Joe Morgan 2005 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites
Now this card right here is a beauty!!!
With perfect and bold colors, and a great photo showing Joe Morgan preparing to do battle with the pitcher, this card from the 2005 Topps ‘All-Time Fan Favorites’ set is a winner!
In fact, if the original 1975 Topps card of Morgan was as impressive as this updated version, my thoughts about the ’75 set may differ greatly.
