Mr. Postman, Look and See - Is There a Griffey in That Bag for Me?

The fruits of blogging, hours of organizing thousands of old cards by team, then mailing all those cards are being felt over at the Junior Junkie today!

Jeff from 2x3 Heroes bombarded me with a 200-megaton hydrogen Griffey-bomb.

This WMG (weapon of mass Griffeyness) has irradiated the entire region with incomparable baseball skill, goatee-moustaches and general awesomeness.

Some of these I have never even seen before.  Lots of excellent additions to the collection.....
The Griffeys have landed
When I saw the card on the bottom right, I gasped aloud.  It's hard for any Griffey fan to look at this image.
I love that shot of Griffey giving daps....

Griffey played for the White Sox one time for like 45 minutes.  Still strange to me seeing him in a black cap and baggy jersey.

Both versions!  Woo-hoo!

Nick, this is the card I was telling you about on your cartoon card post....

Thanks so much for the giant stack of Griffeys, Jeff!  I could hardly wait to upload them to the blog.

Also, I got a PWE (my first ever!) from Dime Box Nick that contained the refracty version of this:

Regular banner + refractiness = Nick must have pulled this from a rack pack.

Everyone knows how awesome Nick is, so I don't have to tell you.  Thanks for thinking of me, man!  I've been chomping at the bit waiting to pull this card.  Looks great!

In closing, I'd like to share with you a little saying we have over here at the Junior Junkie:

Griffeys for me,
Griffeys for you.
I like Griffeys
in a big, brown shoe.

This saying has never rung truer than it does today. 

Now, my wife and I are going to strategically park a car filled with chairs and ice chests just off the Endymion parade route as it rolls tomorrow afternoon.  You Mardi Gras long enough, you learn a few tricks.....  I'll be reading tomorrow's baseball card blog posts from the neutral ground on Canal St., beer in hand.

Have a great weekend!


  1. It was fun doing a Griffey hunt, so I am glad not only to make you smile, but to hit a few new cards for your collection.

  2. As I mentioned in the note I sent, I have a few other cards set aside for you, but I felt that shiny rack-pack Griffey needed to get to you ASAP. But be on the lookout for more cards sent your way in the future.

    Glad you liked it!

  3. I have lots of Griffeys, I dont suppose you have a wantlist? Always looking for Angels. Email me.
