FutureStarrBo Jackson Topps Future Stars Card Value
It was a Friday evening halfway through the 1987 baseball season. As anyone who has been a part of the game knows, that's usually when the real games start. It was the bottom of the ninth inning and the Kansas City Royals were leading 3 to 2, with the bases loaded. James Glasser, the Cincinnati Reds' catcher, stepped in for the out and tossed a ball near the plate that corkscrewed end-over-end and scored the winning run.
Vincent Edward “Bo” Jackson (November 30, 1962-) is a Heisman Trophy winner, former Major League Baseball and National Football League player, and the first two-sport All-Star. Jackson played both baseball and football at Auburn University, and edged out University of Iowa quarterback Chuck Long for the 1985 Heisman Trophy. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took Jackson in the 1st round (1st overall) of the 1986 NFL Draft, but Bo instead joined the Kansas City Royals (1986-1990), who had selected him in the 4th round of the 1986 MLB amateur draft. His best season on the diamond came in 1989, when he was voted to start for the American League All-Star team and earned Most Valuable Player honors. He and Wade Boggs also hit back-to-back home runs, becoming the first duo in All-Star history to lead off their side's first inning with back-to-back homers. In a 1990 game against the Baltimore Orioles, Jackson performed his now-famous "wall run," when he caught a ball a few strides away from the wall. As he caught the ball, he noticed the wall and began to run along it, almost parallel to the ground, and came down with the catch. He finished his career with the Chicago White Sox (1991, 1993) and California Angels (1994). In his eight baseball seasons, Jackson had a .250 batting average, hit 141 home runs, and had 415 RBI. Jackson was also a running back for the Los Angeles Raiders (1987-1990), where he rushed for 2,782 yards with 16 touchdowns. A 1990 post season tackle resulted in a hip injury that ended his football career and shortened his baseball career. In 1989 and 1990, Jackson's name became known beyond just sports fans through the “Bo Knows” Nike advertising campaign to promote a cross-training athletic shoe named in his honor.

When collectors think back to the junk wax era, one of the first sets to jump into minds is 1987 Topps Baseball. Local card shops, department stores and gas stations– to say boxes of these cards were everywhere might be the understatement of the decade. If you were into collecting, you had these wood-bordered beauties somewhere in your binder.
I voted Bo Jackson’s 1987 Fleer Glossy card as the Best Overall Value and here’s why. It is believed that 75,000 Fleer Glossy sets were produced, so higher than the 86 Topps Traded Tiffany (5,000 produced) or the 1987 Topps Tiffany (30,000 sets produced). (Source: bluemonkeysports.com)
