Eddie Murray 2011 Topps ’60 Years Of Topps’ – 1979 Topps Design

Now this is more like it!!

A fantastic reprint of one of my favorite cards of Hall of Famer, Eddie Murray.

The card comes from the 2011 Topps ’60 Years Of Topps’ set and takes us back to 1979.

1979 – when fashion was hot, when Afros were grand, when sideburns ruled, and when the Baltimore Orioles sported a fantastic logo!!!

  1. I will never forget watching the Pirates/Orioles World Series that year in Baltimore. I was and am a Pirates fan, but having grown up just outside Gettysburgh, I was actually closer to Baltimore then Pittsburgh. Will never forget Rick Dempsey’s antics pre-game warming the pitcher up, and Murray was beginning to show what a stud he would become too. Great card Brian.

    • Thanks Ron! I find Murray to be one of the most underrated stars from his era. With those numbers, he should be regarded much higher. And today’s players should strive to do what he has done…

      • Ron Churchwell

        I concur. If my memory serves, I think he went through a stretch where he upped his batting average, RBI’s and Home runs, 5 years in a row. Something that was unheard of before.

  2. Ok I just checked and it was batting average and Rbi’s his first 4 years in the league that increased. His homeruns actually went down from 27 to 25 in 1979, before going back up to 32 in 1980.

  3. Oh, and the info came from my 1996 Score card. Have to give props to them! lol

  4. Great card of a great player!! @Ron where’d you grow up outside of Gettysburg? I grew up in Frederick, MD.
