Consistency, durability and dominance characterized the career of Eddie Murray. One of baseball's most productive hitters from the late 1970s through the '90s, when he retired Murray was only the third player to have collected both 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. The all-time career RBIs leader among switch-hitters, the three-time Gold Glove Award winner at first base was an eight-time All-Star and had six consecutive top-10 finishes in voting for the Most Valuable Player Award. Murray was a stalwart at first base for 12 seasons for the Orioles, capturing a world championship with Baltimore in 1983. This superb Baltimore Orioles home jersey was worn by Hall of Fame great Eddie Murray during the 1979 season, his third in the majors. Graded a perfect A10 by MEARS, this is undoubtedly one of the finest Murray jerseys in existence. The white knit jersey is lettered "Orioles" across the front and features the number "33" on both the left breast and reverse. "Murray" is arched above the number on the reverse. All letters and numerals are applied in orange on black tackle twill. On the inside right front tail is the Rawlings manufacturer’s tag noting size “40” with an adjacent flag tag noting “Set 1 1979”. Murray has beautifully signed the jersey in blue marker (grading "8/10') on the front. Solid usage wear is evident and the jersey retains ideal display quality. Graded A10 by MEARS, this a virtually unimprovable early career Murray gamer.

Letter from MEARS graded A10.
