Top 100 Cards of My Collection Honorable Mention: 2003 SP Authentic Splendid Swatches Pairs Ted Williams/Ken Griffey Jr

Here's another combo game used card with Griffey paired with another baseball legend, this time Teddy Ballgame. In 2003, SP Authentic included a Ted Williams memorabilia set called Splendid Swatches which combined Ted Williams with various other stars of the game, including Mark McGwire, Mickey Mantle, Sammy Sosa, Nomar Garciaparra, and even Jason Giambi. Of course the one I went for was the Griffey combo. I think a couple reasons this card didn't make it were it's not that rare (406 copies were made) and the Ted Williams swatch is actually from a pair of game used pants, not jersey, unlike the Mantle which came from a game used jersey. Still nonetheless, a real cool card and awesome combination of two of the greatest stars of all time.
