A ton of updates since my last post.

IMG_8800.jpg
Triple signed Bagwell, Gonzalez, and Rhodes rookie card. I did not get this cheap, but it was worth every penny.

IMG_8793.jpg
Lance Berkman also signed by Glenn Davis. I am a sucker for multi-signed cards.

Curt Blefary

IMG_8797.jpg
Bruce Bochy, Mike Fischlin, and Don Pisker (never made the team) signed rookie card.

John Hoffman

Erik Kratz, through a private signing. This is the only card ever made that shows him with the Astros.

Jeff Leonard

Matt Lindstrom

Jordan Lyles. Between him and Jon Singleton, I think we have definitive proof that weed is NOT a performance enhancer.

Tom Martin

It would not let me post so many images at once, so here is part two!

Justin Maxwell

Lance McCullers, Jr. I have had like six copies of this autographed card and never realized that I had a Minor League card in my permanent collection.

Man those doubles and triple are sweet! The Kratz is sweet too, met him a couple times when he was down with Lehigh Valley...

I need to get Lindstrom...I have his autograph, but I need a 3x5 or something saying “last pitch at Shea”, I have first pitch, first hit and last hit...

I see a couple former Dodgers in there too, well Davis shown as a Dodger, Jeff Leonard and Tom Martin. Luis Gonzalez was a Dodger too. Nice haul. Like the 78 James Rodney too. Classic set for signed cards.

I can't seem to figure out how to insert an image in the messages (maybe you can't?), so here are the two I was talking about.IMG_6783.jpg

I have Ernest Riles coming from a private signing. Once that auto arrives, Jay Dahl will be the only player I need from before 2017.

There is a Jay Dahl on eBay but the seller wants an insane price for it. I want it, but I am not a sucker.

One player knocked off of the needs list (down to 11!) and five upgrades including two HUGE upgrades. My wife also got me a photo system for Father's Day that I am still trying to perfect.

IMG_8984.jpg
First, the player off of the needs list is Ernie Riles. The image is terrible, but this is the only known image of him with the Astros and it was a 2inx2in photo in a yearbook. So this was the least grainy I could get the custom.

Five upgrades, starting with the biggies!

IMG_8988.jpg
Dual signed Nolan Ryan and Jose Cruz. This is an upgrade for Nolan Ryan from a team postcard and it is dual signed.

IMG_8987.jpg
I took a risk with this one. I found the card signed by Beauchamp who passed away quite a while ago. I sent it to Dierker and it came back today. Really pumped, because the upgrade is for Beauchamp, not Dierker.

Two upgrades today.

IMG_9128.jpg
JR Phillips (from a private signing) upgraded from a Minor League card.

IMG_9127.jpg
It is pretty beat up, but I got it at a good price. Pete Runnels upgraded from an Index Card.

Two upgrades since my last update. One huge, both tough.

IMG_9235.jpg
Yorkis Perez from a private signing. Another homemade custom card.

IMG_9234.jpg
Leo Durocher. Not SUPER rare, but hard to find at a good price. He does not have a ton of Astros stuff out there.

IMG_9239.jpg
