this 1991 topps stadium club card of eddie murray reminds me of lucille ball and a classic episode of 'i love lucy'.
he's got a ball in his hand with another one about to be fielded by his glove. pretty soon he will have to stuff balls in his hat and elsewhere, because joey amalfitano is going to keep hitting fungoes at him like the conveyor belt in that chocolate factory kept bringing the candy. all that's missing is todd benzinger standing next to steady eddie suffering the same fate.
a long while back, i won a contest at 'all trade bait all the time', and along with my winnings, oscar sent along some dodgers, including that steady eddie up top. here are some more that came along for the ride.
2003 donruss estrellas shawn green
apparently shawn green is a gardener. at least, that's what i thought jardinero meant. i guess it also means outfielder. which is the same as voltigeur, if you are speaking french, which also means tumbler or refers to napoleonic infantry units.
i have looked at this 1970 topps dodgers rookie stars card hundreds of times over the years. well, not this copy, but one just like it. it features ray lamb and bob stinson
garvey did get a card in 1971, however, and that card was reprinted in 2010 topps update as one of the cards your mom threw out
here's steve yeager's 1982 donruss card
another donruss card, sans the tight pants. this one is the duke snider hall of fame diamond king from 1984 donruss
successful, which was pretty awesome.
last, but not least, we have this 1996 fleer insert (were there even base cards in 1996 fleer?) of raul mondesi
always nice to add a card of rauuuuuuul to the collection. thanks for the cards, oscar!
