My particular expertise is Dallas Cowboys history from 1960-1988 (the Landry era); I'm also a Cowboys book fanatic (I have almost 300 different Cowboys-related titles), and I also collect Cowboys football cards (but stopped in 93). But I am not an expert in the value of cards or collectibles – so please don't ask.
Before you ask: "So-and-so" almost certainly DID NOT PLAY for the Cowboys -- trust me! Before you ask me, ask the guy for proof!
Finally, I DO NOT ANSWER “PRIVATE” QUESTIONS! My work requires research, so the results must be made public.
I had a Cowboys webpage recognized around the Internet as the authoritative list of Cowboys links, and I have a Cowboys book collection second to none (approx. 300 titles). In addition to my book collection, I have every Cowboys media guide back to 1960, which makes researching questions much easier.

I've been a Cowboy fan all my life; I like answering questions and helping other fans.
I'd like to be recognized as an expert who was willing to help people and share information.
The reason the Cowboys wear white has nothing to do with a "jinx" on the blue jerseys. And the Cowboys did not name themselves "America's Team". That came from NFL Films in 1979.
The question I get most often is: did "so-and-so" ever play for the Cowboys? I can tell you already: the answer is (99 times out of 100): NO! If anybody claims that, ask them for proof. That goes for "former coaches" too -- if you haven't heard of the guy, he's probably faking it.

Good question for which there is no definitive answer. But in my opinion, the problem is that HOFer Ernie Stautner worked under HOFer Tom Landry. Landry basically invented the 4-3 and the Flex variation
"Value" or "worth" are very subjective things when it comes to collectibles. And I'm really not an expert on collectibles like this, but in my opinion, any collectible is worth whatever a willing

Yeah I wish there was an easier way. I'm not aware of any website that has a complete list of just Landry-era players. If you have a scanner that has OCR you may be able to scan the 1988 media guide
Alex: Unfortunately the old media guides are long out of print so eBay is your best bet. You can set up an eBay search for the 1978 and 1989 media guides. You can also google 1989 Dallas Cowboys
