Dale Murphy #299

Just an awesome shot of Murphy who would become the best player in baseball the next 2 years. This is just a nice tight close upper torso shot of Murphy in a batting pose. The powder blue of the Atlanta Braves uniform really stands out. I really like baseball cards of hitters who pose for their card in their batting stance. It makes the card feel more intimate to the collector.  I am not sure if the background is Wrigley Field or if this is a spring training shot.

Back Facts: Hit 3 HR in one game 5/18/79.
