Throwback Tuesday

Simply put, this is one of my favorite cards.

My favorite player in a throwback uni?  Yes please.  The Bucs didn't wear many throwback uniforms while Jack was with the team, so for one of these to show up on a piece of cardboard is a pleasant surprise.

I've talked endlessly about my love for the 70's mix and match jerseys.  And the gold on gold combo is hard to beat.  I really like the slightly baggy look to the jersey (it's certainly more flattering than the skin tight unis that were worn back in the day).

And of course for all the Jack Wilson cards I have, the parallel version to this beauty has continually avoided me over the past decade.  I don't think I've ever seen a copy for sale in person or online.

But one of these days, I'll snag one.  And then it will be the grandest throwback card of the  all!
