Joe Morgan

Joe Morgan, the Hall of Fame second baseman, played 12 seasons wearing what we now know as the Ultimate Baseball Look during the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform. Pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants, real athletic wear. From 1972-79 with the Cincinnati Reds, the Big Red Machine. 1980 with the Houston Astros. 1981 & 1982 with the San Francisco Giants, and finally after a season with the Phillies, 1984 with the Oakland A's. The people today realize now that baseball uniforms from the 1970s and 1980s were much more advanced than the uniforms that are worn now.
