Commons4Kids Sends More Than Just Commons

@Commons4Kids who has donated millions of cards to to kids over the years, recently held a contest for the most iconic card in trading card history. Yes, most iconic. What other card can you say made such an impression on the hobby than the 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey jr rookie? And what other card can you say made a cameo in a music video? (Macklemore)

This card is iconic folks. The most iconic card in history so don't as the new kids call it today, "don't @ me."

I was the fortunate soul who won the contest from @Commons4Kids and I was pretty excited about the score. I have always wanted another one of these for my PC. I mean who wouldn't? I would probably take another ten more of these.

Here the beauty is...

Thanks again to @Commons4Kids for their contest generosity and for their generosity to the hobby in general. What you do for kids is amazing and they are the future of the hobby and you are helping keep that foundation going. If any of have any cards laying around that need a new home, I suggest sending them to these guys.  You can find out more information on their project and contact info on

Oh and while we are at it...which card do you think is the most iconic card in the trading card industry (this Griffey Jr is the answer I expect by the way)


  1. The most iconic card is and always will be the T206 Wagner. Followed by the '52 Topps Mantle.

    But the Griffey is certainly the most iconic of its time.

    1. Good point. I would love either of those just impossible to find. We should make a Mount Rushmore of cards which would include those two and this one. Just need a fourth.

    2. Jordan rookie could be the 4th.

      Congrats on winning the contest

  2. Congratulations! Definitely one of the most iconic cards of the 80's.

  3. Congrats on the win! The most iconic card of our time is an impressive prize!
