The Kid Celebrates his 40th with Another Year

Seattle Times’s Jerry Brewer has a gratifying take on Ken Griffey Jr. returning for another season in Seattle
The Kid has been a personal favorite of mine – and just about everybody in my generation – for two decades (though officially the 2010 season will mark his fourth in the big leagues), and proves that a natural career progression (think Mantle, Mays) entails an older guy. . .getting older. Numbers aren’t what they once were, but that swing. . .Wow.
And that 1989 Upper Deck rookie. . .the card that literally transformed card collecting.
