Murphy was actually closer than I thought, for some reason I was thinking he was in the low 300s.

I think Eddie Matthews must be one of the least remembered superstars in history.

I agree. He played on a team that moved and also had to compete with Hank Aaron. Playing for a now defunct team hurts you and playing with one of the greatest ever hurts the legacy anymore. If you're forgotten by the "home" fans you're going to be forgotten by the general public as well.

It's too bad he was great. Maybe the best 3rd baseman ever.

It wasn't only Aaron, he played in an era of superstars. Mays, Musial, Aaron, Robinson, Banks, and Snider were all in their peaks during Mathews' run. He is alot like Gil Hodges, tremendous player that was outshone by some immortal players.
