The stats on the back indicate that Headrick is from TCU. So far, 3 of the 4 '62 Texans that I've put on the blog came from Texas or Louisiana colleges.
Did they get local players due to easier scouting, public relations, lack of scouting budgets, or all of the above?

Branch was a defensive end for the Texans.
The Texans logo in the bottom right corner is pretty awesome too.

I think the Fleer cards pretty hilarious. They have coloration issues, centering is always a struggle, but you an find some cheap, nice ones on eBay.
This is Paul Rochester doing his best Dancing with the Stars. Is he doing the cha-cha?

This is my latest eBay deal - George Taliaferro, #89. The scan doesn't do this card justice. It's pretty well centered, one soft corner and a very minor crease in top left corner. Total eBay price: $8.00.

For $25, fans could enter the Spectrum and take whatever they wanted. It sounds like an awesome deal to get stadium used items like folding chairs, signs, bar stools. My first basketball and hockey games were at the Spectrum, including my first failed autograph attempt (thanks Moses Malone).
More on the last chance for Spectrum memorabilia here.

We caught up with Peter at a book store signing last month. Peter signed copies of his "Puff the Magic Dragon" book and a few others. Then treated the 100-200 people in the store to a small concert.
The audience consisted of grandparents, parents and toddlers. He entertained all of us with his song and his great sense of humor.
My boys brought a Puff CD for Peter to sign. The picture here is taken during the small concert and the video I captured from my phone.
