Reggie Jackson enjoyed a 21-year career in the Major Leagues and finished with 563 round trippers – which was good enough for 14th placement on the all-time career leader board. Nicknamed "Mr October" for his postseason exploits, he led his teams to first place 10 times during his lengthy career. Before a crowd of 6,346, the California Angels faced the lowly Cleveland Indians at home. All of the scoring took place in the 2nd inning with Doug DeCinces leading off the 2nd and shortly after, Jackson connected on a Don Schulze pitch and launched it over the fence for a 2-run home run. Two other runs scored that inning, and the Indians ultimately were bested 4-0.

The Official American League Bobby Brown baseball contains an inscription on an adjacent panel in Jackson's hand which reads, "#513 vs. Cleve, June 20 against Don Schulze 2 run in 1st past Eddie Mathews & Ernie Banks 10th all time, Cal 4 Clev 0." While the inning recalled is incorrect, the sphere is in fantastic condition, and proudly displays incredible contact wear. Included is a letter of provenance from Jackson which boldly reads, "This is the ball I hit for my 513th career home run. I hit the home run in the 1st at bat in the 2nd inning a two run blast. This home run placed me 10th on the all time home run list at the time, June 20, 1985 passing Ernie Banks and Eddie Mathews. The ball was hit over the fence in the bullpen area and retrieved by one of our players. I hope you enjoy it from my personal collection." Based on our research, this is the only post-500 home run ball from Reggie Jackson to appear at major auction. This ball comes with a LOA from Reggie Jackson and LOAs from JSA (Z33319) and PSA/DNA (AC00661) for his signature.
