Cal Ripken Jr. 1994 Topps Stadium Club
Holy Cow, this is a sweet image!
I always enjoyed how Topps’ Stadium Club brand felt like you were holding a true photograph. With their border-less style, each one felt like a mini picture, with a few added graphics.
This card from the 1994 Stadium Club set carries true with that same style.
And it looks like Ripken had to get a little dirty on this play to make an out. It appears that he had to bolt to his right and dive for the ball, and then quickly spring up and fire a strike to first to get the runner out. Did he do it? One would certainly have to guess that he did.
Cal had the range and arm for the job, no doubt about it!!!
