Reggie Jackson 2010 Topps ‘The Cards Your Mom Threw Out’ – 1978 Topps Reprint
While I absolutely prefer my baseball cards, especially the vintage ones, feature action images, there are times when the card features a neat portrait.
And this card of Reginald Martinez Jackson fits the bill.
Have a look:
This card is from the popular 2010 ‘Cards Your Mom Threw Out’ subset. It features Reggie’s 1978 Topps card on the front, and it is just spewing with 1970’s style – from the flap-less helmet to the afro hairstyle to the butterfly collar to the bushy mustache – this image screams 1970’s.
And I love it!!
I will say, though, that the faux-autograph of Reggie’s that is printed on the card is a horrible look. It does not look anything like his true, and very neat, signature. The auto is a fail, for sure.
