What is the value of a 1989 Houston Astros baseball signed by the whole team?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A 1985 Toronto Blue Jays Team Signed Baseball with the key signatures: Stieb, Bell, Fernandez, and Fielder is worth about $100.-$150. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Prices may also vary based on the amount of signatures, and key signatures acquired. The more complete the baseball with key signatures the more valuable. If the signatures are not properly authenticated the baseball could sell at half the market value or less

What is the lowest attendance for a Houston Astros baseball game?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I'm going with the September 7, 1974 game between the Astros and Padres, which drew 3044 fans according to Baseball Reference.

There were games with lower attendance when they were the Colt .45's. Houston is no place for outdoor baseball.

What year were the Houston Astros founded?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The club was initially founded in 1962 as the Houston Colt .45's and defeated the Chicago Cubs in their first game, 11-2 on April 10. In 1965, the Colt .45's changed their name to the Houston Astros, and played baseball's first indoor game at the Astrodome on April 9, defeating the New York Yankees 2-1 in an exhibition game. So, to answer the question, the "Astros" debuted on April 9, 1965 though the Houston team had been in place for 3 years. The Astros first season in MLB was in 1962.
