1989 Fleer Ken Griffey Jr……Autographed!

Back in 1988, Ken Griffey Jr was the hottest rookie in baseball. Donruss, Upper Deck & Fleer made cards of him in their regular issue ’89 sets. Topps & Score added him their sets but not until the ’89 traded/update sets came out (late November of ’89)

I pulled this from a pack sometime during that summer. Moeller High School has an anuual sports card show and since Griffey Jr hadnt reached superstar status yet, he was there to sign autographs, cheap at $15 each.

I got a ball and a card signed. At the time, a lot of collectors told me not to have a card signed as it hurts the value of the card. Today, collectors have any card they can get signed.

I also had this ball signed as well!
