Michael Jordan, Ken Griffey Jr. Exchanged Autographs At 1993 MLB All-Star Game (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Perhaps for a moment, Michael Jordan might have known what it was like to be a fan. All it took was running into Ken Griffey Jr. at the 1993 MLB All-Star Game.

Fresh off his first NBA title three-peat (to refresh your memory, Jordan averaged 41 points per as the Bulls defeated the Suns in the 1993 NBA Finals), M.J. took a trip to Oriole Park at Camden Yards for the MLB All-Star Game.

After meeting Cal Ripken Jr. and Ivan Rodriguez as he made his way around the American League locker room, Jordan (sporting a White Sox uniform) made his way over to Griffey, who was in the middle of quite the dominant season.

Jordan casually broke through the media surrounding the Mariners' young star and asked for an autograph. A few minutes later, Jordan autographed the jersey he was wearing and handed it over to Griffey.

It might not be fodder for a sportsy "Picasso at the Lapin Agile" but it's still a pretty neat moment to spy on.
