1981 Donruss Dale Murphy

1981 Donruss Dale Murphy

This is the first card of Dale Murphy that I have picked up since choosing him as a new focal point of my player collections.

And away we go…

The card comes from Donruss’ premier issue in 1981.  Overall, the cards lacks originality, but I do like the rather large space they left for a big picture.  Normally posed photos and I do not get along, but with this card it works as we get to see a young Dale Murphy right before he was getting ready to dominate the National League and win back-to-back MVP awards during the 1982 & 1983 baseball seasons.
