Cal Ripken Jr. 1988 Fleer

The Red, White, and Blue striping that the 1988 Fleer baseball card set offers us may be a great color scheme for baseball, but it is certainly not a great match for the Baltimore Orioles.

Here is the Cal Ripken card from that set:

The card is nice and the colors are sharp, but the two varying color schemes given to us clash pretty well against one another.

Still, it is Cal!  And in 1988, he led the American League in sacrifice flies with 10.  A true team player that was willing to sacrifice himself for the chance to pick up a run and possible victory.
