Baseball’s Iron Man saved the game after the debacle that was the 1994 baseball season. By doing what he did every day, going to work, starting every game, and playing disciplined, sound fundamental baseball, Ripken won the hearts of a nation and brought fans back to the game. Baseball’s ultimate lunch pail hero. In GEM MINT 10 condition, cards don’t get any better. And there are few, if any, Ripken cards that deliver as much appeal as this example. Big early and be prepared to stay up late for the GEM MINT beauty!
