Jim Wynn

Jim Wynn (AKA the 'Toy Cannon') started his career in Houston with the Colts back in 1963 and left the Astros in '73. He went on to play for the Dodgers, Braves, Yankees, and finally the Brewers.

Next week will mark the fourth anniversary of his number (24) being retired in Houston; Wynn was the 8th Astro to have this honor.

Wynn currently is a post-game analyst for Fox Sports, covering the Houston games. He is also very involved in the Houston community; in fact, his 5th annual celebrity golf tournament is coming up in a few days.

Here's the first of two cards that I sent Jimmy a few years ago.

1970 Topps
