1983 Fleer Eddie Murray

1983 Fleer Eddie Murray

Ewww, ’83 Fleer!!!

But wait a minute, this card doesn’t look too bad.  In fact, it’s actually pretty nice!!!  I cannot believe that I am saying this, but I like this card.  I don’t think that the worst border color in baseball card history works well for most teams and their corresponding colors, but for this Orioles card it’s not bad at all.  The muted tone allows for the Orioles’ Orange to jump off of the card.

Eddie had a monster year in 1983.  He was an All-star, Gold Glove winner, Silver Slugger winner, and finished second in the MVP race.  During the season, he compiled a .306 batting average while collecting 178 hits.  Among his many impressive numbers are his 30 doubles, 30 home runs, 115 runs scored, 110 RBI, and just 90 strikeouts in 680 plate appearances.
