No no no! Griffey had nothing to do with Auburn or anything this colorway. Plus the color blocking is off. Just give me the Safari Griffey 1 already

Good news now that baseball’s back – the Griffey OGs are making a return! We recently unveiled to you this Total Crimson/Hyper Blue colorway of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1, but before we go ahead and call these the “Mets” colorway, we’d like to remind you that Griffey once rejected a trade to the Big Apple, citing a desire to stay in Seattle or play for his hometown Cincinnati Reds. Considering how injury-riddled Griffey’s career was with Cincinnati, we’d say the Mets dodged a bullet of sorts, although Griffey would’ve been a nice addition to the NYM roster that made it to World Series in 2000. This enticing new colorway is indeed headed for an official release this Saturday, but some stores have stocked them early, so be on the lookout or cop now from yellownsxt on eBay.
