Enshrined in Cooperstown in 1993, outspoken slugger Reggie Jackson was honored in perhaps a more elite gathering shortly thereafter at Yankee Stadium’s Monument Park. There, Jackson’s number “44” was retired by the Yankees, making the 1977 World Series hero the 14th so-honored player. Encapsulated and Graded EX 5 by PSA, this full ticket was issued at Yankee Stadium on August 14, 1993 as they paid homage to Jackson. The lone example at its tier with none graded higher, this crisp “Field Box” voucher features printed seating/event details and the team’s stars-and-stripes themed “top hat” logo. Showcasing sharp edges/corners, a strong perforation, vibrant colors and a clean reverse, this one presents even nicer than the technical assessment suggests!
