The heyday of the Seattle Mariners just so happened to coincide with the heyday of card collecting, making the Mariners Legendary Lineup one which will surely bring back fond memories for card collectors of the late 1980s and 1990s. The first name that comes to mind when it comes to the Mariners is the great Ken Griffey Jr. “The Kid” was possibly the most sought-after player in card collecting history, and for good reason. He more than lived up to every expectation placed on him, especially during his Mariners career. But he wasn’t the only highly collectable player from that era. Randy Johnson was the definition of a dominating pitcher, Jay Buhner was a slugging outfielder who even became a ’90s pop culture icon after a famous scene in Seinfeld.
And just when it appeared that Seattle would be without their iconic, collectable stars, a man from Japan arrived. Ichiro would be the face of the Mariners franchise for the 2000s decade. The Mariners legendary lineup features the icons mentioned as well as other stars that are instantly identified with the Seattle franchise.
If you want to purchase any of these cards they can be found on the Beckett Marketplace:
Randy Johnson, Dan Wilson, John Olerud, Bret Boone, Edgar Martinez, Alex Rodriguez, Raul Ibañez, Ken Griffey Jr., Ichiro Suzuki, Jay Buhner and Kazuhiro Sasaki.
