The two Hall of Famers sign a white number "8" cloth patch in blue felt tip.
Ephemera signed: "Cal Ripken Jr." and "Gino Marchetti" in blue felt tip, 10x5¾ number "8"cloth patch signed by the two Hall of Famers. In 1995, Cal Ripken, Jr. broke Lou Gehrig's record of playing in 2,130 consecutive games, long considered unbeatable. The American League's Rookie of the Year in 1983, he retired after the 2001 season with 431 home runs, 1983 and 1991 MVP Awards and appearances in 19 straight All-Star Games (1983-2001) and 2,632 consecutive games played. His father, Cal Ripken, Sr., was an Orioles coach in the 1980s, and brother Bill Ripken also played for the team. Hall of Famer Marchetti, who played 13 brilliant seasons with the Baltimore Colts after one season with the Dallas Texans, was a brilliant all-around defender. He was adept at stopping the running play, but best known for his vicious pass rushing techniques. Marchetti suffered a broken leg in the Colts' famous 1958 overtime championship game victory. Many thought this serious injury would prematurely end his shining career. As it turned out, all it really did was prevent him from playing in a then-record eleventh consecutive Pro Bowl. Marchetti had already been selected for the post-season classic but he had to miss the game, the only gap in a string of Pro Bowl appearances from 1955 through 1965. During the same period, he was named All-NFL nine times, 1956 through 1964. Fine condition.
