Became a fan of Reggie about 30 years ago seeing an interview of him explaining that early 1970s pick ups where the Best Buy in vintage automobiles - With all the talk about greatness I would be more in “awe” meeting him than a Barry Bonds
Thanks for posting

The Reggie doc on Netflix last year was fantastic. I was a Reggie fan as a kid growing up but only really knew surface level stuff about him. He always seemed a personality type that was on one level very outgoing and outspoken, but at the same time, inaccessible to the general public.

I think that doc made him much more accessible in understanding why he was, the way he was.

Reggie mentioned Lee Meyers at the very end, who was a very interesting character even though he never made it to the Majors. Meyers was married to blonde bombshell Mamie Van Doren for a short time, when he was trying to make the Cubs in 1966 during spring training it was Leo Durocher (I think) who told the media that Meyers was about to inherit millions of dollars which Meyers didn’t like at all because he wanted to keep that secret, he played with Reggie Jackson in Birmingham in 1967 like Reggie mentioned, and he died in a car wreck in 1972 after he had given up professional baseball.

Would you happen to have a relative with a 1966 Pro’s Pizza Ernie Banks available?

Hahahaha.

Yes, it's right next to the Mathewson Police Gazette supplement that I've been looking for and he sent me a PM because his dad happens to have one...

Bye bye, Cliford


Thank you Leon

I saw Jackson's interview Thursday before the game, and I could tell he was speaking from his heart and no doubt the truth.

I found myself watching ARod's face when Reggie kept talking about the Hall of Fame.

I also watched the last episode of Ken Goldin's series where he met with Reggie to sell off some of his memorabilia. The sport (mainly the fans) was/were mean, vicious, etc. etc. However with that said, it damn sure didn't hurt him financially by looking at his house, cars, etc. etc.

I also don't think no matter how much money he made, or successful he was, it didn't erase the personal insults he suffered or felt.

Reggie was a much needed dose of reality. Wasn’t just a feel good night about a bunch of men who gutted it outunder bad circumstances. It was about the conduct of a good part of society that treated these men like filthy animals who were not worthy of sitting in the same room with them and eating a meal.

I liked how Finley stood up for Reggie. To his everlasting discredit, Red Auerbach did not do the same for Russell on at least one occasion I have read about.
