Hi, thanks for visiting my listing.I met Mr. Morgan in 1998 at a sports card and memorabilia convention where he signed this very special baseball bat for me. Morgan, the legendary Reds (and Astros!) second baseman who is renowned as one of the key members of the "Big Red Machine" dynasty, signed his name on this old-fashioned style, genuine Louisville Slugger "Powerized" Joe Morgan model bat (like Joe actually used)a thick blue sharpie in a very legible and nice fashion (it really is a quality example of his signature). But the key difference here between this baseball and others is the very special inscription that I asked him to include! In addition to his name, Joe wrote an inscription of one of his most important accomplishments:"MVP 75-76", referring to his incredible back-to-back National League MVP awards!Nice!!! Morgan is still considered to be one of the bestall-around players in both Reds and baseball history; now you can own a piece of that legacy, which still lives on to this day.
The signature is guaranteed to be authentic and comes with a COA (Certificate of Authenticity) from Signature Verification Systems (SVS). Again, I met Joe and had him sign this baseball, so I can also personally vouch for its authenticity. The bat is in excellent condition, with no noticeable cosmetic flaws.
If you have any questions, please let me know. And if you're interested in other old-school baseball memorabilia items, I also have some other classic items available now- so definitely take a look at those (including a Big Red Machine baseball, a Pete Rose baseball, 3000 Hit Club Wheaties box, and a very rare Sandy Koufax signed felt batting helmet!). Remember, this signed Joe Morgan bat would be the perfect gift for the die-hard Reds fan in your life. Thanks!
