Cal Ripken Jr. 2012 Topps Golden Greats – ‘Stopping The See-Saw’

Cal Ripken Jr. 2012 Topps Golden Greats – ‘Stopping The See-Saw’

I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of the baseball card that celebrates a team or player achievement.  Regardless of the scale of the event, if the moment is worth mentioning and getting  a card, I am in favor of it.

In 2012, Topps gave us the ‘Golden Greats’ set.

This is the card of Cal Ripken, Jr. from that set:

This card celebrates the game-winning home run that Cal launched against the White Sox on July 13, 1984.  The 3-run blast came in the bottom of the 11th inning after the White Sox scored in the top of the inning to take the lead.  With the home run, Ripken secured victory for his team and sent all Orioles fans home with smiles on their faces.

  1. Too bad Topps didn’t use a photograph of Cal from the game or at least of the time frame that the accomplishment took place. That definitely would have kicked this card up another notch.
