I’m collecting the 1981 set, slowly but surely. This post is the latest in my quest for the completion.
- Card Facts – Joe Niekro – Houston Astros – Card #722
- Purchase Price – free (trade with “JABO’s”)
Joe, brother of Phil, Niekro. I don’t remember Joe as much as Phil. I wonder if he threw the knuckleball as well. I want to say he was around for awhile so I assume he was a pretty decent pitcher. I remember these jerseys but I don’t know if I ever noticed the Astros isn’t centered but motre towards the left shoulder. Is this not the jersey or just a warm up or a t-shirt or something. Maybe Sam can help a brother out.

This is the 2nd Astro card in a post in a row. The way I pick what card to post is I have them all scanned and in alphabetical order. I ask my wife to pick a number from 1-100 and then start where I left off the day before and count to that number and that’s the card I use. So it’s more or less random.
