During the summers of 1983 and 1984, one of the favourite ways for my brother Paul and I to pass our time was to write fan letters to big league baseball players and ask for their autographs. The Montreal Expos players proved to be particularly obliging.
I think the first player we heard back from was no other than Gary Carter himself, and once we realized that Expos players would send us postcards, we stopped including bubble gum cards with our letters.
Recently, I stumbled upon an old photo album that houses all of our Expos autographs from this era. Looking through the album was a wonderful trip down memory lane, so I thought I’d share these postcards with you. Hope you enjoy.
