576 - Montreal Expos TC
The Montreal ball club was one of four expansion clubs in 1969 and Major League Baseball's first expansion into Canada. The Expos would finish the 1973 season with their best record at that time at 4th place in the National League East.
About This Card
The Expos had never finished higher than 5th place in the National League East through their first four seasons. Rusty Staub, at the time, held all of the Expos batting records. However, Staub did not have a Topps card issued in 1973 (or 1972).
