Kevin Millar knows what every kid who watched baseball in the 90s does — Ken Griffey Jr. is the coolest.
So on this week’s episode of “Old Baseball Cards” — our baseball nostalgia show — when Millar pulled a Griffey card out of a pack of 1994 Topps Stadium Club, it was almost like he transformed into a kid again. Millar, the co-host of “Intentional Talk” on MLB Network, showed off his best Griffey stance, swing and follow-through. Just like 90s kids did so many times in their backyard.
Millar also finds a few beloved old teammates from his days on the Florida Marlins and Boston Red Sox, and we get a kick out of George Bell’s glorious hair.
If you’re new to “Old Baseball Cards,” welcome. We open old packs of cards with baseball players, coaches and famous fans, looking for stories and memories. It all started with cards my grandma bought during the junk-wax era. They’re not worth much these days, so instead we use the old packs as muses for nostalgia’s sake. We’ve got plenty of great episodes you can watch below.
