Reggie Jackson 1979 Topps Baseball Card
As October approached, I knew that I was going to have to buy some card of Reggie if I wanted to continue with my annual praise of ‘Mr. October’ throughout the month.
With that came the goal of bringing home at least one card from the 1970′s. And since I only have a few that go back that far, the task seemed like it would be rather simple.
And then I started to shop. And it got tough. It probably did not help that I started seeking out the 1971 and 1972 Topps base cards first. They were pricey and out of my price range. A man can dream, can’t he….
Anyway, I then flipped my strategy and started with the last issue from the decade – 1979 Topps.
And I found one rather easily. And she is in great shape!!
Have a look:
So, while I won’t abandon the thought of owning a few Reggie Jackson cards from the early part of the 1970′s, it may be a better strategy to work backwards to get myself there.
Wish me luck.
