Dale Murphy COMC Pickups

I’m bad deciding that I want to go back and collect players I did in the past.  Some of the names of players I’ve collected pretty intensely over the years are Russ Davis, Will Clark, Jedd Gyorko, Bob Sura, Chris Enochs, Darrell Whitmore, Steve Seabol, Steve Kline and Dale Murphy.

While I stopped trying to chase everything of all of those guys, I didn’t get rid of most of them.  However, I did with the Dale Murphy stuff and I can’t even explain why.  He was my first “favorite” player.  I’ve liked some of the recent sets he has been in and picked up a few cards.

1986 Leaf #60 Dale Murphy

This one isn’t a new card, but I just like it because it’s Leaf and not Donruss.  Growing up they were much tougher to come by.  This pickup was purely nostalgic.

2011 Topps Kimball Champions #KC91 Dale Murphy

This one appeals to me because of the retro look.  Nothing more and nothing less.

2015 Topps Stadium Club #24 Dale Murphy

I just love the picture and the uniform on this card.  I may go back and try to accumulate all of the parallels that I can get my hands on just for fun.  If you have any that you’re not in love with, let me know!
