Reggie Jackson (1987 – Topps #300)

Reginald Martinez “Reggie” Jackson (Mr. October) played in the outfield for 21 years with 5 different teams (Kansas City/Oakland A’s 1967-’75, Baltimore Orioles 1976, New York Yankees 1977-’81, California Angels 1982-’86, and, again, ending with the Oakland Athletics in 1987). Reggie was the A.L. MVP in 1973. He was a 5-time World Series champion (3-times with the A’s, twice with the Yankees) and a 14-time A.L. All-Star. Jackson had the honor of having his uniform number retired in 2 cities, Oakland (#9) and New York (#44). He also was the A.L.home run Champion 4 times. Whenever I think of Reggie Jackson, I see him hitting 3 consecutive homers (each off of a different pitcher) in game 6 of the 1977 World Series. Reggie hit a total of 563 home runs during his career. He was a 1993 inductee, with 93.6% of the vote, into baseball’s Hall Of Fame.
