earlier today i showed the 'final tribute' cards of reggie smith. i figured i would do the same for the 'other' reggie. reggie jackson was the better known of the two players, thanks in large part to his time in new york and his success on the national stage as both a yankee and a member of the oakland a's. he retired after the 1987 season with 563 home runs and 2584 hits (to go along with a record 2597 strikeouts).
only two of the four major card manufacturers gave reggie some love in their 1988 sets. while topps and donruss passed on mr. october, fleer gave him a card
and, as part of a complete career retrospective, score gave him a similar card
even though he stuck his hip out and interfered in that world series play against the dodgers, reggie jackson deserved his due from the card companies in 1988, and i'm glad that at least fleer and score delivered.
