290237  Power Alley  1982/83

Murphy won consecutive MVP awards in 1982,1983,  Silver Slugger Awards for four straight years, 1982–1985, and Gold Glove Awards from1982–1986.

Atlanta's Dale Murphy reportedly shot this iconic 1980s poster in an alleyway in West Palm Beach.  He's holding a yellow Wiffle ball bat that had a flourescent bulb in it to give it a Star Wars light-saber look.

290238  Tiger Catcher    1982/83

Parrish's most productive offensive season was 1982 when he posted a .284 batting average with 32 home runs and 87 runs batted in, winning another Silver Slugger Award in the process. He followed that in 1983 with 27 home runs and 114 runs batted in. Parrish was an integral member of the WS champ  1984 Detroit Tigers team hitting 33 home runs and 98 runs batted in The poster pictures Detroit catcher Lance Parrish posing with a bengal tiger. While the 1985 Nike promo set would seem to date this poster as 1985, we think this was reprinted after his outstanding WS season.

Sax was NL rookie of the year in 1982. The poster depicts Steve Sax and his 1934 hot rod in the hills of LA.

Harris was the first round draft pick and rookie of the year in 1972 and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 1972 - 1980. His career ended in 1983/84. The poster depicts Franco Harris in the Steel City.
