2005 Topps Pristine Legends - Reggie Jackson

Friend of the blog, Brian, from 30-Year Old Cardboard sent over a few cards. When I opened the package I expected some Diamondbacks from the 2012 Topps Update set. There were some great D-Backs in there but it was this card that really blew me away.

Brian picked up this Reggie Jackson card for himself over a year ago. I commented on his post saying how much I liked it. I graduated from Arizona State and had never seen this one before. I kind of forgot about that but Brian didn't. He found another copy of it earlier this month at his local card show.

The 2005 Topps Pristine set was great but you don't really see it around much. I only have one or two cards from it myself. I didn't even know this Reggie Jackson ASU card existed until Brian's post.

Thanks, Brian! This card is instantly one of my favorites.
