Top row: Bat on shoulder
Although a lot of Jays fans weren't happy with the team messing with the original logo, I rather liked this version. Both the updated Blue Jay in the leaf, along with the 'T' logo were a solid update to the classic logo. I don't have a whole lot of the original 2001 Heritage release, but the Mondesi card makes me wish I did.
Middle row: Thumbs up to MVP
When I saw the 2000 Bowman card of Mondesi holding his thumb up for the camera, I knew right away that this card had to be the centerpiece for this page. While I've been a fan of the MVP releases over the years, I have to say that the 2002 version on the left is a little loud for my taste.
Bottom row: The swing
That long follow through, it's what I remember most about Mondesi. What makes me sad about the limited time that he had in Toronto is that he was traded to the Yankees for a pitcher that appeared just 3 times in the majors. That was in 2002, and surprisingly Mondesi became a part time player after that, rounding out his career just 3 years later.
