Oriole Player Postcards Reggie Jackson


Reggie Jackson played one year with the Orioles. He was a Bird in 1976 between his much more publicized stints in Oakland and New York. He missed the month of April but managed to finish with 27 homers. The O's finished 2nd to the Yanks that year but never were really a threat and they were 10 plus games back when the season ended.

Pictures of Jackson in Oriole garb are uncommon. Seeing him in the hideous orange jersey/orange cap combo is even more uncommon. I sent him one of these cards to sign c/o the Yankees a few years later, maybe '79 or so. Needless to say I never got it back.
