Expos Rookie Cards: Casey Candaele

For some reason I cannot fathom, this guy was a big deal in 1987. He was a 26-year old rookie with a .272/.330/.347 line. And he finished third in rookie of the year voting that year. Huh? My guess is it’s simply a testament to how weak the 1987 NL rookie crop was – Benito Santiago won that year, and out of the 10 top vote getters only he and Randy Myers went on to have significant careers. Anyway, here are all of Candaele’s 1987 XRCs and his 88 Topps RC.
