I have very eclectic collecting habits. Other than my Astros autograph collection (only 19 away from the all-time team!) most of my personal collection is so specific that I do not end up with a lot of competition.
The single exception to this is my Marwin Gonzalez collection. While I do not...
I have a new article up on Astros A to Z. I write articles to examine the careers and lives of Astros players. I tend to focus on the guys that we don't often think about. I would love feedback positive or negative!
Here is a link to the article. I have also put the entire article here. If...
This popped up on SCN, and since you have to be subscribed to read it, I wanted FCB's thoughts on this. I sent Topps a message about it, but doubt I'll get a response. Anyone with better connections there want to give it a shot?
For baseball cards, it would be very difficult to find out if...
I have been grappling with the reality that AstrosAtoZ.com is a little boring and am looking for some inspiration about how I could change it up to be more engaging from both the displaying of my collection and showing off the article and interviews I have written.
So what are some collection...
Every Veteran's Day I start to think about my family and how much they have sacrificed for this country. Both of my grandfathers fought in WWII, one for the US and one for Canada.
This was my grandfather that fought for what would become the USAF during WWII. He passed away when my father...
I traded an extra Altuve RC for a redemption card that was a GU/Autograph of some Dodgers rookie pitcher. I made the trade to help out an Astros fan that didn't want to pay that much money for a base card and, for me, trading a base card for an autograph is something I will do all day long.
World Series tickets are out of my reach with a two-year old. Standing Room Only is selling for $1000. Lord have mercy. But I'm not giving up hope. If you're interested in anything here, drop me a PM. Prices below each picture. Shipping is extra and depends on number of cards wanted. Very...

My wife got me an incredible Father's Day gift.
While there are a lot of rare autographs on here, there is one in particular that mattered for my collection.
Pidge Browne, pronounced "Brownie", has been the #2 name on my want list for at least a decade. He was not on the team represented...
I'm doing a super easy Twitter contest for this card:
This is a custom card of Armando Galarraga, the stolen perfect game pitcher.
To win just tag @AstrosAtoZ and post a picture of your favorite autograph from AstrosAtoZ.com. This must be done on Twitter. I will put your name in Random.org...
I made a trade with a member here and paid through PayPal. Having moved quite a while ago and making several purchases since moving, I just sent them money without a second thought. I went to check the tracking info and it had been delivered to my old address is Houston. I log into PayPal and...
For me, this seems like a very bad thing. The e-mail asked if I have ever tried Beckett Organize. So all of the time I spent putting my cards into Zistle, I am assuming, is about to go down the toilet.
