Reader Ryan Sends Over A Major Stack Of Cal Ripken Cards. We’re Talking 88 Cards. Yes, 88!!!
The headline is accurate. The facts are accurate.
I am the recipient of one of the greatest baseball card gifts I have seen across any of the many baseball card blogs that I have encountered over the last 6+ years.
Reader Ryan, of the blog ‘O No, Another Orioles Blog’ sent me over a stack of Cal Ripken Jr. baseball cards that would make any collector smile. Ripken is the epitome of baseball royalty and for Ryan to drop 88 cards on me strictly because he wanted them to go to a collector that would appreciate them is astounding and extremely generous.
The cards cover almost the full range of Ripken’s playing days, and there was even some modern stuff mixed in as well.
Have a look at the full treasure:
1 single picture cannot do this stack justice.
I’ve got a bit of organizing to do. And that includes logging the cards onto my Ripken checklist and dropping the cards into penny sleeves. From there, they will all hit the scanner and then be dropped into top loaders. Lastly, they will be drafted and then featured on ’30-YOC’ for weeks and months to come.
And just like that, my Cal Ripken Jr. Player Collection is off and running.
Ryan, Thanks again – a truly great treat!!
