We are throwing it back to the 1993 MLB All-Star Game, in honor of Ken Griffey Jr.'s record-setting 2016 Hall of Fame induction, to a moment The Kid shared with Michael Jordan at the height of their respective careers.

Having just completed his three-peat with the Chicago Bulls the month before, Jordan headed out to Camden Yards in July and made sure he came home with quite the souvenir: Griffey's autograph.

The NBA legend interrupted reporters, handing a bat over for the star to sign. Jordan later took off and signed the Chicago White Sox jersey he was wearing, giving it to Griffey in quite the historic exchange.
