Posted By: <b>John(z28jd)</b><p>The person bidding on the Mike Griffin picture is Steve Griffin,who is the great-grand nephew of Mike Griffin(who was also in the old judge set).He was actually a great centerfielder for Brooklyn in the 80s-90s,not on the hall of fame level but if he had another 2 or 3 good seasons he might have been.<BR><BR> Steven Griffin is a little slow(mentally from birth) but if you want to know anything about Mike Griffin he is the person to ask.He is trying to get Mike elected into the utica hall of fame and also in the county(whatever county utica is in) hall of fame. On a higher level he is also trying his best to get him into the National baseball hall of fame,i politely tried to tell him maybe Mike Griffin doesnt have the stats to be a hall of famer but who am i to crush someones dream and goal.Hes very passionate when it comes to Mike Griffin<BR><BR>

Posted By: <b>Hankron</b><p>This is not a comment on this particular painting, but high quality modern baseball paintings are scarce, unappreceated and highly undervalued. The collector with a knowledge of painting and an eye for quality, could make some sound investments.

Posted By: <b>Anonymous</b><p>I dont think its called upstate county,im pretty sure its something like Oneida County.I stayed in Utica last time i went to the Hall of Fame and im probably the only person who wears a Utica BlueSox hat 24 hours a day(not literally 24 hours but damn near close to that) For those who dont know,the Blue Sox no longer exist,theyre now Cal Ripkens new team and they moved out of Utica
