2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #12 – Reggie Jackson, New York Yankees

2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #12 – Reggie Jackson, New York Yankees

I am working on this set because I find it to be the most appealing of the subsets issued by Topps in 2012.

The cards feature bold colors, great images, and a unique horizontal design.

I especially like the ‘Career Day’ theme as it pays homage to some of the greatest individual performances of baseball’s elite players.

Card #12 – Reggie Jackson

CAREER DAY 12

The Career Day – October 18, 1977. Often considered as the greatest offensive performance in World Series history, Reggie Jackson hit three home runs in consecutive at-bats that propelled the New York Yankees to a World Series championship in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series.  Each of the three home runs came on the first pitch Jackson saw from the pitcher.  On the day he was 3-for-3 with 4 runs scored and 5 RBI.  He also was walked one time in the game.

Progress – 12/25
