This was probably one of the first cards I sent off through the mail to have signed.
Joe Sambito began his career with the Astros in 1976. He played ball for them until 1984. My first time to see the Astros was in 1983, but unfortunately I did not get to see Joe play; he missed all of that season due to an injury, which eventually led to his retirement from baseball in 1987. At that time he was playing for the Red Sox.
Joe still has a career in baseball...more or less. These days he is an agent representing other baseball players.
