    2001 Cal Ripken Jr. Signed Game Used Farewell Base. Not only is he the "Iron Man," but Cal Ripken, Jr. also has over 3,000 hits, 431 home runs and 1695 RBI to his name. He will go down in history as one of the greatest of our time, and his game used memorabilia is becoming increasingly rare to find as most of it finds its way into private collections. The offered lot is an excellent example to pick up now, from his final 2001 season.

    From the Miami Marlins game on July 15, 2001, this Ripken Farewell base was emblazoned with his number "8" insignia on two sides, and Marlins and Orioles logos on the remaining two sides. It is an official "Schutt Sports Original Hollywood Base" with dirt staining and wear. Displays incredibly, with a solid 8/10 signature of Ripken on top. An MLB hologram is affixed to the bottom for authentication purposes. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. LOA from Heritage Auctions. MLB Authentic GT034821.
