Fun Cards Submission: 1973 Topps Ken Griffey Jr. by Lanny Ribes!

1973 Topps Griffey

Ken Griffey made his big-league debut for the Reds on August 25, 1973. Ken Griffey Jr. was just a tiny tot at the time, but in sixteen years he would be in the majors too, and eventually got a shoe deal with the “Swingman” logo. I didn’t even notice Lanny’s use of the “Swingman” until he pointed it out to me, but it works perfectly on this design.
