#352 - Joe Morgan
What a card: This is Joe Morgan's final Topps card (along with the record-breaker card). He retired after the 1984 season, yet was given a card in the set.
My observation on the front: Donut cameo!
More opinion from me: Well other than the fact that Morgan still pisses me off, this is a pretty nice farewell photo for Morgan. He's taking his bat (and donut) and going home. See you in the broadcast booth, losers.
Something you might know: Morgan won back-to-back MVP awards in 1975 and 1976 to become the seventh of the 13 players who have won back-to-back MVP honors.
Something you might not know: Morgan played dominoes during his baseball career because he thought the same attributes needed to succeed in dominoes -- concentration and memory -- were important in baseball, too.
My observation on the back: Complete career stats!
The blog wants to speak now: Been stuck on the Pop Culture tab lately. It's updated again.
