Eddie Murray, 1985 Donruss 3x5 All-Stars #9

I got mail today! It was a pair of plain white envelopes taped together, from Friend of Blog (TM) Randy. Included were some 23 O's cards, many of which were brand new to me. I'll hold a few back for the coming days, but this was my absolute favorite from a sheer visual standpoint. The very 80's Tron border, the postcard size (because the only thing better than an Eddie Murray card is a BIGGER Eddie Murray card), and of course, the sheer Eddie-ness of both the action shot and the inset headshot. Some day I might have to make a list of my favorite cards of ol' number 33. Thanks, Randy!

The rippling of the gold chain on the follow through screams EDDIE!

Max - That it does indeed.

shoeboxlegends - Off the top of my head, I can only think of one Eddie Murray card I dislike...1987 Topps. They did their damnedest to make him look uncool and almost succeeded.
