Ken Griffey Jr. Jersey

I’ve mentioned before that I have never liked Ken Griffey Jr. But he was a legendary player, and a no-brainer HOFer. Since he did play those 41 games in a Sox uniform, I’m going to collect the guy.

The Griffey signing with Tristar/Mill Creek wasn’t cheap, especially for premium items. And getting a licensed Griffey Sox jersey wasn’t cheap either. This item is definitely one of the most expensive in my collection. Maybe the second most expensive, in terms of what I paid to get it signed. The only item that I know I paid more for is the Michael Jordan 20×24 UDA photo. But I think it’s worth it.

Ken Griffey Jr. Cards

Ken Griffey Jr. recently did a couple of signings. He did a heavily publicized signing with the fine folks at Mill Creek Sports, in conjunction with Tristar. I did send them an item, look out for that post soon. But there was also a cards only signing with Tom Orr. It was a much better price than the other signing, so I sent in a couple of cards.

I finally got his iconic 1989 Upper Deck rookie card signed. I also got a second 2009 Upper Deck card signed that I didn’t know existed until recently. Both turned out perfectly.

I’m thinking about doing some kind of a display piece with the 89 UD Griffey and 90 Leaf Frank Thomas. Those are without a doubt the two most iconic cards from my childhood, and it’d be cool to do something with them.
