Joe Morgan 2005 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites

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.

Did You Know…

Johnny Mize is the only player with a 50-homer season who had more home runs than strikeouts.  In 1947 with the New York Giants, MIze hit 52 home runs and fanned just 42 times in 586 at-bats.

Happy Birthday Roberto Alomar!!

Roberto Alomar celebrates his 43rd birthday today!

Roberto Alomar has a lot to be thankful for as he celebrates his birthday today…

He had a fantastic career that was peppered with tons of individual and team success that includes winning World Series championships.

But today, things are a bit more special for Alomar.  He is the newest elected member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, and as a headliner going into Cooperstown this summer, Alomar can now be celebrated alongside the greatest baseball players of all-time!

Congratulations again Robby.  And Happy Birthday!!!
