Set: 1969 Montreal Expos Postcards (Rate)

Card: #29 Cal McLish

“ An interesting, first year postcard set done by the Expos- part color, and part black and white. The black and white cards seem to turn up last than their counterparts. For almost their entire the existence, the Expos did a set of postcards, and after 1977 they were always in color. Some of my favorite items in all of collecting. ” -PlayerPCCollector

“ what gives with the tribute to the Canadian teams....is there a clue hidden somwheres? ” -addysdaddy

“ With a birthname of Calvin Coolidge Julius Caesar Tuskahoma, I can see why he went by "Cal". He must have been coaching for the Expos when this was taken. I didn't realize he passed away in 2010. ” -NJDevils

“ Are you sure this isn't a hockey player? ” -bplay24

Card: #038 Tatsuya Ide

“ Is that catcher's mitt floating in the air? We used to use ghost runners when we played in our neighborhood but ghost catchers? ” -sascards67

“ I can only imagine how much fun the announcers could have had with this guy: "T.Ide cleans up the bases with that RBI!" "That double by T.Ide gets a loud Cheer from the crowd!" ” -wamk

“ Is it possible to say this guy's last name without sounding like you have a lisp? ” -wamk

“ I loved getting these cards when they first came out.. Moreso than the grey bordered. ” -Mike67

“ don't care for the card too much, but like the action shots- especially from the intensity a pitcher shows in the windup- although, he looks like he's about to lose his lower lip ” -tonym

“ I always loved hockey goalie masks because of the artwork the players put on the masks, so I was pretty excited when they introduced goalie-style masks for catchers. ” -duaned99
