Eddie, Eddie, Eddie!

That's right a triple shot of Eddie.

2008 Topps Triple Threads TTR-67.
I'm still trying to figure out what HOF means... are you not supposed to hassle him? You'd better know I'm just joking.
2007 Upper Deck Premier Patches PP3-EM. Tell me that's not a sweet patch.
2008 Topps Triple Threads TTR-69. This one might be a little lame. Is it really necessary to spell out someone's nickname with jersey and bat swatches?

Normally I would end this post by saying that I know Triple Threads is ugly, and it is, but there's something about the 2008 release that I like a lot. I would NEVER buy a box of the stuff or anything, but picking up individual cards for a mere fraction of a box price seems like a good deal to me. They really do look nice in person, very shiny, and full of "game used memorabilia".

So there you have it, 3 more Eddie Murray cards for the Hall of Fame collection. It was an honor to have seen Eddie in person, and no one was able to get Memorial Stadium rocking like Steady Eddie. I have very fond memories of being a little kid (younger than 10) and sitting in the bleachers while the crowd chanted the title of this post while stomping their feet. It felt like the whole stadium was shaking.


  1. Those are some nice looking cards, even the last one. You've caused me to go and bid on some HOF relic/auto cards. Darn you.

  2. eddie was almost as good a switch hitter as Chipper is.
