I found a Virdon Team Issue buried in an Astros Photo Lot.
|1981 5x6 Virdon|
Along with Virdon I got 16 other Astros Team Issues and photos.
|1967 Arnold Umbach|
|1967 Grady Hatton|
|1995 Complete Team|
A couple more 5x6s of guys I don't even know. Woodeshick is hand dated March 1965 and Harrison is dates March 1966.
Another Grady Hatton this time in 5x6 from. No hand written date on the back this time. Instead typed on the back is:
Hatton, Grady 5-2-1973
That is the layout of the typing too. Never before have I seen a Team Issue with anything printed on the back.
|1986 Manny Hernandez|
The picture on the left has Sonny Jackson 1967 on the back and the right has Alonzo Harris OF 1967 on the back.
The Alonzo is strange.*** I can't see that he ever got a big league at bat. At least I can't find it on Baseball-Reference. But he did get a Topps RC card in 1967. That seems out of place as back then Topps usually didn't give anyone a card until their sophomore season.
***EDIT: Mystery solved, sort of. Alonzo Harris is listed as Candy Harris (for no known reason) He even has a Wikipedia page as Candy Harris that lists his name as Alonzo. He made it to the Astros roster at 19 and played a part of one season where he got one at bat and was a pitch runner 5 times before his season and career was ended due to military service.
