1989 Houstonian

Let's move on to the next collectible that is created by the university, the yearbook. The University of Houston's yearbook is called The Houstonian. In general, I prefer sports collectibles, but yearbooks are a favorite of mine. You can check the sports teams, the fashions, the important campus happenings, and the biggest stories of the year. It's even better when the yearbook is from your time in school because you can see your friends.

This post is about the 1989 Houstonian. The football team went 9-3 including a 66-15 destruction of UT. The basketball team went a disappointing 17-14. The volleyball team was led by the greatness of Junior Julie Gates who was named to the first team All-Southwest Conference. The baseball team was led by Fred Hinojosa. Also on the team was Scott Sheldon, the future Texas Ranger who became the 3rd player in major league history to play every position in one game. The track team was led by current UH track coach, Olympic gold medalist, and twice holder of the 100 meter record.
