My Ken Griffey Sr. Player Collection Is Complete!!! YES!!!
Of all of the player collections that I have compiled over the last 4+ years, the one that I have built of Ken Griffey Sr. is the smallest.
And when I say smallest, I am referring to the number of actual cards. Griffey had 15 major brand baseball card releases while wearing his Cincinnati Reds uniform.
And now, I am the proud owner of all 15.
Here is a look at the full collection:
If ‘The Big Red Machine’ was an actual machine than Johnny Bench and George Foster would have been the engine. And Pete Rose and Joe Morgan would have been the wheels. And Tony Perez would have been the chassis. And Ken Griffey would surely have been the spark plugs!!! His ability to get on base and drive opposing pitchers nuts was supreme, especially for a young player.
I am thrilled to have built a collection that features each and every major-brand card of Griffey from his time with the Reds. And while there are just 15 cards in the set, I will still follow suit and show off my ‘Fab Five’ starting next Monday.
Stay tuned. And enjoy!
