Joan Jett

I come across this image of Joan Jett with a baseball bat on her shoulder a few times while bumping around the 'net but, for some reason, it never dawned on me to make a card using the picture until recently I saw it captioned with the year it was taken, which was 1977.  Light bulb moment, 1977 Topps baseball.

Upon doing a little research on Joan Jett I found out she's a huge Baltimore Orioles fan which is something I didn't know prior and lent well to the factoid area on the reverse on the '77 Topps card back design.

  1. She's sung the anthem at Orioles home games on several occasions. I can remember her dropping by the broadcast booth once when Mel Proctor and John Lowenstein were their crew. Brother Low was quite taken with her.
