1981 Topps Rich Murray

The front: Fantastic card, showing the Murray family’s sweet swing. This is Shea Stadium, which means this is June 15, 1980, when the Giants won 3-0. Murray went one for four; his second inning single off Pat Zachry was the first run of the game.

The back: The other Murray brothers, Venice and Leon, played one season each in the Giants organization.

The player: 1980 was almost all of Murray’s MLB experience. He appeared in four more games for the Giants in 1983.

The man: He now does baseball coaching in the San Francisco area.

My collection: I have two of his cards, 1981 Fleer and 1981 Topps. I would be interested in trading for 1978 Cramer Phoenix Giants #18.
