Griffey Gallery Of Heroes

For months I have been in the hunt for a Gallery Of Heroes card of Jr. Actually, I have been on the prowl for all of them.

The one I have wanted the most is the 1998 version that has one sweet design. However, the card three times slipped though my fingers on eBay when I was bidding on it. I guess it just wasn't meant to be. However, at the same time I was bidding on the 1998 version, I also put a bid in for 1997, 1999 and 2000 and hoped I would land at least one. 

1997 and 1999 got too far for me however, 2000 fell into my hands for $5 so I took it.

These cards are printed on acetate plastic and have a stained glass appeal. These fell 1:24 packs or one per box in 2000. So finding the players you wanted wasn't always an easy task.


 
I am glad to have one of the 4 I wanted knocked off my list. I haven't decided if I want the 1998 jumbo version yet or not, but I definitely hope to add the regular version to the PC someday. 

Thoughts on my newest Griffey Jr add are welcomed in comments.
