I know there's alot of Griffey collectors out there so I wanted to start a thread that we can show off some of our nicer stuff. I only collect him as a Mariner which does save me alot of money but I just don't think he looks right as a Red or White Sox. Having said that I do admit that the cooler patch cards came out with him as a Red. I'll start it off.
This was signed by him in 1987 when he played a series in Boise while with the Bellingham Mariners. My brother and me were the only one's there and he was only 17.
The minor league cards
Tiffany and glossy Rookies
The iconic card
One of my favorite sets

The ball is definitely the best! And i know exactly what you mean with him being a Mariner... just weird seeing him in red. I love the cameos he made in movies haha

Haha, wow his signature certainly got more extravagant since he was 17! Nice stuff

His signature at 17 looks alot more like his dad's.

Wow! Thanks for posting this stuff! I really like those minor league and RCs. That Tribute auto is a beauty. And I agree, it just doesn't feel right to see him in anything other than a Mariners uniform.

I was hoping to get some of the other Griffey collectors to pitch in on this thread. I know there is at least 2 on this form that have to have some really cool stuff.

I have one or two nice cards.

Thanks Bobcat, I've got to track down at least one of those by the letter patches. Looks like you only need one also. I know Griffey has a few fans out there so come on guys lets get this thing going.
