There are very few baseball cards in any given series with the ability to outshine Micky Mantle's pasteboard but one such card is the 1969 Topps introduction of Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson. When the New York Mets passed on "Mr. October" with the #1 pick of the 1966 draft, the Kansas City Athletics scooped up Jackson at #2. At first, it seemed as though Reggie might be a bust, recording just one home run with 46 strikeouts in 118 at-bats for a .178 batting average in a mid-season call-up. Two years later with the team relocated to Oakland, fans were singing his praises when he posted 47 round-trippers and drove in 118 runs while the Mets regretted the selection of catcher Steve Chilcutt. The offered card is pretty close to perfectly centered with central image color that is deep and bold, a stunning combination of blues and greens that captivate the senses. Each of the four corners is exact, all qualified as MINT by PSA specifications while the surface is shimmering with a stunning layer of gloss that encompasses the entire card and reverse that is splendid with an uncommonly bold salmon tint that is chip-free along the perimeter. Well over 7,000 have been graded and just one has graded higher.
