Bo Jackson?

SDS

Has Bo Jackson ever been in this game? I would love to see him on my team

SDS

Don't think he has, not as a legend anyways. I would love a bo Jackson card. Was always a huge bo fan when he played both sports

SDS

He would be cool, but let's be honest. He was a much better football player...

He was but they do whatever they want with cards anyways so it wouldn't be a big deal. Supe him up good, a little better contact version than Gallo with speed and cannon arm.

SDS

He would be awesome, so would a Deion Sanders card, maybe based on 1992 with the Braves. He hit over .300 and lead the league in triples in less than 100 games.

SDS

Huge Bo fan. He's the reason I like the Raiders when I was a kid.

Be awesome if he was in the game. The bat breaking animation over his leg would be awesome.

SDS

Bo knows..........

SDS

Bo's problem is that all his Topps cards are boring and terrible.






If there's ever a Bo card, it needs to be this:

He wasn't a great but good for 20 Hr and 80 RBI and he played the most 130 games in a full season..Pretty sure he averaged like 112 games. Mid 250, 260 average but no slouch. Legendary footballer and an all time great if that injury doesn't happen. Let's not make him put to be Michael Jordan at baseball though bro.

SDS

We really need that 40 contact, 85 power. Highlight player but not a great player. He’s fine where he is…..in Madden.

Oh I'm fully aware of what he was as both. I never made him out to be a failure. Just that he was much better at football.

He was a 111 OPS+ hitter. Slightly above average.
Struck out 32% of the time when hitters weren't striking out like today... Didn't walk much all that much to make up for it either. And though he was obviously incredibly explosive and fast, he wasn't a particularly smart fielder either. Had he focused on only baseball he might have been a superstar in this sport.. but he was only because he did both sports in this case.

He would also have speed and a cannon arm.

In my opinion he would be a good fun low diamond early in game cycle card, but that's it.

Dude had at least four seasons w/ over 20 homeruns and 50 RBI only playing half the season. His stats would be way higher if he had played an entire season. Additionally, even after his hip injury he had two seasons w/ 10+ homeruns and 40 RBI. I would love to see this card in the game along w/ Roy and Dion.

He was but he had a better baseball career lol. Regardless to me, greatest athlete of all time. Too bad he got hurt

Agreed his Score cards are all better.

SDS

He slugged over .500 once and he did that in over 500 at bats, not a half season. All he would have done in more at bats is set the all time strikeout record 20 years earlier than Mark Reynolds.

SDS

Bo was definitely better than Deion Sanders in Baseball. Deion had one good year and besides leading the league in triples, his other numbers weren't that good at all. I compare him to Billy Hamilton, extremely fast and nothing else.
