Here is a scan of a 1987 Topps card. I have more from other years, but this one has a good shot of his face.

Martin set LSU’s all-time career receiving records before a 10-year NFL career, nine with New Orleans, highlighted by a Pro Bowl season in 1988. At LSU, was chosen as a member of the \"Modern Day Team of the Century\" in conjunction with the football program’s centennial in 1993. For the Tigers, Martin caught 152 passes for 2,625 yards (17.3 avg.) and 14 TDs despite playing running back as a freshman. He led the team in receiving in his last three seasons. In his junior year, he caught 52 passes for 1,064 yards and 5 TDs, earning Sporting News All-America honors and LSU’s Offensive MVP award. He twice made All-SEC. As a freshman, he ranked second in the nation on kickoff returns, including a 100-yarder against Kentucky. After going in the seventh round of the 1985 NFL Draft to the Saints, he started 11 games as a rookie. The 6-1, 207-pounder led New Orleans in receiving for seven straight years (1987-93) while earning a reputation as a clutch possession receiver. He caught 63 or more passes in each of those seven years. He caught at least one pass in 107 consecutive games (105 with New Orleans), a streak which entering the 1997 season ranked eighth all-time in NFL history. In 1988, Martin set club records for receptions (85) and yards (1,083) with 7 TDs. He broke the yardage record in 1989 with 1,090. Martin finished his Saints career as the club’s all-time leader in receptions (532) and yards (7,854) and averaged 14.8 yards per catch. He ranks second all-time behind Dalton Hilliard with 48 TDs and third all-time in scoring with 288 points, trailing Morten Andersen and Hilliard. He played in Kansas City in 1994 and finished his NFL career with 553 catches for 8,161 yards (14.8 avg.) and 49 TDs. He had 15 catches for 204 yards and a TD in five playoff games.
