Crime Dog’s Press Box Fire
This purple creme harkens back to July 20, 1993 — the day that Fred “Crime Dog” McGriff was traded to the Atlanta Braves.
On that same day, a massive fire broke out in the press box of old Fulton County Stadium during batting practice. A few hours later, fire officials concluded that the game could still be safely played, and the show went on…
In the 6th inning of Crime Dog’s first game in a Braves uni, he launched a mammoth 2-run homer. The Braves won that game, and went on to erase a nine-game deficit in the standings to claim its 3rd consecutive National League pennant.
You could say that Crime Dog’s arrival lit a fire under the Braves…literally.

I use high-quality & highly saturated pigments in my products, so staining is possible. It’s always advisable to apply a worthy base coat, especially under darker colored polishes.
