CAL RIPKEN, JR.
The baseball record-breaker's own story.
Bookplate signed: "Carl Ripken, Jr." a 3x4 bookplate pasted on first flyleaf. The Only Way I Know by Cal Ripken, Jr. and Mike Bryan, 336p, 6¼x9¼, hardcover, Viking: 1997. From the jacket notes: "He says it's no big deal--he simply shows up for his job every day, just like millions of other working people. But when Baltimore Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr., reported to the baseball field on September 6, 1995, for a record-breaking 2,131st consecutive time, Americans felt otherwise. In an era of big-money sports, strikes, and grandstanding, the hardest-working ballplayer in the world had single-handedly put the "great" back in America's greatest game. Now, with the candor and grace that have endeared him to fans, Ripken tells the story of his journey to that moment and beyond...." Includes bonus special edition baseball trading card in envelope bound into end of book. The story of the baseball great in his own words. Sixteen pages of photographs -- both on and off the field...including three pages picturing his record-breaking night at Camden Yards. In original dust jacket. Fine condition.
