Dale Murphy 2005 Upper Deck Classics – ‘Retro Rookies’

Dale Murphy 2005 Upper Deck Classics – ‘Retro Rookies’

It’s about time that I added a new modern card of Dale Murphy to my collection.  And while the card features an old-school ‘Murph’ in action, I still classify this as a vintage pick-up as it takes me right back to my youth.

I grew up with Dale Murphy on my television.  And I have a ton of memories watching him hit the hell out of the ball while also playing incredible defense all while wearing that glorious mid-1980’s Atlanta Braves uniform as seen in the below image.

Murphy was such a dominant baseball player throughout the decade – I really wish that he got more attention from the Hall of Fame voters…

Here is the card:

I now own 3 or 4 cards from this set.  I think I need to go after some more though – I really enjoy them and the memories that they re-kindle for me!!!
