Cal Ripken Jr. 2012 Topps ‘Golden Greats’
While I am not a Ripken collector, I should be. And in time, I would like to become one – it’s just that the thought if trying to haul in all of Cal’s cards seems like an impossible mission. True, I have done it for other players, but I cannot think of one player that could compare to the number of cards that Cal must be featured on.
Still, when I do get a chance to grab a Ripken, I try to do so.
And this time around, I picked up this card from the 2012 ‘Golden Greats’ set.
Have a look:
The card is a beauty, and it pays tribute to Cal’s uber-impressive night against the Braves on June 13, 1999. In that game, Cal went 6-for-6 as he connected for two home runs, a double, three singles, five runs scored, six RBI, and thirteen total bases.
And yes, the Orioles won: 22-1!!!
