjoy collecting local natives and sports teams of the Greater Johnstown, PA area. You’ll also find various other baseball cards, hockey cards, football cards, and non-sports cards from my collection pictured on this site.

Mark Rush saw action for the Gamblers during the early part of the 1984 season before being traded to the Gunslingers. Caught four passes for 45 yards with the Gamblers, and also saw action on special teams, returning three kickoffs for 58 yards. With the ’84 Gunslingers, Rush ran the ball 18 times for 34 yards and one touchdown, and caught five passes for 22 yards and one touchdown. First Gunslinger in team history to score two touchdowns in a game (vs. Washington, 5-20-84). Converted to tight end by the Gunslingers for the 1985 season.
