Reggie Jackson 2010 Topps – 1974 MLB All-Star Game Commemorative Patch

Reggie Jackson 2010 Topps – 1974 MLB All-Star Game Commemorative Patch

I thought that this card would be a fun way to close out my 31-day celebration of Mr. October, Reggie Jackson.

The card is sweet, and it features a very classic and plain design that is highlighted by a vintage photo and manufactured patch.

Have a look:

This one is a very nice addition to my collection that honors Reggie.

But, I am a bit puzzled by the card too.

The moment that the card is celebrating is the 1974 MLB All-Star.  Sure, Reggie played in the game but he was far from the star on that day.  In three at-bats, Reggie went hitless while striking out twice.  It was Steve Garvey that helped the NL to a 7-2 victory.

I’ve looked at other box scores of Reggie’s other All-Star game appearances, and he certainly had better ones than the one in 1974.

So, did Topps simply have an overabundance of 1974 All-Star Game patches?  Could be.

The card leaves me happy to be the owner, but definitely confused as well…

Any thoughts?
