Reggie Jackson 2001 Upper Deck Legends Of New York – “Yankees Win Thanks To Jackson’s Three Home Runs”
I will never tire seeing baseball cards that honor Reggie Jackson’s historic World Series game in 1977. That single game cemented Jackson’s legacy as a clutch performer, and even more notable, a winner!
This card comes from the 2001 Upper Deck ‘Legends Of New York’ set. And it features the headline: Yankees Win Thanks To Jackson’s Three Home Runs.
The card was done in a great, newspaper-styled theme, and it looks fantastic!!
Check it out:
So far, this is my favorite ‘New’ card for my Reggie Jackson collection since officially declaring myself a Jackson collector.

Giancarlo Stanton 2010 Topps ‘Peak Performance’
I’ve always liked the ‘Peak Performance’ baseball card design. But prior to picking up this card of Stanton for my new player collection of his cards, it had only been Joe Morgan that I had picked up.
Here is the Stanton card:
I like it!
I really like the design, and the top and bottom Red banners really tie the card together very well. I also love the old Marlins logo so it is always nice to find it featured on a card.
A very nice addition to my Giancarlo Stanton PC!!!

1979 HEADLINE: Carl Yastrzemski Joins The ‘3000 Hits Club’
On this day in 1979 Carl Yastrzemski collected hit #3000 of his amazing baseball career!!!
On the road and taking on the New York Yankees in front of 34,000+ Yankee fans, Carl Yastrzemski and the Boston Red Sox made this game a memorable one. Winning easily 9-2 against their divisional foes, ‘Yaz’ and the Red Sox enjoyed both team and individual success on this historic day.
In the bottom of the 8th inning, ‘Yaz’ connected for a single off of Yankees’ pitcher Jim Beattie. Hit #3,000 was 19 years in the making, but Carl Yastrzemksi’s dedication to the game and the art of hitting certainly helped earn him a spot in this legendary club.

SIGNING RESULTS: Former Rookie Of The Year & Cardinals All-Star Vince Coleman!!!!
I was so excited when I found out about this signing. And the price was simply too good for me to pass up!!
Adding a Vince Coleman signed baseball to my collection has been on my radar for quite some time. He was one of the most dynamic stars of the 1980’s and the start to his major league career was on par if not better than many of the guys that debuted in the same time frame.
Upon entering the league, Coleman stole the show. Literally. He stole more bases in the first three seasons of his major league career than any player in the history of the sport – and he was instantly loved in St. Louis.
His autograph is a bit large, and it takes up quite a bit of space, but as soon as I found out about this autograph signing, I leaped at the chance to get a ball done for my collection.
Here are the results:
I told you it was a big signature, so I expected the inscription to be placed right where it was. It’s too bad that the inscription is not shown when in a case on my desk, but I know it is there and that works for me!!
The next Cardinals player on my list?? #51, the NL MVP from the 1985 season – Willie McGee!! Wish me luck!!!
