Finally, I Have Landed A ‘Holy Grail’ Baseball Card – The 1989 Upper Deck, Ken Griffey Jr. Rookie Card!!!
That’s right, baby, I have finally brought one home.
One of the most iconic, and collected, baseball cards of all-time – the 1989 Upper Deck, Ken Griffey Jr. rookie baseball card.
Check it out:
I’ve seen it a million times on the web, and in print, but it has been more than 20 years since I have held one in my hands and called one my own.
But, things have changed – and I am now a proud owner if this fantastic, and historic, baseball card.
Back when the 1989 Upper Deck set debuted, this card was HOT! As an avid collector, I built the full set so I was able to nab one Griffey that way. And over time, I know that I ha at least 2 more in my collection.
But, that was a long time ago and those cards are unfortunately long gone.
Of all of the cards that I got rid of when I trimmed down my collection from tens of thousands to less than fifty, and of the cards that were spared, this is definitely one that I welcome back with open arms!!
