Nicknamed "Little Joe" for his diminutive 5'7" stature, Morgan was a standout at Castlemont High School before being signed by the Houston Colt .45's as an amateur free agent in 1962. Early in his career, he had trouble with his swing because he kept his back elbow down too low. Teammate Nellie Fox suggested to Joe that while at the plate he should flap his back arm like a chicken to keep his elbow up. Morgan followed the advice, and his flapping arm became a familiar sight to baseball fans. On the left front tail of is the "Wilson" manufacturer's size 40 tag with wash instructions. Below that is a “83 2” embroidered strip tag. On the inside back collar is a strip tag with "Morgan" embroidered on it. On the left breast is the Phillies "P" logo. On the right breast and on the back is the player number "8". Across the back is the player name "MORGAN" on a powder blue name plate. All lettering and numbering is done in burgundy on white tackle twill. On the left sleeve is the official "1983 Phillies" logo patch. Autographed in collar in black marker with “GAMER!” added and rates a 9. The jersey shows good game-use and appears to have no alterations of any kind. The autograph is accompanied by a LOA from JSA. Includes LOA from Joe Morgan.
