While baseball instincts and hard work brought Cal Ripken, Jr. a Rookie of the Year honor, two MVP awards and annual All-Star recognition, it was durability that led him to one of the game’s seemingly unbreakable standards: Lou Gehrig’s consecutive games played milestone. This Baltimore Orioles home jersey display is signed by Ripken in a tribute to his eclipsing of the record that had stood for 56 years. Framed to 35-1/2 x 43-1/2”, a limited edition (1/8) Cal Ripken, Jr. Baltimore Orioles home jersey is displayed to show the back, where “RIPKEN” and “8” are sewn in black-on-orange twill. On the middle horizontal portion of the “8,” Ripken has signed in silver-colored marker (“8” strength). Just below, an embroidered legend reads: “IRON MAN PASSES THE IRON HORSE – 2131ST CONSECUTIVE GAME PLAYED – ORIOLE PARK AT CAMDEN YARDS – ORIOLES 4, ANGELS 2 – SEPT. 6, 1995 – LIMITED EDITION #1 OF 8.” Accompanying are a COA and hologram from UDA.
