Remembering Gary Carter

Another Hall of Famer was lost today when Gary Carter lost his battle with brain cancer at the age of 57.

Carter is historically regarded as one of the greatest catchers to ever have played game.  From 1974 to 1992 he collected 2,092 hits, 324 home runs and a lifetime average of .262.  He won the World Series with the 1986 Mets.

Here, Carter can be seen on his 1975 Topps Rookie Card.
Here is an example of a ball signed by Carter that I picked up late last year.

I would like to extend my condolences to Gary Carter's family, fans as well as Expos and Mets fans.  Baseball lost one of its all time greats today at too young an age.
