zane smith isn't really canadian - he hails from georgia (the state, not the country in the former soviet union) - but he pitched for the montreal expos for a few years. his 1990 upper deck card saw him sporting the expos' colorful uniforms in colorful dodger stadium.
that made for a card that i needed to own, and bo at baseball cards come to life came through for me. i am pretty sure i have a complete set of 1990 upper deck back at my parents' house, so i had most likely seen this card 22 years ago. if so, i was reminded of it by a post at baseball card bust and i quickly added it to my bonus card list on the nefarious 9. thanks bo!
bo also sent me a frank robinson autographed card that was issued by canadian club whiskey in 1996
i don't own any mark grudzielanek signed cards, either, but i doubt he signs his full name anyway. maybe he does like billy grabarkewitz and just goes with the last initial.
i'm showing the back of this 60 years of topps reprint from 2011 topps because i actually do not care for the front at all.
moving on to a 2008 topps opening day card of andy laroche.
i'll finish up with a couple of cards from 2007 fleer ultra. here's jason schmidt
here's andre ethier's card from 2007 ultra
