He managed the Astros between Bo Porter and AJ Hinch, never had a card made of him. This upgrades an index card.

One of my Twitter followers pointed out that I had a Gregerson on my tradelist and my needed upgrades list. So I have been sitting on this upgrade for at least a year!

Awesome Crawford! I have a weird, really unexplainable love for mid 70s Tigers cards and when I moved into being a passionate autograph collector, those became big targets as well. Like any team, they have their tougher guys. Ray Bare, Jim Ray, Jim Crawford, Reggie Sanders & Bill Slayback to name a few.

Tons of pickups since my last update, including one new addition! Also several amazing upgrades.

First, the new addition.

I got this one for $30. I still cannot believe I managed it.

GalanteMatt.jpg
Matt Galante upgrade, but this card is too cool. Unfortunately Cot Deal is no longer with us, so this one will never be completed.

HarrisBuddy.jpeg
Bill Harris upgrade, but another cool multi-signed card.

StricklandScott.jpg
Scott Strickland. He charges for his auto and gave me the dying Sharpie. Lame. But it is still an upgrade.

How did Tom Funk even warrant a broder? Never heard of the guy??? Usually those were the bigger names or hot players at the time. I didn't realize they did any common guys. Looks like the typical middle to late 80s designs, like the Cunningham set from around 86-87

Pretty awesome though that a guy like that has an Astros card so you can get it crossed off the list.

Broder actually made two Astros sets that were around 40ish cards each. It makes me wonder if he was based out of Houston.
