Reggie Jackson 2002 Upper Deck Piece Of History ‘Tape Measure Heroes’
Reggie could mash home runs with the best of them. And he was not just a guy that could barely get the ball out of the park.
He was a crusher!
This card from the 2002 Upper Deck subset tagged as “Tape Measure Heroes’ is pretty neat. The left-side border of the card features a running tape measure that fits very well with the theme of the card.
Here it is:
With the size of ballparks today versus how they were built when Reggie was starring with the A’s, Yankees, Orioles, and Angels, I wonder how many home runs a guy of Reggie’s size and power could deliver in today’s sport.
Something tells me that he would not be far off of his career tally of 563.
