Reggie Jackson 2013 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions
Honestly, I don’t know what the creative team at Upper Deck is thinking with their ‘Goodwin Champions’ set of cards.
Sure, I get the fact that the cards take you and the player featured ‘off the field’. But, from what I can see, this set offers up a huge helping of ‘WIERD’.
Need proof? Check out the Reggie Jackson card from the set:
Ok, first let me tell you that I only bought this card because I collect Reggie and I try to stay on top of all of his modern releases.
This card is just plain awful. I mean, here was have a shot of Reggie standing on either a roof-top or balcony in NYC. He’s sporting what appears to be a Gold Rolex watch that costs more than most of us probably make in a season, and he is also showing off his well-defined abdominal muscles in a short that exposes his entire mid-section.
Give me Reggie hitting home runs. Give me Reggie in the on-deck circle preparing to go to work. I’ll even take Reggie standing next to one of his muscle cards. But this card does not belong in a set that is geared towards a hobby whose audience is made up of mostly males.
