    I've got a collection of Houston Chronicle and Houston Post newspaper sections from the Rockets' championship years and playoff runs (mid-90's)...plus a number of other Houston-related sports sections from the mid-80's (Astros-related). I need to unload these as (like white lightning before me) I may be relocating soon and alleviating as much excess as I possibly can is desired.

    All newspapers have only been folded in half (with the exception of one). All of the magazines are in good condition as are all of the Rockets signage that I pulled from newspapers or snaked from newspaper machines.

    Asking $42 plus shipping/handling. Unfortunately, USPS does not consider newspapers or magazines as media mail so there is no super cheap way to ship this. The box is 17" x 12" x 6" and weighs 9 pounds even. I did a quick quote for shipping via UPS and Fedex and Fedex was cheaper (used origination of 89044...here in Henderson, Nevada...and 04101 as the destination...somewhere in Maine...tried to use worst possible shipping distance). From Henderson to Maine, the rate was roughly $18. So...if you're cool with Fedex and you live significantly closer to me than Maine, shipping should be cheaper. Payment via Paypal please. First one to claim and actually pay gets the goods.

    Here's a list of everything included...

    Sports Illustrated - July 4, 1994 - Houston Rockets Souvenir Issue
    Sports Illustrated - Special Collector’s Edition - Twice is Nice
    Hoop - March 1994

    The Astros - September 1988 - Astros vs. Cardinals scorecard included
    Astros Baseball - 1986 - Astros vs. Padres scorecard included

    Houston Chronicle - June 15, 1995 - Two-rrific! - four sections

    Is the autograph poster included? Everything in the image included? Because it seems like there are more items in the images than items you have listed.

    Sorry. Did not get the PM.

    Everything in the pics is what you'll get...including the autographed (printed...not actual autographs) poster. :)
