A Rare Bird

A rare bird indeed. Reggie Jackson in an Orioles uniform. How many of you knew Reggie played one season with the Orioles? You didn't? That's ok, not a whole lot of people do. (Yes I knew already, thanks!) Reggie was traded to the Orioles from the A's in April 1976. Not happy with being traded to the Orioles, Reggie held out and didn't join the team when the season started.

He still played 134 games and hit 27 home runs, but never fit with the Birds and left via free agency. He signed a $3 million contract with the Yankees for 1977 and the rest is history.

As far as I know, this is the only card with Reggie in an Orioles uniform. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
