(As an aside, what is the rule on when a retired player can start appearing in sets again? This year's Topps set had SP cards of players like Frank Thomas and Paul O'Neill, but not a single Griffey, not even in insert sets. I miss that feeling of excitement from seeing my boy in a freshly opened pack!!)
However, I was able to score a small victory with the acquisition of a Griffey that is kind of like a Platinum Diamond. I recently discovered the 1993 Topps Mini Prism cards, and they almost look like a precursor to the Platinum Diamond design. The Mini Prisms were found in the 1993 Topps Mini factory sets; there were 12 Prisms per box. Luckily I was able to locate the Griffey from that set on eBay.
