1977 reggie jackson

how great would it have been if topps had issued reggie jackson's 1977 card with him as an oriole instead of airbrushing him into yankees gear, and left the yankees issue for o-pee-chee to address?  pretty great, if  you ask me.  unfortunately, that wasn't the case, so all o-pee-chee could do was slightly adjust the cropping and move the facsimile autograph.  here is jackson's 1977 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:

i think we all know what reggie did in 1977, right?  particularly in the postseason when he earned his 'mr. october' nickname.  let's just move on.

voici à vous, 1977 reggie jackson!
