There is a story to go along with why this is my favorite Topps card. I wanted this card back when I was about 10 or so after reading a story about Eddie Murray. My uncle had one in his collection and the only way he would let me have it was if I dove off the high dive at the local pool. The thing is, I wasn't much of a swimmer back then and I almost drowned after jumping into the pool.....so I basically risked my life for the little piece of card board. My uncle lived up to his end of the bargain; however, I was able to only enjoy the card for about a year because it ended up getting destroyed in a fight with my brother. I treasured that card for the short time I had it. I have yet to replace the Murray RC in my collection, but I will one day!
