14 if by Sportlots

Not 4. 14. As in two orders, one of 4, one of 10.
Starting with somewhat of an oddball. This is from 1994 Classic Pro Line, and is just a reproduction of the newspaper announcing the arrival of the Jacksonville Jaguars, alongside their original logo. I pulled the Panthers one from a repack, and just needed their expansion cousins. Because I was bored, I actually looked up the other articles references at the bottom.

"Slaying of two hunters may be related" - Turns out they were, but the case went cold until 1998. 

"Amtrak train smashes into small truck" - No luck here. This had to be local, as my searches mainly brought up references to the 1993 Big Bayou accident.

"Key Tide player may be out of SEC game" - Looks like that player was Jay Barker. I don't think this would count as Barker card to JBF.

I didn't check out the Teen Wrap.
As a part of my never ending quest to add football cards of professional wrestlers into my collection, here's an appearance of the ill-fated Droz from his Broncos days.
And my list of needs for 2015 GQ drops to 1 with these additions. 2 years later, the end is in sight, interestingly with card #350 being my 350th.
I do believe these complete the binder. Almost 28 years later.
And since I was 2 away from the 10 card price level, let's add two more stickers to my 2/14 binder with my 23rd and 24th Dave Dravecky - these from the 1990 Panini release.

And there you have a Baker's Dozen +1 of sportlots mail.
