ALPHABETIC LIST OF
THE 50 BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
WHO DIDN'T MAKE MY ORIGINAL 100 FAVORITE PLAYER LIST
#37 IVAN MURRELL
ATLANTA BRAVES 1974
When the Braves got Ivan Murrell in 1974, I remembered that I had several copies of Ivan's 1971 TOPPS card (below) in my collection. I'm not sure why this was a cause for optimism after his acquisition as Ivan was at the tail end of his career when he joined the Braves. Ivan hit two home runs as a Brave, the last as a pinch hitter off Ramon Hernandez of the Pirates on July 20, 1974.
Ivan passed away at the age of 63 in 2006.
