Million Card Giveaway #6

Tonight I redeemed my 6th card in Topps Million Card Giveaway.  I was the winner of a 1962 Chuck Essegian.  My 2nd card in the lovely wood-grain border set.  Chuck was a utility infielder with the Phillies, Cardinals, Dodgers, Orioles, Athletics, and Indians.  He was a career .255 hitter with 47 HR and 150 RBI.  In the 1959 World Series he set a record with 2 pinch hit home runs against the Chicago White Sox.  He is also one of only two players to appear in both the Rose Bowl and the World Series.  He played running back for Stanford in the 1952 Rose Bowl and played for the Dodgers in the 1959 World Series.

So far my most notable winner has been the 1977 Reggie Jackson.

My M.C.G. Collection also includes a 1987 Paul Molitor, a 1966 Jim Grant, a 1962 Jimmy Piersall, and a 1991 Gene Harris.  Still waiting on that 1952 Mantle!

  1. Wow...that Reggie is by far the best card I've seen pulled from someone I actually know.
