My Eddie Murray ‘Fab 5′ – Card #5

Now that my Eddie Murray player collection is complete I wanted to take the time to show off my favorite 5 cards from this set.

Card #5 – 1983 Topps

When card number 5 of a ‘Fab 5’ list starts with the 1983 Topps base card, you know that the list is going to be good!!!

I love everything about the 1983 set, and if I had to rate all of the sets issued in the 1980’s, this one would be very close to the top.  The card has it all – large action photography, small close-up cameos, and colors that coordinate with the player’s team.

On this card, we have a very focused Eddie Murray as he prepares to do battle from the left-side of the plate.  As he gets into his batting stance, the look of focus and concentration is very clear.  And even in the cameo on the bottom-left corner of the card, Eddie means business!!  The Orange and Brown details of the card’s border and text are perfect compliments to the Orioles team colors!!
