Baseball Card Show Purchase #5 – Reggie Jackson 2005 Fleer Official Boxscore ‘Classic Clippings’

Baseball Card Show Purchase #5 – Reggie Jackson 2005 Fleer Official Boxscore ‘Classic Clippings’

I am always on the look out for new Reggie Jackson baseball cards for my collection.  It is kind of an unwritten rule for me – along with Andre Dawson, Fergie Jenkins, Jim Palmer, Brooks Robinson, and Joe Morgan…

I didn’t get quantity this time, but I did land a card that I have never seen before.

And it is pretty cool – so cool in fact that I need to show you the front and the back.

Here we go:

Front:

Back:

The card comes from the 2005 Fleer subset tagged as ‘Official Boxscore’.  I had never seen one of these before, but I have to say that I love the theme.

This specific card pays homage to Reggie’s incredible performance in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The card is also serial numbered to 1977 which I find to be pretty cool.  The one that I scooped up is 1313/1977.

I am immediately intrigued by this set!!!

Reggie Jackson Clark Candy Bar – 3 Card Set

Reggie Jackson Clark Candy Bar – 3 Card Set

I have a Reggie Jackson Clark candy bar.  It is more than twenty years old and it rests in the back of my refrigerator. 

I bought the bar more than a year ago on Ebay.  I have no idea what I am going to do with it.  For the time being, I am treating it like a collectible.

Inside the wrapper with the bar is a special baseball card, issued by Upper Deck.  Actually, there are three different cards to collect – but you only get one with each bar.

The goal was to collect all three – pretty genius move by Upper Deck if you ask me.  Kind of following the Kellogg’s and Drakes plan of attack, I guess.

While I have no clue as to which card rests inside of my sealed Reggie bar, I now know what all three cards look like.

Because I bought the full set.

Here it is:

Card #1

Card #2

Card #3

I like the look, and smell of these baseball cards.  I just don’t understand why they were numbered in this order.  Obviously card number two offers up the oldest image of Reggie from his early days in Oakland. 

In my opinion the cards should have been numbered in the order of the year that the photo was taken – but I am probably just looking too deeply into it…

Still, the set looks fantastic – the pictures are bright and sharp!

Enjoy.

It’s Halloween, Have Yourself A Reggie Bar. I Know That I Will!!!!

It’s Halloween, Have Yourself A Reggie Bar.  I Know That I Will!!!!

Tonight is a fun night – and for me it is all about the kids.

Almost, all about the kids…

You see, for the longest time, I wanted to try a Reggie bar.  Made famous during his playing days with the Yankees, the Reggie bar was a phenomenal promotion back in the 1970’s – that teamed Reggie Jackson and a chocolate and peanut candy bar.

Well, almost 15 years later, Clark and Upper Deck teamed up in 1993 to re-issue the Reggie bar and I have finally scored one for myself – thanks to Ebay!!

Paying a lot more than I would for anything on the shelf at the local gas station, this candy bar will remain in my memorabilia collection for now.  But if I get really hungry one of these nights, it may take a lot of willpower to keep it wrapped…

Happy Halloween everybody!!!

You Have No Idea How Close I Am To Doing This…

Seriously.  While there are a million things out there that seem to be a better investment of my $11.00, I am not sure that any will be as enjoyable…

Your thoughts?  Should I take the plunge or pass???  I like chocolate bars.  And while peanut butter and roasted peanuts is not my first choice when staring through the glass of a vending machine, it’s not my last one either.

Hmmm…  Decisions, decisions.

Reggie Bar

Reggie Jackson Has More Nuts Than The Competition…

There have been several players in sports to have a candy bar named after them. 

No story may be more entertaining then when Reggie’s was released to the public.  On Opening Day at Yankee Stadium, all Yankee fans were treated to the new candy bar of their most valuable slugger.  Unfortunately when Reggie stepped up to the plate, the field was quickly covered in candy bars by the fans.  To top it off, Reggie even hit a home run in that same game…

The candy bar itself was not a hit.  Noted for having an odd shape with too much caramel and peanuts, the bar never became the smash that Reggie had hoped for.

This just goes to show you that Reggie Jackson has more nuts than the competition…
