Happy birthday, Gary Carter!

Since we gave a shout to the Toronto Blue Jays in yesterday's Top 10 list, how about a nod to the other Canadian team in Major League Baseball during the BOTNS era: The Montreal Expos! One of the franchise's most celebrated players had a reputation for never meeting a camera he didn't like, so it's easy to find commercials with the late Gary Carter, born on this day in 1954.

His Ivory commercials (It's "honest" soap!) got a lot of airplay in the 1980s when Carter had moved to the Mets. The Hall of Fame catcher died way too early in 2012.
