Any Bagwells? Did the Wagner jerseys show heavy use? What about the Alou?

It was a good sale. I picked up a handful. One Wagner was pretty clean, but was a unique style. The other Wagner was pretty hammered! The Alou and Tejada both show great use as well. This sale had a nice selection of styles and colors, and a lot of different patches. I think there will be a lot more people wearing Astros jerseys around the stadium this year . Just in time for the big uniform change in 2013.

I got to the sale late and it was a zoo. Took me about 1 hour to check out. Picked up a 1999 road bat boy 2001 white star alt bat boy with flag patch, prototype cool base jersey from I'd say 2006. It's all black with Astros on front in tackle twill. It has the regular jock tag not the cool base one. Finally got a 1986 tbtc team issued blank. I missed out on a 2012 Jackie Robinson Day jersey. By the time I saw the guy in front of me with one they were all gone. Great sale. I'd really dent have too much time to look. It was grab what I saw I liked before someone else took it.

BamaHater,

According to Mike Acosta the black prototype jersey is actually from 2002. It was designed to be both a BP and regular game jersey. All the ones I have seen have the 0065 wash tag. A few do not have any velcro but most have a strip only on one side.

Good info. I just assumed it was a cool base based on the fabric and the underarm gussets like the current cool base jerseys. It's a unique jersey and i'm happy to add it to my collection.

thanks should have been more specific about Roger Clemens jerseys. wow $850 to $995 for a team issued? are those MLB Authenticated? if not, how does one know whether or not those were just left over blanks customized to players sizes jerseys?

I was in Houston in june for a couple of games and the Tristar Show...the Game Used booth is absolutely great, I picked up a jacket for $25 and a couple of authenticated bats (Michael Bourn & Jordan Schafer)...most (if not every) bat broken during the game goes on sale at the end of the same game, and when they come home you find on sale the bats broken on the road trip.

Last night at the game there was a 2006 red home Roger Clemens jersey for $950. I have never seen an MLB Authenticated game used or team issued Roger Clemens jersey at the Astros Authentics kiosk. Since 2009 when Astros Authentics started I have bought five game used Roger Clemens jerseys from them. I have talked to Mike Acosta many times about their Clemens jerseys. He has stated that the Astros do not customize extra jerseys. On the team issued ones it comes down to how much you trust the source. Even MLB Authenticated has issues. Last night I bought 2 MLB Authenticated Astros 1986 TBTC jerseys. Neither player played in the game but MLB has them in the database as game worn. While that may be their defination of game worn it is not mine.

all the game jersey from past seasons were going for $ 50, the batting practice jersey for $ 35 (all very marginal players). The bats of 2012 regulars I saw ranged from $ 85 (Wallace) to $ 175 (Schafer, JD Martinez...) but they gave you a 15% discount, than there were the Bagwells and the Biggios but I didn't inquire.
