Vintage Fridays: Eddie Murray, 1980 Topps #160
I'm a bit preoccupied this weekend because I'm having my wisdom teeth removed on Monday. Yes, all four of them, and the top two are impacted. So it's a bona fide surgery, with the cutting into the gums and all of that fun stuff. It's not the ideal way to celebrate Eddie Murray's 58th birthday; instead of raising a glass to one of the all-time great Orioles, I'll be getting the knockout drugs. I've never had surgery of any kind before, and I've heard just enough horror stories from friends and coworkers (two words: dry socket) to give me pause. So keep me in your thoughts next week, and try to understand if I'm scarce around these parts for a few days.
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.
