Same. Well at least favorite all-time non-cub. I collected any and all of his cards. I think at one point I had like 150 or something.

I completely changed my stance/swing in HS to be the RH version of Griffey. It actually helped me hit for a change.

i never had much of a connection with jr. i think a combination of how i didn't get into the game until 95 and i almost entirely ignored the AL (and anyone other than the cubs) outside of being aware of all those yankee players making the world series every damn year

Yeah the combo of Griffey and the Mariners introducing their new uniforms and caps got me to buy one too.

He would be the first with a Mariner cap unless I'm forgetting someone.
