Happy Canada Day!

Today is Canada's 149th birthday - so hopefully no better way to celebrate than look at a Canadian team card or two....and the last batch of baseball cards from Listia - here is the final 20 for now...never know, I may pick another one up if given the chance...


Jack Morris had one awesome 'stache - sorry Leach, yours just doesn't compare.

The rest

Greg Zaun years before being a Jays analyst on TV...and generally early on in his career seeing as how this touts the rookie.


One of those sets that I am not actively collecting at all, but will probably look to complete some day will be 1986 Topps. I really like the simple design and it is so classic mid 80s design.

As for the Santa Lot 20....


Well, not a bad pick up for the day. I like the pick up of the blue used with the background and the Leaf blue - simple and well designed card.

The rest

A couple Tkachuk cards (I prefer the photo on the Upper Deck card rather than the SPx card.


My favourite of these would be the Jeff Garcia card - took a while to come around on him after Montana in San Fran, but he was a solid QB in his own right. I don't think he ever found the same form/success once he left San Fran.

  1. If you do decide to collect 1986 Topps, I'll gladly send you any I have that aren't in my Jays/Expos... Not one of my favourites..

    1. Likely once I get 1989 Topps done, I'll turn my attention to it...
