Ken Griffey Jr’s other rookie cards

June 3, 2010

With his trademark smile, Ken Griffey Jr. almost single handily launched Upper Deck into the collectable industry in 1989. Upper Deck’s very first card featured the then outfield for Single-A San Bernardino Spirit. However once Griffey Jr suited up for the Seattle Mariners in 1989, the card became an icon.

While the Upper Deck card is widely considered the official rookie card for the Cincinnati Moeller product, other card companies produced their offerings. Here is a sampling of some of Griffey Jr’s other debut cards.
