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.
