Joseph Henry "Joe" Baker (17 July 1940 6 October 2003) was an England international footballer. Born in Liverpool, England, he spent virtually his entire childhood growing up in Motherwell, Scotland. He is notable for being the first player to have played for England without having previously played in the English football league system, and for scoring over 100 goals in both the English and Scottish leagues. His brother Gerry Baker was also a professional footballer; Gerry signed for Hibernian not long after Joe had left Hibs to play for Torino.
