Thanks for the feedback on my card, no photobucket at the moment, and all of my Griffey Jr. collection consists of is early 90's inserts/refractors or game used and autos of him in a Mariners uniform. Always been a Griffey and Mariners fan so I stray away from the Reds stuff. I'll upload a few of my rare inserts and refractors and send them your way.
Do you trade for or buy Griffey items you don't have? I've got quite a few doubles of 90's stuff.

I've seen your collection and watched you rant and rave about how yours is the "best of the best" your collection has few early great Griffey cards but mostly consists of later reds patches and autographs which were pretty mass produced, especially after Grifey was no longer exclusive to Upper Deck for game used and Autographs. If your're basing a Griffey collection of of how "rare" the card is then you would know that anything from 1989-1999 is the rarest of any Griffey card as that was the prime of his career and shortprints for baseball card inserts/gameused/autos actually were short-printed. There weren't 100 different variations of the same Patch card numbered to /50
I respect his decision to be with his family and dad but don't enjoy seeing a collection of Griffey on the reds as much. I've seen your photo album and read your rants and raves about how your Griffey collection is "the best of the best" on a number of forums and am frankly pretty disgusted at how others may view the mass of Griffey fans based on your attitude.
The arrogance you have in your collection and the general attitude of "having the best of the best ever!" is ridiculous and needs to stop. If you enjoy your collection so much and it means the world to you then sit at home and bask in your own glory of mass produced autos and patches but don't force feed us like unwilling Foie gras.
Anyone associating Griffey more so with the Reds is just ridiculous, even Griffey himself decide to go back to the Mariners because he knew that was his home.
Griffey's entire story is only emotional because of his Mariner heritage and what he did during his years there. There is a reason its called "The House that Griffey Built."
Source of my claim for you being ridiculous:
