The real Blues
Ya want powder blue jerseys? Well here's one for ya, or at least a little tiny shred of one. I'm not crazy about this card design from 2004 Donruss Throwback Threads, but the scrap from one of Hawk's Expos unis sure is throwback. This is where I would normally go on a five page rant about how each and every member of the Baseball Writers of America who refuse to vote Andre Dawson into the Hall of Fame are a bunch of drooling idiot troglodytes. But this isn't a post bashing Hall of Fame voters, it's a post celebrating throwback uniforms. So enjoy this three-quarter inch remnant of a formerly spectacular powder blue jersey and be thankful that unlike the backward members of the BWAA, you have sufficiently evolved enough to appreciate the beauty of such a fine uniform that was once worn by such a fine player.
Update: John Brattain is absolutely right about Dawson's teammate. It would be nice to see a pair of 'Spos going into the hall together.
