Lost in Translation

I've had this John Stockton card long enough that I don't remember where it came from.  Most likely, I bought it on eBay years ago.  But I could be wrong.

Anyway, as far as I know, this is my only foreign language card in my collection, but you wouldn't know it by just looking at the front of the card.

Looks like a fairly striaght-forward Upper Deck 1992 John Stockton card.  Flip the card over and you still might not notice anything out of the ordinary.

At least, not until you begin looking underneath the stat-line.

I'm not a language expert (as many who have been reading this blog for a while may have noticed, I barely understand the English language), but I'm going to venture a guess that the top paragraph is French and because there is an English paragraph underneath, I'm going to guess that this card was released in French Canadian Quebec.

Even if I'm wrong, I still like having a foreign language card in my collection.

Hi - I just found your blog and it's pretty good. There aren't enough Royals card blogs...I'm thinking of starting my own. :-)

The mid-90s Pacific baseball was half-Spanish half-English. That would be an easy way to pick up a few more foreign language cards.
