Trolling for cards

A couple of days ago, I received a package from oone of my Floridian friends. The Collective Troll had promised to send over some '76 Topps that I needed for my set. I am getting so close now I can taste it. Among the beauties sent was this Expos team card. BTW, "Retraits" is french for "withdrawl." So I'm guessing that's some kind of exit over there. But "exit" in french is "sortie" So what the hell do I know.
I remember as a kid watching the Expos on tv playing in Houston, and the PA announcer would announce "now batting.... Jose Cruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuzzzzzzzzzzzzz"
I thought that was pretty cool.
Troll also sent a few other goodies off of my wantlists...
a BMac that I didn't have...
a new Roach card. This is the first new Roach in my PC in a long time. I need to rectify that. Been ignoring him lately.
Why the hell am I showing off '87 Donruss??? Ole Cliff here is in the motion of throwing the Palmball! I haven't seen a good palmball since Bryn Smith. Google him if you have to....
One of the few remaining cards I needed for my '66 Topps Braves team set... Eddie played for the Braves for 46 straight years. Did we really need to airbrush out the logo?
and finally, a card that I have been chasing since the day it came out. I've never been able to acquire one until now....
Thanks again bud... I just sent out another package to you this morning.

Always glad when a package from me clears customs... I think that retrait was foreshadowing with regards to their withdrawl from the city of Montreal... Saw your old friend Mr. Laroche today. He gave me a present. Pictures to come...

I miss the Expos... Washington should give Montreal it's bad team back.
