1974 TCMA Cedar Rapids Astros

 Another black-and-white mid-70's Astros low minor league team set.

Future major leaguer Luis Pujols gets his name butchered here.
Joe Sambito from Bethpage, L.I. Pitched several years in the majors.
Manager Leo Posada got the most action-packed picture in the set.
Don Buckheister sporting some great facial hair and a rarity in baseball card fashion - a sweater.
Another card of Rafael Tatis masquerading as his (relative?) Fernando, father and grandfather to major leaguers.
