Laugh of the Day: 1995 Pinnacle Ken Griffey Jr.

Ken Griffey Jr. has a lot of Bazooka. And it's not only in his mouth, it's in his locker too.

Not only is Griffey chewing enough Bazooka to make a bubble larger than a man's head, he has enough stockpiled below the Pinnacle logo to make one at least twice the size.

I don't know the history behind this photo, but I do know that the first time I saw this card, I immediately thought of the old 1970s Joe Garagiola/Bazooka Bubble Gum Blowing challenges players used to be part of. Specifically, the Kurt Bevacqua Topps card from the 1975 contest.

After the Bevacqua card, this is probably the most famous bubble blowing card ever released and certainly my personal favorite.
