Dale Murphy 2011 Topps – ’60 Years Of Topps’ – 60YOT Back

Dale Murphy 2011 Topps – ’60 Years Of Topps’ – 60YOT Back

It has been way too long since I featured a baseball card of Dale Murphy on this blog – 5 months to be precise.

So, let’s jump right into this one.  It is from the 2011 Topps set, and it comes from their ’60 Years Of Topps’ subset.  The card is a reprint of Murphy’s 1988 Topps base card, and it has the standard ’60 Years Of Topps’ back.

Have a look:

 

I like the set.  I like it a lot!

I just wonder how they chose which player was used for which year’s reprint.  Sure Murphy belongs, but it seems more fitting to include him in 1982 or 1983 versus 1988.  For 1988, I would have gone with Orel Hershiser or Jose Canseco.

Still, a great looking card and a nice addition to my Dale Murphy collection.
