Ok, here we go.
Can you imagine? Maybe Upper Deck would have flamed out. Maybe Fleer would have rose to be a more respected brand? Who knows.
What do you think?
Personally, I think Score's Ken Griffey, Jr RC is his best. Too bad it didn't make the base set and instead got relegated to the Rookie & Traded factory set where it languishes in relative obscurity.
What if back in '88, Score got a jump on everyone and made Griffey their #1 card? Maybe the company's fortunes would have turned out differently.
Ok, I wasn't planning on doing this, but damn it, now I want to see it.. so looks like I'll be tangenting into Cards That Never Were territory.
Yeah, I was lazy and just used his dad's card and didn't bother altering the text (besides trying to turn LF in CF), but it gets the point across. If that was the first card in Score's first-ever set, we'd all have a lot more respect for Score today, I'd bet.
We'll see ya next time for another installment of Baseball Card Mashup!
