At the end of January, I showed off a soccer card of Cyle Larin, to celebrate that he became the Canada's top goal scorer in international play. But there was a few more players from the Great White North outside of hockey that I decided to throw into the mailer. And getting to them less than 3 months after their arrival (at least for some) seems positively speedy for me.the tongue of the player's birthplace, they just use the license plate.

Which look pretty accurate.
If you read my gushing over Fred VanVleet, you know that I love stories of undrafted players making it in the NBA. So, when a Canadian starts putting up a solid career with that parameter, I'm gonna hunt down their autograph. Even if it is an initials-only signature.
It wasn't until after hearing of his death that I realized I didn't have an autograph of his. A Canadian player who had an autographed card as an Expo? How did I not have one of his cards? Not even one of his base cards with the team? I guess when you realize your error, you might as well get the nicest card available for both those parameters. Even if it does seem ghoulish to do so right after his passing.
There you have it!
