1976 SSPC #40 Ken Griffey

Ken Griffey… played for 19 seasons with the Reds, Yankees, Braves and Mariners. He was a three-time All-Star, has a .296 lifetime batting average and is, of course, the father of Ken Griffey, Jr.

In 1976, Ken Griffey… was the Reds’ starting right fielder, made the All-Star team, batted .336 (second only to Bill Madlock’s .339) and had 74 RBI and 34 stolen bases. His Reds swept the Yankees in the World Series.

Shea-o-meter: Many of the photos in 1976 SSPC were taken in Shea Stadium; Every team came through Shea because the Yankees were temporarily playing in Shea while Yankee Stadium was being renovated. “Can two Major League teams share a ballpark without driving each other crazy?”

This photo goes down as “Shea”.
Shea: 44
Pretty sure it’s Shea: 7
Can’t tell: 10
Not Shea: 6
