Card: Sage 2016 (#67/250)
Acquired: 2016, Hobby Box Breaker

Derrick Alexander is a fireplug, standing at 6’2″ 270. Playing for the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes,  Alexander racked up 133 total tackles, 35.5 TFL, 19.5 sacks, and 5 forced fumbles. Derrick is a bit of an enigma to scouts. Teams couldn’t decide if he was more of a defensive end, defensive tackle, or coming off the edge as a tweener.  Derrick does bring with him versatility against the run or pass, and great hustle to the ball.

Myers, Isiah

Card: Sage 2015
Acquired: 2016, Gunderson Trade

Isiah Myers played for the Washington St Cougars from 2011 to 2014. His numbers grew for the most part every year climaxing in his senior campaign, when he was on the Bilitnikoff Watch List. There Isiah put up 78 receptions for 972 yards and 12 touchdowns. Both his receptions and touchdown numbers are top 3 single game records in school history.  His best game however came against Portland State in 2014, when Isiah hauled in 11 passes for 227 yards and 3 touchdowns, including a 55 yard grab.

Myers was not selected in the 2015 NFL Draft. His size (6’0″, 188) and average pro day may have worked against him. I was surprised to see that he didn’t apply his trade to the Arena leagues, however currently Isiah is putting his Sociology degree to good use in Florida.

How time flies… It’s been roughly 5 years since I got Dan Pastorini at the Houston Fan Fest in 2012. I traded away one of my cards to a fan who didn’t bring anything for him at the event and buoyed by Dan’s very interesting book, I decided to give him a through the mail shot. It’s amazing that these cards are 40+ years old now. Dan really didn’t have any action shots in the card family, primarily because the vast majority of his cards were released under the Topps label. Still his 1975 issue with something between a scowl and a glance is a pretty nice card. He lives in Houston, and makes frequent appearances at Houston Oiler themed events. In addition, Dan remains busy in racing and high speed motor events.

Celebrating the game, the players, the cards, and the autographs for over 25 years.
