Bo Jackson
Bo Jackson, Topps 1987


In 1986, in just 25 Major League games, Bo Jackson had 4 game winning RBI's. He of course went on to become quite possibly the greatest two-sport athlete in history. He is remembered for two iconic accomplishments:

In the 1989 All Star Game, leading off the bottom of the 1st inning he launched a 480 ft home run off Rick Reuschel that bounced off the hitter's eye in center field. It set the tone for the rest of the game, as he played the thorn in the side of the National League, leading the AL to a 5-3 victory. It was the first time since '57-'58 that the AL won consecutive All Star games.

The other iconic moment in Bo Jackson's career came in his other sport, football. On November 30, 1987 Bo ran for 221 yards and 3 touchdowns. En route to that amazing performance, he barreled over Brian Bosworth, who was considered a premier defensive player at the time. It was probably the most embarrassing moment in the lackluster career of the eccentric Boz.

During his heyday I had Bo Jackson posters all over my wall. My favorite was this one, reflecting his dominance in both football and baseball.
