Offered here is the highest graded Oct. 6, 1975 issue of Sports Illustrated with Reggie Jackson of the Oakland A’s gracing the cover. 


The year was 1975, and the cover of Sports Illustrated showcased a radiant Reggie Jackson, proudly donning the green and gold uniform of the Oakland A's. During the early 1970s, the team established themselves as an unstoppable force, clinching three consecutive World Series titles. Reggie Jackson's unparalleled talent and unwavering dedication were instrumental in these triumphs, solidifying his status as one of the game's true legends.

Eight seasons adorned in the A's uniform saw Jackson etch his name into baseball folklore. With his powerful swing and unmatched athleticism, "Mr. October," as he came to be known, left an indelible mark on the franchise. However, like all great stories, his time in Oakland eventually came to an end. In 1976, Jackson was traded to the Baltimore Orioles, marking a bittersweet transition in his career.

Beyond the confines of the baseball diamond, Reggie Jackson's influence extended far and wide. He epitomized the spirit of the era, symbolizing the changing landscape of sports and pop culture. With his charismatic personality and knack for the dramatic, Jackson captured the attention and adoration of fans across the nation. His larger-than-life persona made him a household name, transcending the boundaries of the sport he so passionately played.

While his time with the Athletics showcased his unparalleled talent, it was with the New York Yankees that Reggie Jackson truly cemented his place among the greats. His arrival in the Big Apple in 1977 ignited a spark that would forever be remembered as one of the most iconic moments in baseball history. A pivotal figure in the Yankees' World Series triumph that year, Jackson's three home runs in the decisive Game 6 earned him the moniker "Mr. October." This nickname, originally bestowed upon him during his time in Oakland, now took on a whole new meaning.
