1985 Topps Record Breakers – Card #5 – Joe Morgan

Headline – “Morgan’s 265th Homer At Second Base Surpasses Hornsby Standard”

The Story – Oakland, California, June 24, 1984:  A’s Joe Morgan today belted his 265th career homer as a second baseman.  The blow establishes a new major league record surpassing the former mark of 264 homers set by Hall of Famer Rogers Hornsby with Cardinals, Giants, Braves, Cubs, and Browns, 1915 thru 1937.

My Added notes – Morgan retired with 268 career round-trippers.  The current record for home runs in a career by a second baseman is 351 by Jeff Kent, 1992-2008.
