    Description

    1980 Joe Morgan Game Worn Houston Astros Jersey. Joe Morgan made every team he played for better, using his five-tool skill set to lead three different franchises (Reds, Astros, and Phillies) to seven NLCS and four World Series. At just 5-7 150, he dominated the game, winning back-to-back NL MVP awards and back-to-back World Series as the undisputed leader of The Big Red Machine. Little Joe was also a ten-time All-Star and five-time Gold Glove recipient.

    The jersey on offer here dates from his return to Houston in 1980. Home white knit pullover sports the famed "rainbow style", with "Astros" and a star screened on the front and "Morgan 8" sewn-on the verso, all in midnight navy blue. This exemplar exhibits nice even wear, which has left the fabric and identifiers in a soft and pliable state. Best of all is the customized tail, which was trimmed and hemmed to accommodate Joe's dimensions, leaving the Medalist-Sand Knit Astros "exclusive" tag only partially visible. A hot 1980's knit with a Hall of Fame pedigree whose popularity and value will only grow in the coming years. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
