Murray as a ‘Bad Dude’ and one that not too many pitchers wanted to mess with for fear of the numerous ways that he could beat you at the plate.

This card is from the 2014 Topps Archives set, and it features the 1986 Topps card design.

Oh, and check out the ‘E’ in Orioles – kind of a weird font, right?

I had to go back to my Murray from the original 1986 Topps set to see if it was new or true to the original design, and…
