Four if by Sportlots

 Another PWE of cards from Sportlots, coming in at the happy 4 card limit before pricing goes skyward for shipping.

I don't really super collect cards featuring special  patches, but figured this one was interesting enough to add. This wasn't a memorial patch, but instead salutes Vladimir Konstantinov and Sergei Mnatsakanov, who were seriously injured in a limousine accident when the driver, who had a suspended license, fell asleep at the wheel.
It is also visible on the reverse of the card.
On a more cheerful note, here is a very orange addition to my Canadians in MLB mini-collection. 
I don't know if this card provided the best look at Colorado's City Connect uniforms among flagship's cards, but a glance through COMC images at the time sure seemed so. 
And finally, an interesting photo. With how Jose Castillo is perfectly positioned with Hank Aaron's bat behind him, the photo almost has the quality of one of those Upper Deck multi-image cards from the early 90s. Almost. Either way, it does give an unexpected cameo by Aaron on a modern card.

There you have it!
