Fun Cards Submission: 1962 Topps Ken Griffey Jr. by Lanny Ribes!

1962 Griffey

Topps loves the 1987 design so much they used it in 1962! The woodgrain borders are a little darker on the precursor to one of the most overproduced sets in history, and I actually prefer the 1962 version a little better. Lanny Ribes used a fantastic photo of Ken Griffey Jr. in this recreation. Griffey previously appeared on a “Babe Ruth Special” style a few years ago in Topps TBT, but I have never seen a base card version of The Kid on this design.

We are getting very close to seeing Griffey on every Topps design! Thank you Lanny for all the contributions so far!
