1984 Stuart #14




















Card Review: 9.7 This is not a bad looking card for a processed foods company promo item. It's unusual that Stuart was apparently granted the rights for both the team logo and players likeness for use on their cards.  Probably had something to do with the Expos being from Canada.  All in all the front design of this card is better than the Donruss and Fleer designs from '84.  The only thing keeping me from rating this card even higher is the lack of stats on the back.  I honestly prefer this card to the over glossed stuff Topps in putting out today. 

I didn't discover these Stuarts (there's also an '83) until about 25 years after they produced.  Its the sort of card that really would have been the center peice of my collection had I obtained one at the time they were being made. 

Number of this card in my collection: 5
