Not the biggest name here in Murphy but he was definitely a blue collar find. He doesn’t honestly pop up often so when he did I sent this card out immediately.

Well there’s a first for everything… I only failed on Kevin initially because he signed the penny sleeve! Ah well. I made it easy on him and resent the card minus the sleeve and he signed this sweet Action Packed card for me in no time flat.
