Collecting Astros, Nolan Ryan

Posted by houstoncollector on March 30, 2008

The Ryan Express. Even though he went into the Hall of Fame as a Ranger, I will always be a fan of Nolan Ryan. Most of my collection of him are base and inserts, with one GU and one oddball that I cannot find information about (scan forthcoming). There’re so many cards I’d love to have of him, including Autographs, but of course the holy grails are the 1968 Topps and 1968 Topps Venezuelan issues.

Naturally, what I have is after the cut.

2006: Topps Co-Signers, Topps Rookie of the Week

The only GU I have of Nolan Ryan is the 2005 Classic Clippings Cut of History. It’s a single white swatch, but it’s of a HOF and someone I cherish, so I’m happy with it.

Also, I have one card I can’t find any information on.  As far as I can tell it’s a 1991 Sports/Educational card, but that doesn’t tell me anything.  If you know anything, please let me know.
