Hot take 99 Griffey will be a Reds card!!!

SDS

He has had a Sig card an Awards card so with the Milestone cards being this year new flashy card he will get a 500 home run card placing him on the Reds.

Sorry Ms fans his 96 is the best you'll get this year

SDS

I hope not!! Holefully it's a signature series. He wasn't even half the player he was when he was on the Mariners as a Red. Honestly the 79 overall Reds card he has already is about as good as he was on that team!

@CDNMoneyMaker93_XBL
Yeah Griffey ain’t gonna be a 99 OVR Reds card. SDS made all of Griffey’s 99 OVR cards in the past as Mariners because that’s where he was the best player. He sucked in Cinncinati

SDS

If he gets a CIN milestone card, it will be for eating the most donuts in a year

That was before milestones cards existed. No one knows Kenny Lofton as a member of the White Sox or Steve Finley as a giant. Tom Glavine in a Mets card is almost criminal. If Griffey gets a milestone card, it will be for the Reds.

SDS

He had 2 good years in CIN, compared to 10? in SEA. It would be pretty rough if they made his best card with the Reds.

SDS

Why wouldn’t Griffey’s Milestone card be for his back to back 56 HR ‘97/‘98 seasons in Seattle? Griffey was an afterthought when he went to Cinncinati then Chicago

All valid points for debate. Lofton and Finley arent in the same ballpark as Griffey though. I also assumed Glavine was given the Mets card because they have had few historic options for their franchise on DD. I remember they even had to put Tebow on the All Time Mets Team for the Ruth grind. The Braves have an extraordinary amount in comparison, and also just got Aaron added this year.

I think it would be a crime if the Mariners best player wasnt represented with the best version of Griffey.

It won't be an issue with an Awards, Signature, or prime card. Those will all be with the M's. And likely Griffey will get one of those 3 series. If it's a milestone card though it literally has to be for the Reds just because that's how they made milestones work

SDS

where did he hit 600? It very well could be a white sox card for the laughs

Oh no, I get it. I understand the rationalization, and the points made are clear. It's just asinine if the franchise best player isnt with that franchise. It would be like giving Mays (best Giant ever) a Mets 99 milestone card for 650 HRs
--it's just the first example that I thought of, theres probably a better one
Maybe Frank Thomas 500 HR with the Blue Jays?

I agree however it's clear that SDS has a focus on changing up cards this year as we haven't seen to many repeat cards released yet. The only one I can think is the Awards Tori Hunter.

A Reds Griffey Jr would be a great shake up and based on the most recent tease Nolan Ryan is coming and it will be with the Rangers so the team shake up is happening

SDS

Griffey won’t be a 99 card tho if they put him with the reds. It will be like a 95 with good power, and horrible fielding because he was aging like a president

The career Milestone cards are still based on your whole career, it's just what team they played for when they achieved that milestone

If they award the Reds with a 99 Griffey before they award Seattle with 99 Griffey imma commit war crimes

SDS

Thats like saying do you think Babe Ruths upcoming 99 will be as a Boston Brave.

SDS

Looking forward to:

99 Astros Eddie Mathews
99 Mets Pedro
