Montreal Expos President John McHale and newly-anointed Expos skipper Dick Williams take Reggie Jackson on a tour of the new Olympic Stadium in the fall of 1976. The Expos wooed Reggie hard, and the superstar slugger might have signed a free agent deal with them if George Steinbrenner hadn’t stepped in — and if Canadian customs officials hadn’t embarrassed Reggie during his visit by announcing that they’d discovered marijuana in his luggage. “I didn’t know it was illegal in this country,” said Jackson, who also claimed that the weed wasn’t his.

Dan Epstein’s new book on the 1976 season is out now!! He started this tumblr to get the word out and he is posting some unreal bicentennial gems.
