Montréal Expos-Inspired BaseballBaseball_Expos_LightBlue_11x14 $44
Our Montréal Expos-inspired art print captures the essence of the team's roots in Canada. Many storied events in baseball have taken place in Canada including the day in 1946 when Montréal Royals slugger Jackie Robinson became the first black player in modern professional baseball to take the field. The growing popularity of the game paved the way for Canada's first major league franchise by 1969. The team took its name after recently hosting 1967 International and Universal Exposition or Expo 67. In 2004 the team left their fans behind and relocated to Washington DC, taking the field in 2005 as the Nationals. While the Expos themselves may be gone from Major League Baseball, the memories they left behind are still powerful to many baseball fans in Montréal.
The Inspiration behind our Montréal Expos-Inspired Art Print
Perhaps one day the league will reward the loyal baseball fans in Quebec with another Major League team. Until the Expos return, enjoy the memories with our unique art print. It features a rendering of the geodesic dome from Expo 67 as well as vintage baseball bats, all featured on an antique map of Montréal. This print offers a nostalgic souvenir to fans that remember (or mourn) the loss of their Expos. It's a true must-have for any Expos fan's man cave, sports room or wall of fame!
