2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #12 – Reggie Jackson, New York Yankees
I am working on this set because I find it to be the most appealing of the subsets issued by Topps in 2012.
The cards feature bold colors, great images, and a unique horizontal design.
I especially like the ‘Career Day’ theme as it pays homage to some of the greatest individual performances of baseball’s elite players.
Card #12 – Reggie Jackson
The Career Day – October 18, 1977. Often considered as the greatest offensive performance in World Series history, Reggie Jackson hit three home runs in consecutive at-bats that propelled the New York Yankees to a World Series championship in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series. Each of the three home runs came on the first pitch Jackson saw from the pitcher. On the day he was 3-for-3 with 4 runs scored and 5 RBI. He also was walked one time in the game.
Progress – 12/25
