#750 Bo Jackson



Why this card is awesome: Because this is the last great card of the 1988 Topps set. It's another beautiful blue Royals card, too. Bo Knows Pretty Much Everything, if I recall correctly. This card was never worth a ton, but it was still a great pull in 1988.

Cool stat: Jackson is among 11 players to have 4 or more seasons with 20 HR and 10 SB among their first 5. Imagine what he could have done if hadn't hurt his hip.

"Vincent Edwards Knows ..." just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Andy, a general suggestion: After you post John Tudor, you should take a poll on the most artistic card of the set. Off the top of my head, I can think of consideration for Wade Boggs, Don Mattingly, Eddie Murray, and Ryne Sandberg.

I forgot to mention how Ben Henry noted back here how this card was a rare case of a second-year player getting a very prestigious card number, as did Barry Bonds in this set.
