CAL RIPKEN, JR.
Unsigned, unopened VHS copy of 2131: Cal's Moment in Time, about Ripken's record-breaking 2,131st consecutive game on Sept. 6, 1995
Videotape unsigned. 7 ½ x 4 x 1. Unopened, shrink-wrapped VHS copy of 2131: Cal's Moment in Time. ©1995 The Baltimore Orioles. This tape is about Ripken's record-breaking 2,131 consecutive game, which he played on Sept. 6, 1995 against the California Angels. He voluntarily ended his streak by sitting out the Baltimore Oriole's Sept. 20 game, ending his consecutive game streak at 2,132. Ripken, born Calvin Edwin Ripken, Jr. in Havre de Grace, Maryland in 1960, broke Lou Gehrig's record of playing in 2,130 consecutive games in 1995, a record long considered unbeatable. In 1998, Ripken ended his streak at 2,632 when he took himself out of the line-up. A career Oriole from 1982 to 2001, he retired after the 2001 season with a career batting averag of .276, 431 home runs, 1,695 RBIs, 1983 and 1991 MVP Awards and appearances in 19 straight All-Star Games (1983-2001), and he hit 100 or more base hits in 19 out of his 21 major league seasons. Ripken was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007. Interestingly, Ripken also played in the longest-ever professional baseball game, the 33-inning, 8-hour and 25-minute endurance contest between the AAA International League Pawtucket Red Sox and Rochester Red Wings in 1981. Ripken was with the Red Wings, who ultimately lost the game, and played all 33 innings. Shrink wrap is lightly scuffed. Sleeve is lightly creased and scuffed at corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
