Thanks to some Sportlots shenanigans, among the stacks and stacks of fresh, new Reds spilling off of my card desk are 25 Griffeys. Huzzah! I mean, we ain't talking on-card auto/bat relic/#'d out of 25 mojo here or anything. But base Griffeys still trump most everything else. I closed out a lot of team sets with these. Let's do it.
An Ultra base and Bowman base. 2005 and 2004, respectively. Griffey is celebrating his 50,000th curtain call, I believe. We also have two from 2004 Bazooka base. One of these is a variation. I don't know which one as I believe they are equally populated.
2003 Upper Deck vintage (via 1965 Topps), an awkward 2003 Upper Deck Play Ball, 2001 Upper Deck Pros and Prospects, 2004 SP Authentic. Sweet, sweet, sweet, and sweet.
2004 Donruss Playoff Honors, 2004 Playoff Prestige, and two from 2002 Donruss Originals. Standard Griffey is good Griffey.
2005 Topps Cracker Jack and 2004 Donruss. The Donruss is purty.
2002 Donrus Super Estrellas (Peace), 2001 Upper Deck Victory Team Checklist (with Steve Parris, who looks like he's just about fed up with press-photo-day), 2004 Donruss Leather and Lumber (whose design I enjoy), and a shiny 2000 Upper Deck HoloGrFX (yes, that's the official spelling/capitalization).
2005 Leaf, 2005 Bowman Heritage, and 2001 Fleer Futures. Yep, yep, and yep.
2003 Fleer Platinum, 2000 SP Authenitc, and two from 2004 Donruss Elite. I think the Extra Edition 'parallel' was the retail version or something. I don't actually know.
HoF 2016, baby. Get your Griffeys now. Go Reds.
