Card Of the Week 6/09/08

Card of the Week can't be anybody else tonight. Five other guys have done what Griffey just did: Barry, Hank, Babe, Willie and Sammy. He'll probably pass Sammy by the end of the season. This card is one of the nicest looking ones I have. I'm not sure what set it's from to tell the truth, the copyright date says 2002 but that could mean an Upper Deck 2003 series one. It's an amazingly well designed card though, it looks more like desktop wallpaper or a poster than a trading card. I got this card a few years back from a guy who followed me back to my car after I bought some cards at a flea market. I wasn't too happy about the guy pestering me, it was hot and I wanted to get in my car and out of there. He was talking about small pile of relic cards he had and how he could make me a good deal. I didn't want anything to do with him, that is until I saw this Griffey. Now I would not recommend making a habit of buying cards off some guy following you around in a parking lot but c'mon, look at this card. I got it for ten bucks and the guy didn't even knife me or anything. A great card of a great player. Here's to seeing more homers from The Kid in his career. Many more homers. Like, maybe a hundred and sixty three more would be nice. I think he can do it too.

That is a really nice looking card. Plus you acquired it in an odd way which makes it even better.
