Collected baseball cards from 1986-1995, and again from 2014 to Present. A simple blog to discuss the hobby.
It would be cool to see the Expos back, but it would take a lot of work. They would need a new stadium and an ownership group that has some financial clout. This is a good article.http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/19/sports/baseball/baseball-fever-remains-in-montreal-with-hope-of-a-new-team.html
Yeah, the articles pop up every couple years or so, I think it will come down to whether or not MLB is willing to expand again (I think at this point that is unlikely). There are a small number of teams that might consider relocating, but it doesn't make financial sense to move a baseball team out of the United States right now.
Collecting cards of teams that no longer exist (Expos, Browns, etc.) is a side project of mine. I always like buying Expos cards and pop when I pull one out of a pack. As for Youppi, last I heard he was picked up by the Montreal Canadiens.
I'll have to check at the Expo in November and see if there is another dollar bin that has those little Youppi figures.
For some reason, I've been falling madly in love with that '81 Donruss Raines rookie ever since I found it for a dime at the National.
I think it's all about the stripey armbands.
