Ken Griffey Jr., 1989 Premier Player Gold Edition

Name: Ken Griffey Jr.
Team: Seattle Mariners
Position: Outfield
Value of card: Fuchsia
Key 1988 stat: What? I couldn't hear you over this card!
A ponderous question: At what point does a baseball card cease to be a baseball card and instead become pop art? Sure, Ken Griffey is a baseball player, and he's obviously about to take a pitch, bat in hand. But the rest of this card is grossly devoid of baseball (and taste). Instead, it looks like zombie Andy Warhol climbed out of his grave, threw up flowers on a canvas, pasted a picture of The Kid on top and added some gold leaf for effect. Huzzah!
