Eddie Murphy hit .486 for the 1919 White Sox! It was the highest average on the team by far, even higher than Shoeless Joe Jackson. Problem is he only had 43 At Bats, but that's not his fault. Murphy was a pinch hitter and fill in guy and who wouldn't want a bench player that hits nearly .500. He was known as "Honest Eddie" for his role in the 1919 World Series as one of the "Clean" members of the White Sox. Taken by Paul Thompson and the condition is beautiful with deep tones and a vibrant white border which was Thompson's hallmark from this time period. One of his better images, this comes with a full letter from PSA as well (Type 1).
