Break out your Ken Griffey Jr. rookie cards and watch their value soar: Junior has been named the American League's Most Valuable player. This comes after what has become almost an average season for Griffey: a .304 batting average, 56 home runs, 147 RBI's. It's hard to believe, but true, that this is just Griffey's first MVP award in a spectacular career in which the 27-year-old already hit more home runs than all but 75 who have ever played in the big leagues. Griffey, of course, says he'd trade it all for a World Series ring.
