The 1987 Topps Baseball design is instantly recognizable for its wood-grain borders. Besides that, it’s a very clean design. The box used for the player photo has the top-left corner cut off where a team logo sits inside a circle. The bottom-right corner is similarly cut off giving the rectangular nameplate space to overlap.
Vincent Edward “Bo” Jackson (November 30, 1962-) is a Heisman Trophy winner, former Major League Baseball and National Football League player, and the first two-sport All-Star. Jackson played both baseball and football at Auburn University, and edged out University of Iowa quarterback Chuck Long for the 1985 Heisman Trophy. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took Jackson in the 1st round (1st overall) of the 1986 NFL Draft, but Bo instead joined the Kansas City Royals (1986-1990), who had selected him in the 4th round of the 1986 MLB amateur draft. His best season on the diamond came in 1989, when he was voted to start for the American League All-Star team and earned Most Valuable Player honors.
