1982 reggie jackson all-star

thanks to his departure from the bronx, reggie jackson had three variations in the 1982 o-pee-chee set. here's the third one to be featured on oh my o-pee-chee!, his 1982 o-pee-chee all-star card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
reggie had a ton of career highlights, and he accomplished a couple more items in 1982 that could be added to the back of this card. first, he again tied for the american league lead in home runs with 39. then, he hit his 18th career postseason home run to tie mickey mantle for the major league record in 1982 (since broken by manny ramirez, bernie williams, and even derek jeter thanks to additional playoff rounds). not a bad return for mr. autry, although a pennant would have been nice.

voici à vous, 1982 reggie jackson all-star!
