1976 Topps Cincinnati Reds Teams Set – Card #320 – Joe Morgan

Ah, my favorite member of ‘The Big Red Machine’.

Joe Morgan was a baseball superstar during the 1970’s.  A 2-time MVP and 10-time All-star, Joe Morgan brought his well-rounded game to the Reds for 8 seasons.

A slick fielder, Morgan used his range and speed to garner 5 consecutive Gold Glove awards between 1973-1977.

Offensively, Morgan was awesome.  A threat at the plate, and on the base paths, he was the perfect complement to a Reds team that was full of potent offensive talent.  Morgan collected 2,517 hits during his career and has a lifetime batting average of .271.  Other notable offensive stats include his 1,650 runs scored, 689 stolen bases, 268 home runs, and 1,133 RBI.

Morgan was a member of both the 1975 and 1976 World Series championship winning Reds teams.  In those 2 match-ups, he hit .286 while collecting 12 hits and scoring 7 runs.

Joe Morgan was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1990.
