Let's celebrate Ken Griffey Jr.'s birthday with a special '25-Year-Old Baseball Cards'

Big League Stew

Even though it seems like 1989 wasn’t too long ago and we were all chasing Ken Griffey Jr. Upper Deck rookie cards, today is actually is Griffey’s 48th birthday. The Kid ain’t exactly a kid anymore.

To honor one of baseball’s all-time greats, we put together a special edition of 25-Year-Old Baseball Cards showing some of the best moments when we found Griffey cards in our series and the trades that happened or almost happened involving Griffey.

It includes fellow Hall of Famer Andre Dawson, Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle, Cincinnati Reds coach Delino DeShields and comedian Joel McHale.
