Absolutely beautiful 1989 photograph of Seattle Mariners rookie Ken Griffey Jr. as he stood in the batters box and sized up a pitcher from the Detroit Tigers before stepping to the plate. A full 8x10 and printed on Kodak paper, this is the work of famed photographer Clifton Boutelle and offered here for the first time ever. We also have Boutelle's own contact sheet with this photo circled and a 1989 date for provenance (copy of contact sheet included with this photo). Photo is a perfect 10/10 and even comes with the original glassine envelope from the photographer. In twenty years of selling photography, this is the best image of Ken Griffey Jr. from his rookie season we have ever handled!
