Reggie Jackson 2005 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites – 1968 Topps Design
Topps really did it with this one – I call it PERFECT!!!
Have a look:
Sure, the photo is far from appealing, even Reggie would tell you that.
But Topps gave us a great ‘What If’ with this card.
You see, as most of us ‘older’ guys know, Reggie’s first card was in the 1969 Topps set. But he did spend part of the 1967 and a majority of the 1968 season in the big leagues.
And we now know what his 1968 Topps baseball card might have looked like if he was part of the set.
And Topps did a fantastic job in matching the photo to the time. Reggie looks very young in this picture. And he is not sporting his famous mustache either…
Great work by Topps! I am uber-impressed with this one!!
