    I am in the same boat with Dodgers, but due to that move to LA in 1958, I have a convenient break in which to separate the collection. I am close to 100% complete for LA (I think I may still need 2-3 more at this point, all recent, but Brooklyn will always be impossible to finish.

    It has been a crazy month, so I haven't been updating this. So a good number of additions.

    First, the new autographs. Corbin Martin debuted two days ago, but I already had his auto. So I just moved this from one place to another.

    And I added a relief pitcher that I was shocked Topps made a card for, Framber Valdez!

    Two new players added to the needs list, Jack Mayfield and Garrett Stubbs.

    But my total needs remains the same because I have two new autos and one upgrade.

    Rick White has eluded me. He is like 93% TTM but NEVER responds to my requests. So I broke down and bought this one.

    Cionel Perez. Panini has released several that I need, but I avoid these because of the lack of logos. I got this one for less than $2 shipped, so why not? It will go on my list of needed upgrades.

    Finally, Asher Wojciechowski upgrade. I had a 4x6 photo, but I far prefer cards.

    Added Yordan Alvarez to the needs list. His cards are priced crazy right now, so just a matter of waiting for the market to correct on his autograph.

    Two names knocked off the list and two updates.

    Myles Straw. It is on a logoless Donruss card, but one of the Team Collectors sent it to me for free, so definitely happy to knock it off the list!

    Russ Kemmerer. Upgrade from a HORRIBLE custom I made years ago. I believe one of the first customs I ever made.

    No additions today, but with Jose Urquidy appearing just before the All Star Break, he is now on my needs list.

    He is also the only Houston Astros player with a last name starting in U that is still alive. The other three all died relatively young! Jim Umbricht died of cancer as an active player. Cecil Upshaw died of a heart attack in his 50s. Jose Uribe died in a tragic car accident.

    Two upgrades. Both of these are customs that @jbhoffman designed a template for and I added the appropriate pictures and information. I am using these for guys that do not have any Astros/Colt .45s cards.

    Need Urquidy badly. Sent him TTM to Minute Maid short after his debut but was sent down, I don't know if the Astros might have hold unto that letter.
    As of today I am 129/130 with my Mexico collection.
    Edgar Gonzalez Collection: - the 1/1's: 108/111 (97.3%) Have 12 1/1s out of 29
    Jorge Cantu Collection: 487 / 688 (70.78%), 58 1/1s (14 non plates)
    - the 1/1's: 429/443 (96.84%)
    Total Mexican Collection: 4,326
    Mexican autographs: 129/130 and on baseballs 118/130

    If Topps follows their pattern, he will be in next year's Stadium Club release.
