Long thought of as an unapproachable standard, Lou Gehrig’s record of 2,130 consecutive games played was eclipsed – and then some – by Cal Ripken, Jr. Here are some streak-themed souvenirs autographed by Maryland’s favorite son. Includes:
Signed Ball: a snow-white OML ball (grade “10”) signed on the sweet spot in blue ballpoint (“10” strength) and inscribed “2632 Consecutive Games.” JSA cert card/sticker.
Signed Book: a hardcover edition of Ripken: Cal on Cal (1995, Summit Publishing Group) signed on a photo page in black marker (“8” strength).
Signed Greeting Card: with an Orioles logo on the front and printed “Thinking of you” greeting on the inside, Ripken has signed in blue marker (“10” strength).
Non-signed items include (2) record breaking souvenirs (both postmarked “SEP 6 1995”) and a postmarked 1995 Orioles schedule
