Eddie Murray 2014 Panini Prizm – ZZZzzzzzz, ZZZzzzzzz, ZZZZzzzzzz
And the chants from the bleachers begin – ‘Boring, Boring, Boring’.
This card is simply awful. And it is no fault of the Hall of Famer, Mr. Murray.
Panini knows the rules that they must live by. And while it may make the job a lot harder than what others must work with, they are the rules and they must be complied to. Nonetheless, it is still Panini’s job to produce quality, interesting product – and this card is neither.
Even with team names and logos on a shot like this, the shot is not ‘Gold’. We need action, and we would much rather prefer an action shot of Eddie Murray with his back to the camera if he is crushing a ball at home plate, catching a throw at first from his shortstop, or rounding second and chugging towards third.
Note: If you have to remove the uniform and hat logos and team names from your product, you are removing crucial pieces of interest. You must make up for it with your image selection.
