Eddie Murray, 1984 Donruss #47
This is a pretty strange photo. It looks like the ball is getting ready to bury itself in Eddie Murray's cheek, yet Steady Eddie isn't flinching in the slightest. If I had to guess, I'd say that he stared the ball down, causing it to freeze in terror an inch away from his face. The ball then slunk away meekly, grateful that Murray showed mercy by not clobbering it into the stratosphere.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
