    1982 & 1983 Topps Baseball Rack Pack Pair (2) - Both With Cal Ripken Jr. on Front. Baseball's Iron Man was honored as the American League Rookie of the Year in 1982. Ripken actually made his Big League debut two weeks before his twenty-first birthday in August of 1981 after spending most of the season in Rochester. His stat line for that abridged first season provided little hint of the Hall of Fame career to come--five hits and no RBI's in twenty-three games, with a .128 batting average. It would prove to be the first and last time that Ripken would fail to impress. Offered is a pair of unopened Topps Baseball Rack packs, one from 1982 and one from 1983. Both feature Cal Ripken Jr. as one of the front cards. The 1982 rack shows the rookie card of Cal Ripken, HoF reliever Lee Smith and Sox star and broadcaster Tom Paciorek. Overall NM or better condition; the 1983 rack contains 51 cards and shows a trio of HoFers including Rich Gossage, Cal Ripken and Ozzie Smith as front cards. Overall NM or better condition.
