1976 Topps #500 Reggie Jackson - PSA 10 GEM MINT - Highest Graded Example!
Presented here is a breathtaking PSA 10 GEM MINT 1976 Topps #500 Reggie Jackson marvel that appears as if it was just pulled from a '76 Topps wax pack. Of the 1,700+ PSA encapsulated Jackson subjects, a meager 0.6% have managed to achieve this hallowed assessment, proudly standing tall with only nine other specimens as the "best of the rest!" Dubbed "Mr. October", Reggie Jackson's nickname was well-earned, with the slugging Hall of Famer dominating the playoffs and Fall Classic equal to or better than any player who ever graced a baseball diamond. Leading both the Oakland Athletics and New York Yankees to five World Championships during the 1970s, his unparalleled clutch hitting was a key factor for many of those titles, especially in 1977 when he walloped three home runs on three consecutive pitches in the Game #6 clincher at Yankee Stadium.
He ended his outstanding 21-year career with a staggering 563 round-trippers and 14 All-Star game appearances, with his monstrous home run in the 1971 All-Star game at Detroit's Briggs Field towering over the right field roof and hitting a light transformer! That said, this grand offering resides as the perfect testament for all of Jackson's world-class feats, and finding a virtual perfectly centered subject such as this supreme offering is synonymous to finding a needle in a haystack. This immaculate-like example portrays a breathtaking "Mr. October" batting pose that is situated in almost perfect 50/50 fashion between four blinding white borders. Impeccable surfaces, razor sharp corner tips, crystal-clear clarity and sparkling yellow/green hues complete this mesmerizing gem that has stubbornly defied 46-years of potential wear.
