It’s a pretty rare moment, and a rare video. At the 1993 All Star Game, cameras caught a moment between Ken Griffey Jr and Michael Jordan, two of the greatest to ever play their respected sports. Michael Jordan was dawning a White Sox uniform at the time, but arguably the greatest basketball player of all time is seen trading autographs with The Kid who quite possibly became one of the greatest baseball players of all time.
Junior has been my favorite baseball player for as long as I can remember. 20 years? I’ve never seen this video. This is the best example of real recognizing real; greatness appreciating greatness.
Check out this rare footage of Michael Jordan and Ken Griffey Jr exchanging smiles and autographs at the 1993 All Star Game.
