Still battling the scanner. It took like 10 minutes to edit this photo and it still looks off. Somehow it got squished top to bottom but not left to right. It's like an 8x8 now. I'll get it right one of these days.
This is an 8x10 of Bill Virdon when he was the bench coach for the Astros in 1997. How can it be 1997 when the little date at the bottom says 2008? Well for starters he wasn't the bench coach in 2008. More importantly is I have that shirt. No I don't mean I have just a white Astros jersey from 1997 I mean I have "That Jersey".
I picked up this Game Used jersey earlier this year. It is one of my three game used Virdon Jerseys. Actually it was my 2nd, I got my 3rd afterwards. Two Pirates and this Astros. I just need a yankees and an Expos one now. I'm always afraid to let one get past me because I'm afraid Topps will get hold of it and I will be chasing serial numbered Game Used parallels for years. I'm going to frame them one day but I don't have any of them framed yet. On every single one he signed the front of the jersey instead of the back by his number and I want it mounted with his nameplate showing.
