Today's Card ...   Dale Murphy  --- 1976

                                                                                September 19-21, 2014   

A youthful Dale Murphy would hit .262 in 19
games during his rookie campaign as a
catcher during 1976 when this card came

He would go on to win two MVP Awards
(1982 & ’83), five Gold Gloves as an
outfielder and seven All-Star Game
appearances. The righty swinger would slug
398 home runs during his 18-year career
that was spent primarily with the Atlanta
Braves, with stops in Philadelphia and
Colorado at the end of his career.

Lastly, he would have his number retired by
the Braves in 1994
--- Number 3 --- not
rookie digits of 52.
