Heller, Ron (2)

CARDS: Score 1990, Fleer 1990
ACQUIRED: TTM 2023, C/o Home
SENT: 2/3 RECEIVED: 2/13 (10 days)



Ron hopped over to the Omaha Nighthawks of the (original) UFL to coach there in 2012. He then spent some time again at the pro level as an assistant offensive line coach for the New York Jets from 2013-15.

I’m sure there have been a few people who have complained about the lack of Eagles in my database so I decided to knock out Heller for that reason, along with the fact I still had a set need from Fleer 1990, as well as the fact I hadn’t gotten his autograph since… 1995- little less ever TTM. I also think his Score 1990 card is a very underrated offensive lineman action card anyone would be proud of.

Had sorta given up on this one that was a shot in the dark, but was pleasantly surprised to see this one bounce back to me in a bit over 800 days.


Hunter, Kendall

Upper Deck College Legends 2011, #87

CARD: Upper Deck College Legends 2011
ACQUIRED: EBay, 2020


  • Kendall Hunter played college ball for the OSU Cowboys from 2007-10.
  • In both 2008 and 2010 he rushed for over 1,500 yards, and had over 20 catches.
  • He was named as a finalist for the Doak Walker Award in his senior season, and finished his career with 4,181 yards and 37 TDs on 708 carries.
  • Due primarily to his size, 5’7″, 199, Hunter wouldn’t be selected until the 3rd round of the 2011 draft by the San Fransisco 49ers.
  • During his time in the league from 2011-2015, Hunter saw action in 45 contests, starting 1 in his rookie year.
  • He had a career high 473 yards on 112 carries and 16 catches for 195 yards.
  • Used primarily as a 3rd down or as a change of pace back, Kendall ran for 1202 yards on 262 carries for the 9ers.
  • Was released after the 2014 season, when he spent the entire year on IR due to a knee injury.
  • Signed with the Saints in 2015, late in the year to spell injured Mark Ingram.
  • Briefly joined the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL in 2017, but retired soon thereafter.


Who knows how Kendall would’ve performed if he was shoved into a role with a team that used him as a primary back in a run n shoot or spread set up? He definitely had a set of wheels on him, and some great college number to prove it.
