Exhibit A: Those crazy uniforms.
Exhibit B: First stadium with
Exhibit C: Tal's Hill.
Seriously, a hill in centerfield? Crazy.
Exhibit D: Their #1 ranked farm system. I always like following the up-and-coming teams, perhaps because I'm a Cubs fan and that's all I have to look forward to. ... You know, the future.
I introduced myself to Bru, author of Remember the Astrodome, in a quick e-mail and dumped a brick of cards on him as a "Welcome to the Blogopshere" present.
A brick? Heck yeah: a 200-count box of set needs and 'Stros. Bru has some crazy organization skills on display for all to see in google docs format and his want lists were super easy to use. He's got everything covered from Colt .45s, oddball Astros, and '87 Topps. Yep, you know my affinity for '87 Topps. You guys should really check his blog out!
Bru even sent me a thank you package, which included a couple of Cubs and some cards for my '88 Donruss set.
Thanks for the cards and welcome to the Blogosphere, Bru!
