Joe Morgan 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen ‘Sliding Stars’

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:

VINTAGE MORGAN SLIDING

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!!!
