Joe played for Charleston in 1982 but had no card that I know of.He liked to clown around a lot such as posing as a left handed hitter , or as in these two minor league cards , a right handed stance with a left handed grip !
After being released by the Indians before the start of the 1984 season , Joe signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates as a free agent .
MCI and The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association , together , produced and sponsored the MCI Ambassadors of Baseball World Tour from 1992 thru 1996. Many ex baseball stars went on tour of overseas military bases and played softball games against base teams.They also made appearances at the base exchanges ( general stores ) and put on clinics for children. Military personnel who filled out an MCI application got a free set of cards.
This set was designed after the T202 Hassan Triple Folder set from 1912. Upper Deck also used this set to help promote B.A.T. ( Baseball Assistance Team ) which helped families , of any baseball related areas , who were in need.
Once again Upper Deck had the B.A.T. logo on the back of this set along with a parallel set with " MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL 125th ANNIVERSARY " stamped in bronze.
2004 FLEER GREATS of the GAME
Joe had 3 cards in this set. The base card , basecard auto and the blue bordered basecard, this one #'d 14 of 80
2005 TOPPS ROOKIE CUP ORIGINAL RELIC
When I first found out this card existed , my first thought was I have to have one ! Then I realized there was only 2 of them produced..... so much for that thought. Then one day the baseball card gods were thinking of ME for some reason. The #1/2 card showed up on ebay !!! Even then it took some help from the ebay gods to make my bid hold up. This was , no doubt , my most exciting acquisition !
" Super Joe " had to be included in this set even though he didn't have a long career.
2008 TRISTAR SIGNA CUT
Once again , not exactly an official card , but a nice addition # 72/75.
Well , there you have it. My " SUPER JOE " Charboneau collection. Also of note are a few more items I have , including a 1991 Cleveland Indians Yearbook with Joe on the cover , a 1981 All-Star Program with all the pages of tiny cards still intact , an All-Star game patch and a copy of the 45 rpm record entitled " Go Joe Charboneau ". I hope all who have followed this enjoyed it!
