Thanks to the anarchy created by the blown call in Armando Galarraga's perfect game last night, I wasn't able to mention Ken Griffey Jr.'s retirement this in today's A.M. Hot Clicks. While many folks have waxed poetic about Griffey's sweet swing (and it was), the first thing that always comes into my head when I hear the words "Ken Griffey Junior" is his 1989 Upper Deck rookie card, which created a frenzy among collectors at the time. Here's a great article on the popularity of that card. And here's a clip of Griffey doing a cameo on The Fresh Price of Bel Air.
