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 #3 – 1979 Topps
Yes, I know it’s a posed photo from Spring Training. And yes, they tend to be my least favorite kind of photograph used on a baseball card.
But this 1979 Topps Eddie Murray card was the first card I picked up of Murray since I got back into the hobby. I found this ‘Bad-Boy’ resting quietly in a bargain bin at a card show sometime in early-2009 and I paid just $1 for it. Not too bad of a deal for a 2nd year card of this Hall of Fame legend!
The 1979 design was rather dull, but it did offer a nice, big photo – and that always works for me. I also like the retro Topps logo used on this card!!
