Taj, my friendly neighborhood UPS delivery man, just made a delivery.  Here is what he brought me!

I sent this bad boy up to the MAB show to have Fisk complete it.  Unfortunately, Fisk used a much thinner Sharpie than Tom did, but it still looks pretty good.  Make sure to click the picture to see a bigger scan.

I have added an excellent 16x20 to the collection.  He is probably my least favorite baseball player ever, but that doesn't change the fact that he will be a first ballot hall of famer, and that means I need him in my collection.  To this point, I have refused to spend the money it would have taken to get a high end item.  I finally found a deal too good to pass up!

I got this bad boy for $85 on eBay.  It is Upper Deck Authenticated and everything!  The unpleasant task of shopping for a high end Ken Griffey Jr. item is complete!
