Yesterday brought a major piece to my Astros auto collection:

There are three reasons he is so tough:

1) He died in 1998.
2) He only played 10 games for the Colt .45s, so demand for his autographs was pretty low.
3) He has the same name as a country music singer, former governor, former hockey player, and a former football player. Do a search on eBay for "John Anderson auto*" and you'll see how many famous people share his name. So finding his uncommon autograph in the midst of all of those autographs is tough. This was only the second one I've ever seen.

Just thought I'd share a major addition.
Nice addition, Billy! He is a tough one, I understand. Same thing with Pidge Browne. It's the lesser known players, who have since left us, who are always the toughest simply because there aren't that many examples of those players around.
he is one of about 200 I still need, so I am indeed jealous. You find the tough ones man
