There are three living Astros that are just darn impossible to get. Adlesh is one of those guys. I've seen three signed items by him ever (including this item). This is the only individually signed item I've seen, though a buddy has a signed card apparently. Everything else I've seen has been on team balls.
But to make it even more awesome, check out his hat. That was prototype hat for the Astros that was never used in a game. It was worn for three exhibition games and never worn again. This was the design they came up with for ST the year after they changed their name from the Houston Colt .45s to the Houston Astros. Thankfully they went with a more stylized H later. I'm sure houbb will tell me I'm slightly wrong about this, but I'm pretty sure I got this story right
So there you go. I am buzzed about a catcher few have ever heard of
