Yikes! This one should have been a quick post, but I let it get delayed nearly two months now. I received a very nice little PWE from Pat of Hot Corner Cards a short while ago, saying he struck gold in an Astros hot box.
I eagerly pulled out the cards to find what was inside, and…
Pat’s hot box didn’t stop there, though – the big score was a 1979 buyback of Astros outfield Wilbur Howard! This was an awesome surprise.
By the by, does anybody know of a checklist for the buybacks from year to year? I know there are at least two Astros – well, one Colt .45 and one Astro – in this year’s set.
Thanks again for the cards, Pat! Sorry it took me so long to post!
