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 #4 – 1985 Fleer
A posed portrait, yet so different from the other posed photography we were hammered with during the 1980’s.
I love this card. I love the look on Eddie’s face. I love the bright and bold coloring!!
At first glance, Eddie kind of looks like Samuel L. Jackson from his Pulp Fiction days. In fact, if they were ever going to make ‘The Eddie Murray Movie’, Jackson would be a prefect fit strictly based on his uncanny resemblance to Murray.
While the 1985 Fleer issue is a rather bland one, the card’s sharp coloring and team-themed look makes the card a winner. And that famous O’s logo in the top-right corner of the card is the icing on the cake!!!
