Hall of Fame Signed Baseball - Joe Morgan

The second Hall of Famer we met (after exchanging our Ralph Kiner tickets) was Joe Morgan.  He was really friendly and pulled Chris to his side of the table for a photo.  He smiled real big when Chris put his arm around him for the photo.
He signed the ball on the sweet spot for the both of us.  My ball is now Tristar authenticated, since Julie (from Things are Funner Here) was nice enough to give me a voucher for authentication.
Morgan is my 72nd Hall of Famer on a ball.  He (born in 1943) played in the majors from 1963 to 1984 for the Colt 45's/Astros, Reds, Giants, Phillies and A's.  He won the World Series twice (1975-76) and won the NL MVP Award both of those years as well.  He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1990 with 81.8% of the vote on his first ballot.

That Chris has a million dollar smile.
