Sports Illustrated has a nice photo gallery documenting Carter's career, here.
So very sad. Montreal will never forget you.
RIP Gary :rose:

Was one of my all time favorite Expos
Gary Carter Went Out With A Win (Deadspin)
at the Deadspin link see the video of the moment above, with an absolutely great Harry Caray call
Any true BB fan remembers Gary Carter. I really enjoyed watching him play back in the day. Sad to lose him at such a young age. Prayers said for his family and friends.
Sleep peacefully Gary. :rose:
Thanks for the memories Gary...
MEET THE METS, MEET THE METS,
Step right up and greet the Mets!
Bring your kiddies, bring your wife;
Guaranteed to have the time of your life
because the Mets are really sockin' the ball;
knocking those home runs over the wall!
East side, West side,
everybody's coming down
to meet the M-E-T-S Mets of New York town!
R.I.P. Gary Carter
Although I did not follow his career or even know who he was, I am always deeply saddened to learn of anyone dying of a malignant brain tumor. Considering the length of time that passed between his diagnosis and death, I am certain that Gary Carter fought valiantly to defeat this horrible disease. Unfortunately it is a no-win situation most of the time.
Heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, and fans.
Here's a link to the "final career hit" video again - MLB (prigs!) killed the link at Deadspin:
An emotional moment for Expos fans indeed. Heck - for baseball fans anywhere. Storybook moment.
