1983 joe morgan

lil' joe morgan was traded from the giants to the phillies in december of 1982.  here is his 1983 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
i was happy to get morgan out of the national league west in 1983, especially after he took terry forster deep in 1982 to squash the dodgers' postseason hopes. both the dodgers and morgan made it to the playoffs in 1983, but it was lil' joe going all the way to the world series with the phillies who brought together three members of the big red machine (morgan, pete rose, and tony perez).

after the phillies lost to the orioles, morgan, who had hit a career low .230 during the season, was released.  he eventually wound up in the american league with the a's.

voici à vous, 1983 joe morgan!
