1983 Stuart #12




















Card Review: 9.4  This is a very strong effort for a promotional give-away set from Stuart (whatever they are, processed foods?).  I'm not sure how they got the go ahead to use team logo's and player's names, other than the obvious answer, they paid to.  This was another set that I didn't even know existed until twenty plus years after it's release.  This may be the best shot of Wallach wearing stirups to appear on any of his cards.  I've never fully understood why the Expos used a different shade of blue for their stirups and undershirts than they did for the hat.

Number of this card in my collection: 3

  1. I've never seen these. Stuart was a Montreal area baking company. The cards were inserted into packages of snack cakes.
