Memories of Youth

I had a bunch of Griffey cards. I think I have that Upper Deck one. Jason's comments remind me of a ton of things from my youth that influenced my eye for design. (And a ton of things that led my professional career away from it.) I'll post some images at some point.

My first thought was "Griffey, he's still just a couple of years into the majors," and then I realized it's been 18 years! Probably has a lot to do with my hording his rookie cards back in '89 and then losing interest in the whole baseball card thing a year later.

Yeah, the only reason I even noticed his home run total at all is that 1989 Upper Deck card of his, which card is burned into my brain as a highlight of my youth and, come to think of it, the first bit of graphic design I remember noticing/studying/coveting.
