TORONTO BLUE JAYS
Most here are from the 1997 roster, but past and future talents are also represented.
Base signed: "Cito Gaston", "Pat Hentgen", "Benito Santiago", "Gene/Tenace", "Alex Gonzalez", "Willie Wilson", "Willie Upshaw", "Juan Guzman", "Paul Quantrill", "Roy Halliday", "Carlos Delgado", "Gordon Ash", "Tim Crabtree/37", "Alfredo Griffin" and 6 others. Regulation Franklin 13½x13½ white cloth base with MLB logo, signed in blue felt tip on top by all 20. CITO GASTON, who had managed the Blue Jays to World Championships in 1992 and 1993, failed to finish the 1997 season at the helm, as Toronto suffered its fourth straight sub-.500 season. GENE TENACE, Blue Jays coach (1990-1997) also left at the end of the season. He had picked up his fifth and sixth World Series rings with the '92-'93 Jays, after earning four as a catcher with the A's and Cardinals. GORDON ASH was General Manager of the Blue Jays from 1995 to 2001. ALFREDO GRIFFIN, Toronto's slick fielding shortstop in its championship seasons, was also a coach by 1997. WILLIE UPSHAW played for the team in its early years (1978-1987). Pitcher ROY HALLIDAY did not make the team's Major League roster until 1998. He did not emerge as a star starter until the next decade (41 wins in 1992-1993). Other signers include key members of the lineup and rotation, including Catcher SANTIAGO, 1st baseman DELGADO, shortstop GONZALEZ and starter HENTGEN. The Blue Jays remain the only team based outside the United States to have won a Major League World Series. Fine condition.
