Baseball Card Show Purchase #8 – 1971 Topps Reggie Jackson – YES!! YES!! YES!!!
Yes, that is a 1971 Topps Reggie Jackson card in the title of this post.
And no, this is no re-print.
It is the real deal.
Have a look:
I don’t care that the corners are a tad bit rounded.
And I don’t even care that there is a piece of clear tape running across the top of the card right above the name ‘Athletics’.
This is a REGGIE JACKSON 1971 TOPPS BASEBALL CARD!!!
And I have wanted one for a very, very long time.
And now, the best part…
I paid just $1.00 for it.
I found it in a $1 bargain bin and immediately set it to the side. I told the dealer that someone must have put it in the box by mistake and he stated, ‘Nope, it’s a buck’.
Without any hesitation, I bought it. I don’t care about the condition. I don’t care about the piece of tape. I have always thought that this was a very cool card and never for a minute did I think that I would own one – and pay just $1.00…
