Name: Hardy Nickerson, aka "Hyena"
Team: Tampa Slay Buccaneers
Position: Linebacker
Value of card: Fleas
Key 1994 splat: Watched "The Lion King" 32 times in preparation for this shoot
Fun facts about Hardy "Hyena" Nickerson and real hyenas:
  • Hyenas are primarily nocturnal animals, but may leave their lairs in the early morning. Nickerson was also primarily nocturnal, though he rarely left his "lair," also known as his parents' basement.
  • Hyenas have a reputation for scavenging food that has been killed by other animals. Nickerson had a reputation for stealing his teammates' lunches from the fridge.
  • Some hyena traits are similar to those of dogs, while others are more cat-like. Nickerson definitely looks more like a puss in this photo.
  • Hyenas groom themselves often and have a cat-like way of licking their genitals. Nickerson rarely groomed himself, but did try repeatedly to accomplish the other thing.
  • Hyenas are known for their calls that sound like human laughter. Nickerson heard plenty of laughter from many humans after this card came out.

Two hours later: Oh my god. What is going on back there? It's, like, life. Look at it breathe! I mean, wait. What is he holding? Is that a baby? Why are his hands so fat? I bet his pants taste like a Creamsicle. Oh, that sounds good. His skin must be made of paper. God, that's frightening. Mmmm, the background makes me warm. Wait, 12? What does 12 mean? Geez, it just keeps going, doesn't it? I think I see myself in his helmet. Whoa.
