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.


  1. Gallery of Heroes is one of my favorite lines of inserts sets, because they're so beautiful. Great lookin' Griffey.
