In Their Own Orbit

Among the cards of the 1973 Topps baseball card set are cards showing each team assembled together.

Card #138, Houston Astros Team Card

Here are the Houston Astros, wearing the home uniforms they used between 1971 and 1974. Under Hall of Fame manager Leo "The Lip" Durocher, they went  82-80 and finished 4th in the National League West. It would be the team's final season with a winning record until 1979.


  1. I miss team checklist cards with odd guys in them that you spend hours trying to figure out who they are...

  2. What great uniforms! That guy on the right really went all out with the team colors.
