Eddie Murray, 1981 Fleer Star Stickers #117
Hey! I actually have a relevant Eddie Murray story to go along with the obligatory card of #33. Last night, my sister and I arrived at Oriole Park at Camden Yards at about 6:00. I was meeting an old friend for a beer at Pickles, so Liz decided to go straight into the park. As she was crossing Washington Boulevard, who should pass by her on a golf cart but Eddie himself. He said hello as he rode by, presumably en route to the on-field pregame ceremony for Brooks Robinson. Then, the O's went out and pulled out a big 4-3 win over Boston, propelling the team once again into a first-place tie with the Yankees. With a win and an Angels loss this afternoon, the Orioles would clinch a postseason berth. What a strange thing to type. Don't wake me, please.
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.
