Dream Do Come True

Ever since I was a kid, Ken Griffey Jr. has been my favorite baseball player.  And now, living in Cincinnati, I can enjoy watching Junior right in my backyard.  Allow me to take you down memory lane and explain how he became my favorite player….

It was 1989, I bought a pack of baseball cards from Toys ‘R Us.  It was a pack of Donruss, and inside was a Ken Griffey Jr. Rookie Card.  It was my first card that was worth more than $1.50.  It was from that day on, Junior was my favorite player.  Not to mention, the shoes I wore of his in Jr. High were amazing.  Sure, the teal and black never matched anything, but who cares!

This brings me to today.  I just purchased the card I have always wanted….A 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. Rookie Card.  Today is a good day.  One of my dreams has come true.  Next stop, watching Lebron James play and writing a book.

    Glad to see you are living out your dream(s). So is this book going to be about seeing LeBron James play basketball??

    Remember our obsession with those baseball cards? And by the way, I checked the prices recently while in a Barnes and Noble, and the value of his rookie cards (and all cards in general) have gone down. I think it’s down to like $40 now, instead of the over $100 around 2000.

    Before long we may all get to see him hit number 600. I wonder if you could even be there when he does?
