Ken Griffey Jr. 2012 Topps ‘Blockbusters’
While this event may not have been as historic as it could have been, the occasion was certainly worth the attention.
On February 10, 2000, Ken Griffey Jr. signed to play with the Cincinnati Reds. ‘The Kid’ was coming home. Back to where his dad starred in the majors. Back to where he learned how to play the game. Back to where he hung out in the dugout and locker room with Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, and Tony Perez!!
This card from the 2012 Topps Blockbuster set is a perfect addition to the set. This signing in 2000 was extremely newsworthy.
It’s just too bad that Griffey was unable to put together a string of success with the Reds that matched what he had accomplished in Seattle.
