1962T Houston Colt .45s

As one of two expansion teams in 1962, the Houston Colt .45s took the field on April 10, 1962 beating the Chicago Cubs 11–2. This was the start of a three game sweep of the Cubs. Eventually the league caught up with them and though they finished 36½ behind the San Francisco Giants, they finished 6 games ahead of the Cubs and 24 games better than the expansion Mets.
They would only keep their politically incorrect name for three seasons, trading "Colt .45s" for the "Astros" to coincide with the opening of the Houston Astrodome in 1965.
Though this first team was well represented in the regular baseball set in 1962, a few players were missed. This RetroCard set includes: Pidge Browne, George Brunet, Jim Busby, Jim Campbell, Dick Drott, Ernie Fazio, J.C. Hartman, Jim Umbright, George Williams, plus a Colts Stadium card and a commemorative Inaugural Season card.
