Reggie Jackson 2-Card Lot From The 2001 Upper Deck World Series Highlights Set

Reggie Jackson 2-Card Lot From The 2001 Upper Deck World Series Highlights Set

I don’t know many players in major league history competed in five and won all five World Series that they competed in.  But I do know that Reggie Jackson did that!!!

It’s nice to see Reggie is this World Series Highlights set issued by Upper Deck in 2001.  It’s even nicer to see Reggie being shown in both uniforms in which he won World Series rings. 

Here are the two cards:

And for the record, Reggie hit .357 in 27 World Series games.  He collected 35 hits in those games and was responsible for driving in 24 runs and scoring 21 times.

It has been slow going with my Billy Williams collection. 

And while I will not chalk it up to losing interest in finishing this player collection, I think that with all of the newly released cards, I simply have other players on my mind more often.

But, I will finish this set.  It was one of the first goals that I set before myself when this blog was started in August, 2008.

This is the 1964 Topps Chicago Cubs team card.  I believe that Williams is sitting in the second row, second from the left.

Alan Trammell 1990 Bowman

While not the best looking baseball card to be issued in 1990, the 1990 Bowman set was a big upgrade from the 1989 version.  At least in my opinion…

The ’89 set featured a lot of zoomed-in, portrait style photography.

At least the 1990 set offered us more variety and some in-game action!!

Did You Know…

The youngest pitcher to capture 300 wins was Kid Nichols.  On July 7, 1900, Kid Nichols won his 300th game just two months before his 31st birthday.  Nichols finished his major league career with 361 wins.
