CAL RIPKEN, JR
20x16 color glossy of Ripken the night he broke Gehrig's consecutive game streak.
Photograph signed: "Cal Ripken Jr." Color, 20x16. On September 6, 1995, Cal Ripken, Jr., played in his 2,131st consecutive game, breaking Lou Gehrig's 56-year-old record, as the Baltimore Orioles beat the California Angels, 4-2, before a sellout crowd of 46,272 on an unforgettably emotional evening at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. When Orioles second baseman Manny Alexander caught Damion Easley's popup in short right field to end the top of the fifth inning with the Orioles leading, 3-1, the game became official and the number on the building in right field changed from 2130 to 2131. The amazing consecutive game streak has perhaps diverted attention from Ripken's other baseball achievements, which include 19 consecutive All-Star appearances (1983-2001), AL Rookie of the Year (1982) and two-time AL Most Valuable Player (1983, 1991). Ripken entered the Hall of Fame in 2007, his first year of eligibility. Ripken's father, Cal, and brother Billy were also Major Leaguers. Ripken coached both sons in their early years with the Orioles. With MLB and Cal Ripken Jr. holograms. Fine condition.
