happy trails, kid

this is one of my favorite cards.  it is perfect. 
ken griffey jr was one of my favorite players.  he was many times perfect - in his swing, his joy for playing the game, and his abilities.

i really wish that he had been able to avoid the injuries in cincinnati (and the broken wrist in seattle, although that catch was awesome) and that he had made it to the world series.  still, he had a heckuva career.

here's to you, ken griffey jr (and your 1991 topps card).  perfection.
