Cards That Never Were: Scott Stankavage 1985 Topps

Cards That Never Were is a recurring series in which I create virtual cards for players missed in various sets over the years. It is a concept I have borrowed from far too many to list, but I appreciate all of them.
Scott Stankavage starred at quarterback for the University of North Carolina before joining the New England Patriots for the 1984 season. He saw action in one game, going 4-18 on pass attempts with one interception. It appears he was on the Broncos in 1985, but didn't get into any games. No info is available for 1986, leading me to think he was unsigned. He next saw action in 1987 with the Miami Dolphins. In three games, he went 4-7 with one interception. Overall he was 8-25 for 66 yards with two interceptions, and no touchdowns.
With such limited action, it was hard to find any pictures of Stankavage, but I found one decent enough to make a 1985 "missing" card for him. I am still on the lookout for a picture of him with the Dolphins to give him a 1988 "career capper" card.
