Hey everyone-
Pardon the intrusion. I just found this picture in a box of stuff and I can't put my finger on who it is exactly. Also, what year do you think it's from?

Thanks!

Hard to tell. Any way for you to get the pic to show up bigger?

I'd guess mid '70s. Feels like a pitcher.

The photo is without a doubt, Bobby Murcer, circa 1979.

nice photo, Rick. Is that yours, or a copy off the internet? I bet his autograph on a Cubs photo would be worth something.

Amazing Spriggs. And didn't we just have a discussion about the hat over the ball game recently?

Spriggs is a machine. I keep thinking how awesome it would be to sit in the bleachers with him one afternoon, drinking beer, and talking/watching baseball.

It would be TRULY awesome if you were buying the beer!
