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.
