Offered is an original photo that measures 4” x 6” in size circa 1990 of Ken Griffey Jr. and Ken Griffey Sr. (wearing home whites) in the Major Leagues taken by photographer, Mel Bailey on Kodak paper.  Handwritten caption on the back reads, “Griffey’s HR’s August 1990.”

The photographic paper that this was printed on was produced from 1995-97 (Olympic markings). As of this listing, PSA will not grade modern era photos as a TYPE without any dated markings; however, we can assure you that this was developed during this 95-97 period.  If this were graded, it would be classified as a TYPE 2, due to the photographic paper.  Great shot!
