Ken Griffey Jr. 1995 Sportflix Hammer Team and 1997 Topps Season's Best
It's about time I created a tag called "90s inserts rule" because these are excellent examples of the fun stuff collectors could pull during that decade, one where Junior was MLB's deserving poster boy. The Sportflix Hammer Team card brings to mind Super Mario Bros. 3 while the Topps card also features another example of Kenny's textbook swing!
Cal Ripken Jr. 1993 Leaf Gold Leaf Stars (with Barry Larkin)
Cal Ripken Jr. 1996 Fleer Golden Memories
Here's another pair of Juniors--Cal Juniors. You saw that first insert in my post from last Sunday, and of course I love cards that double-dip like this one as it features two of my all-time favorites. I think you can all take a wild guess as to the "Golden Memory" covered on the back of the '96 Fleer insert? Maybe something that occurred during the '95 season?
Stay tuned for the big finish this week as it'll focus entirely on a baseball PC guy you have yet to see in any of these posts!
