Wax Trash Era Must Have - Vol 1 Ken Griffey Jr. 1989 Score Traded #100

For years the Ken Griffey Jr. card to have has always been the 1989 Upper Deck #1 Rookie Card.  Still right now on ebay that card still sells for between $25-50 ungraded, and near $100 graded high.  But there are several alternatives to getting a cheaper Griffey Rookie Card.  My personnel favorite is the 1989 Score Traded #100.  You can find these on ebay for about $3-7 ungraded, and only $15 graded high.  Some don't like the colors used on the traded set, but I kind of like the green, pink, and purple boarders.
Griffey Jr. is sure first round hall of famer, and right now is the right time to pick up some of his key rookie cards before he gets his hall of fame bump in value.  Here I am 33, been collecting since 1985 and still have not bought a 1989 Upper Deck #1 Griffey Rookie.  I do though have everyone of his other 1989 releases and rookie cards and picked them all up well under what I could have bought just that one card.  Griffey was the hype in early 90s what Bryce Harper has been in 2011/12.  But sorry Bryce, you aren't no Junior!
