Joe Morgan 1983 Topps Traded
Traded and Updated sets were all the rage when I was a teenage baseball card collector. It allowed us to score rookie cards of the guys that didn’t make team rosters on Opening Day, and it also gave us the chance to grab cards of guys that had been traded to new teams during the early part of the baseball season.
The base card of Morgan from the 1983 Topps set features him in his Giants’ uniform.
But Morgan did not suit up for the Giants during the 1983 season, he played for the Phillies. And now it is nice to have a card that represents that very fact!

At the age of 45, Carlton Fisk began the 1993 season for the Chicago White Sox with a bang by hitting a solo homer in his first at-bat on April 7 against Minnesota’s Jim Deshaies. Fisk appeared in 25 more games and batted 50 more times, getting just 9 more hits, all singles, and was released on June 28 shortly after breaking Bob Boone’s record for most games played at catcher.
