Bible Card Sunday - Gary Carter

We all know who Gary Carter is, a great guy and super athlete elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003.

I will point out that his health has been rapidly deteriorating of late.  He has been falling a lot and a recent MRI revealed a torn rotator cuff.  A subsequent MRI on his brain revealed several new tumors.   He was diagnosed last May with a malignant brain tumor.

His daughter keeps an online journal here.

Gary's favorite verse is John 14:6
"I am the way, the truth, the life. No one comes to the Father except by me."

I recieved this card through the mail sometime before February 2004, that's when I started tracking my requests on I imagine that Gary included this card along with the card that I had sent him to sign.

This may have been the card that got me hooked on this particular style of Bible card - the colored frame with the players name in white on the bottom.

If you're of the praying type, put Gary and his family on your paryer list.

  1. I've heard of Gary's declining health, but I didn't know he was a fellow believer. Thanks for sharing this information. Thanks for sharing this weekly theme.
