#495 Eddie Murray
Why this card is awesome: Because this is one of the most beautiful cards in the set. It's a nice action shot of Murray, and using the orange font and orange border for the Orioles cards is great. But best of all is how Murray's front leg, back leg, and bat are all at the same angle as his name banner, giving the card a real sense of motion. Major kudos to the photographer and the person who chose this photo for the card.
Cool stat: Murray has the 3rd-most seasons all time with at least 17 HR. The only guys ahead of him are Aaron and Bonds.
Hall of Fame count: 33
