Expos Stars: Javier Vazquez #2

Vazquez 07Bowman

1997 Bowman #256
How Did I Get It?:
From a 1997 Bowman box in 2003.
Did You Know?: Vazquez made his Major League debut on April 3rd, 1998, against the Chicago Cubs, giving up 3 runs in 5 innings.
Rating: 6/10 – Not sure how I feel about this Bowman set…it has a lot of great rookies, but the design is only so-so. Of course, this is one of those pitching photos that make the player look goofy, but Vazquez is kinda goofy-looking anyway.
Vazquez 40 man
2002 Upper Deck 40-Man #725
How Did I Get It?:
Pack 0f 2002 40 Man from a repack box.
Did You Know?: Vazquez led the league in hits allowed in 2002, with 243.
Rating: 3/10 – Not a big fan of the 2002 40 Man design, and it’s  a dirt-common shot.
Vazquez Leaf
2003 Leaf #198
How Did I Get It?:
Pack of 2003 Leaf bought in 2003.
Did You Know?: Vazquez pitched what should have been back-to-back shutouts in August of 2001. The second one was lost in extra innings after Vazquez pitched nine shutout innings.
Rating: 8/10 – I love the 2003 Leaf design (wish I hadn’t accidentally cut the top off), and the action shot is pretty good.
Vazquez Pacific
2000 Pacific Crown Collection #172
How Did I Get It?:
Pack of 2000 Pacific Crown Collection from a repack box.
Did You Know?: Vazquez had a 1.415 WHIP in 2000. Ouch.
Rating: 8/10 – Think that’s Wilton Guerrero in the background there; he filled in at second base quite a bit in 1999.
