McEachern, Randy

CARD: University of Texas Upper Deck 2011
ACQUIRED: EBay, 2020


  • An all around accomplished athlete and track man, joined the Longhorns in 1974 as the heir apparent to Marty Akins, but didn’t see any action until 1977.

  • Rose from 4th on the depth chart to take over under center during the Red River Rivalry game, leading the Longhorns to an improbable win 13-6 over the Sooners.

  • Set numerous passing school records at the time, led the Longhorns to 2 bowl games, including a National Championship game in 1977, graduating with an 11-4 record.


  • Texas Longhorns Athletics Ring of Honor


An appropriate photo, as Randy was just as well known as the quarterback who handed off to Earl Campbell. I decided to focus on this set as I was running thin on things to do during the COVID crisis, so I picked this one up cheap off of EBay. Randy has a small baseball diamond named after him in Austin, near Austin High School.

Roesler, Roger

Card: UT Upper Deck 2011
Acquired: TTM 2019, C/o Home

Failure: TTM 2019, C/o Home


  • Roger played college ball at the University of Texas from 1996 to 1999 where he settled in at offensive guard.

  • A strong run blocker, he blocked up front for Priest Holmes and Ricky Williams while at UT.

  • He was named a 3rd team All-American in 1999 and a First Team All Big 12 lineman.

  • Roger went undrafted, and later signed a free agent contract with the Cincinnati Bengals, but was cut from the squad in 2000.


It took me a second try but I was able to track down Roger based off an old address that he had posted as part of his website. After the RTS came back, I was able to reverse engineer his address from there using a website address crawler.
