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.

Very sorry to hear about the wisdom teeth. As I recall, though, they usually send you home w/ some splendid painkillers. . . . In any case, lovely card here. I also love the somewhat more oddball yet colorful Murray cards from the early 80s: the ones from kelloggs, Drakes, and even Purina (which I didn't realize did cereals). Thanks for sharing.

Good luck Kevin! I had all four taken out at once, two impacted just like you, and I was home on the couch with painkillers watching a movie later that same day. You'll do alright!

I hope everything goes well. I had mine taken out about 5 years ago. Make sure you stock up on chocolate pudding and jello.
