Montreal Expos Collectibles And Memorabilia are items connected with the defunct Canadian baseball team.

 

Brief history/biography

The Montreal Expos (or Les Expos de Montréal) were a professional Canadian baseball team based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The team was established in 1969 but relocated to Washington, D.C. in 2004 and eventually changed their name to the Washington Nationals.

The Expos' final game was on October 3rd, 2004 at Shea Stadium, and the team lost by a score of 8 to 1 against the New York Mets, (which happened to be the same team that the Expos first played against 35 years previous).

Some of the most notable players who once played for the Montreal Expos include Gary Carter (who played for the Expos from 1974 to 1984 and 1992), Andre Dawson (who played for the team from 1976 to 1986), and Tony Perez (who played for the team from 1977 to 1979).

The team colors were blue, white and red, and their theme song was "Les Expos sont là" ("The Expos are here") by Marc Gélinas.
