Description

Recent Hall of Fame inductee Cal Ripken Jr. is glorified in this lot consisting of three beautifully signed, framed and matted display pieces. Chronologically, the first is a “2131” display framed to a total size of 26x33, highlighted by a Legends Magazine signed by Ripken (“9-10”). This display also features full tickets from September 5th and 6th, 1995, the game he tied and broke Gehrig's record, a 1985 Donruss Diamond Kings Lou Gehrig puzzle, a Baltimore Sun “2131” reprinted newspaper cover and a pair of trading cards featuring Ripken and Gehrig. The second display commemorates his 400th home run during the 1999 campaign. The display measures 24x25 and features a September 2, 1999 full ticket signed by Ripken (“9”) from the game where Cal hit his 400th bomb, with a pair of unsigned full tickets also resting in the display. A “400 Home Runs” first day cachet and “400 Home Run” Baltimore Sun reprinted newspaper cover round out the “400 Home Run” piece. The final display is a “3000 Hits” piece framed to a total size of 20x22, featuring both a signed 8x10 photo (“9”) and signed April 15, 2000 full-ticket from the Metrodome where Ripken captured his 3000th hit. The frame also features a pair of unsigned full tickets from this historic game and two “3000 Hits” pieces of ephemera. Three beautiful Ripken displays featuring a combined four signatures already accompanied by an LOA from James Spence Authentications.
