Joe Morgan 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Sliding Stars’
Of all of the base cards that I have from the 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen set, there is just one that I am still seeking – Joe Morgan.
And while that hun has yielding nothing for me just yet, I was able to recently grab the card of Morgan from the ‘Sliding Stars’ subset from the same 2013 GQ release.
Here is the card:
If you know me and my passion for the stars of this sport, than you know that I really value what Joe Morgan brought to the game. His style of play is exactly what I love about this game – and I am always excited to see his name featured on new checklists.
This card captures a very solid part of Morgan’s game – base running. Morgan stole 689 bases during his major league career – good for 11th on the all-time list. He also scored 1,650 runs during his playing days, including eight seasons of at least 100 runs or more.
Go Get ‘Em Joe!!!
