1962T Houston Colt .45s

Series 1 - (Series 2)
The Houston Colt .45s made their first appearance on baseball cards in the 1962 Topps set.  A total of 27 Colts players and manager Harry Craft were pictured in the set.  Of those 27 Houston Colts in the set, one was listed with his previous team on the front of the card, one player never played for the Colts, and only one player was pictured in his Houston uniform.  Since Houston was a National League expansion team in 1962 Topps wouldn’t have had any photos of Colt personnel prior to their printing of the first few series of cards in the 1962 set.  To remedy that situation and to include every player and the entire coaching staff of Houston’s inaugural big league team, a 48 card set with everyone pictured in a Colt uniform has been produced. This 48-card set (Series 1) is reminiscent of the 1962 Topps cards, complete with the wood grain borders and Topps style card backs.  The set is numbered according to the player’s appearance in the Colt .45s lineup.  Cards 1-9 are the opening day starters.  Card number 10 is Houston manager Harry Craft.  Cards 11-44 represent the remaining players that were on the Colts roster during the 1962 season, numbered according to their first time in the lineup and cards 45-48 are the four coaches.  Since 2012 is the 50th anniversary of the first Houston Colt .45s game, this is perfect timing to commemorate Houston’s first big league baseball team.

Series 2 completes the Retrocards Houston Colt .45s set with 39 additional cards -1963T & 1964T.
