1989 Topps Nolan Ryan

When you can find a mint card for a player as mighty as Nolan Ryan for only $1.00, I can't imagine any reason not to grab one (or 10).

This is part of the final bookend to the memorabilia collection of an amazing career. Houston may have cashed in their chips on Nolan, but he was still far from folding on an impressive career.

Just the same I wouldn't count out the future of this cards growing worth, especially with the many `stros fans who remember this era with fondness.

Contract disputes led to him leaving the team and joining the Texas Rangers. The end of his run with the Houston Astros was not the end of his popularity.
