Reggie Jackson was a first ballot Hall of Famer. The superstar slugger in his first two seasons with the Yankees won two World Series rings. He also won the World Series MVP in 1977 after hitting three home runs in the series clincher.
Presented are a pair of game shoes worn while he was with the Yankees. He had a contract with Puma shoes and these black and white that show tremendous wear throughout. With outsoles built for baseball, they have small traction knobs on the ends which have been worn. They are well soiled and show material flaking from age. Because they are not traditional spikes, most likely these were worn in situational preferences or outfield turf purposes. Nonetheless, the provenance seals the purpose as they originated from Dick Dobbins.
According to the Leland’s Paperwork (see photo) these Reggie Jackson shoes were obtained from a party inside the Yankee’s organization from the Dick Dobbins Collection.
