Eddie Murray, 1983 Donruss 3x5 All-Stars #1
As promised last night, here's the exquisite Eddie Murray glass from Zach.
As you can see, I christened it with a celebratory long-weekend beer. (Snow day tomorrow!) A Google search tells me that these glasses were from Horn and Horn Restaurants, which offered a series of six in 1985. The others were Cal Ripken Jr., Rick Dempsey, Storm Davis, Mike Boddicker, and Fred Lynn. Now I kind of want to track down the other five. I mean, I only have an entire cabinet full of drinking glasses at the moment...
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.
