1982 reggie jackson in action

mr. october, reggie jackson, moved to the west coast in january of 1982. here's his 1982 o-pee-chee in action card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
let's see what we could add to the highlights on the back of reggie's card.

jackson made the all-star team three times during his time in orange county, including 1982. he was the starting right fielder for the american league that year, and went 0 for 1 with a sacrifice fly, driving in the al's only run of the game. he was named to the 1983 team, but did not appear in the game, and in 1984, his final all-star game, he was back in the starting lineup, but went 0 for 2.

as for the championship series, what he did in 1982 (.111 average, 1 home run) and 1986 (.192 with no home runs) wouldn't supplant any of his other accomplishments on the back of this card. and, as we all know, the angels failed to advance to the world series during reggie's tenure in southern california.

voici à vous, 1982 reggie jackson in action!
