RIP Gary Carter

As an avid baseball fan and baseball card collector, Gary Carter was a superstar during my childhood. I own hundreds of his cards and remember watching him play like it was yesterday. I was not a huge fan, but Carter was a true gentleman, known for his sportsmanship, love for the fans and the love of the game. He played the game fair, honest and the right way, something hardly seen these days.

Sadly, Whitney Houston’s death will overshadow his death. Unlike Houston, Carter wasn’t a former crack head and pill popper that was found dead in a bath tub. God bless his family and friends. A true baseball legend has been lost.
