Wait A Minute, Reggie Jackson Was A Seattle Mariner???

Reggie 1 Reggie 2

Interesting, huh??

The story goes like this – During the 1979 MLB All-Star Game photo shoot, Reggie had yet to receive his Yankees uniform.  So, he donned a Mariners uniform during the pre-game festivities while his correct uniform was in transit to him.

And yes, the Yankees uniform arrived in time for the game’s official start.

**Hat-Tip to loyal ’30-YOC’ reader Matt for sharing this very cool story with me.  Thanks Bud!
