NFL fan gets his card back from Warrick Dunn 21 years later

A New Jersey man who mailed NFL running back Warrick Dunn a trading card to sign finally received a response from the now-former player 21 years later.

Eric Emanuele said in a video posted to Twitter that he collected NFL trading cards when he was a child, and he would frequently mail cards to players with a request that the card be returned with an autograph.

“Thank you for your unwavering support of my football career. My apologies if this response has not reached you in a timely manner. It’s a great pleasure to autograph the enclosed memorabilia,” Dunn wrote.
