Embodying an inspiring work ethic not seen before or since, Cal Ripken, Jr. played in an unfathomable 2,632 consecutive games over 15-plus seasons with the Baltimore Orioles. The offered autographed pairing is a tribute of sorts to the “Iron Man” and a record that could stand forever. Includes:
Signed Baseball a snow-white OML Selig ball (grade “10”) signed on the sweet spot in black ballpoint (“8-9” strength) and inscribed “HOF 2007”; James Spence Authentications cert/hologram #F56485
Framed Last Road Game Display framed to dimensions of 21-1/2 x 18-1/2” and accented by black-on-orange matting, the items include a plaque that reads “The End of the Road” with text detailing Ripken’s final career road game (September 30, 2001), which marked the first and only time in Yankee Stadium history that a visiting player was honored before a game. Rounding out the display are a color print of Ripken, Orioles and “8” logos and a full ticket from that day’s game signed by Ripken in blue Sharpie (“10” strength). Steiner Sports COA (for autographed ticket).
