Card of the Day - 2014 Topps Five Star : Reggie Jackson Base Autograph (24/50)

Another long pursuit to reacquire an autograph for the collection has finally come to a finish with the acquisition of this 1978 Dodger tormentor, one Reggie Jackson.

Even though Reggie was a thorn in the Dodger's side for years I wanted to have his autograph in my collection and even though he played for multiple teams during his career the only uniform for me to have him in was the Yankees. Hate the team but respect the history.

The Five Star brand seemed to have the most cards to chose from when it came to Reggie's autograph but like always I kept losing out on eBay auctions. What made it even "funnier" was that I wasn't just losing out on the 2014 issue but the 2013 one as well. Two different years with the same result each time. Most losses were due to losing out on traditional auctions as the BIN auctions had too high of a starting asking price to play the negotiating game with them. Finally though a seller had this one up with a reasonable price and a best offer option. Sent him a much lower than book offer and within a few hours he accepted.

Glad to finally add Reggie back to the collection. One reacquisition pursuit down with many, many more to go,


Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
