Eddie Murray, 1984 Topps Purina Dog Chow Insert

Name: Eddie Murray
Team: Baltimore Orioles
Position: First base
Value of card: One plastic undershirt
Key 1983 stat: A monumental afro-muttonchop-mustache combo
Plot summary for Eddie Murray's Blaxploitation film, "The Black Bat": The slugger plays Murray Edwards, a baseball star who forces a trade to Baltimore after his brother is killed there. He quickly befriends the team's troubled bat boy, and attempts to take him under his wing, steering him clear of the streets. But the bat boy soon disappears, and Edwards despairs, feeling his influence was for naught. He eventually learns the bat boy was kidnapped, forced into pornography and later murdered. Edwards sets out to kill everyone directly involved, including a porn star, the Orioles' owner and even the Phillie Phanatic. Pam Grier also probably makes an appearance.

  2. This is true. But "Purina Dog Chow Insert" just has such a nice ring to it.
