    1996 Cal Ripken, Jr. Game Worn & Signed Baltimore Orioles Jersey with Team Letter.
    The Iron Horse was now in Ripken's rear view, but the sport's most dedicated employee kept right on trucking in 1996, the season this road grey knit saw action with the Hall of Fame shortstop. The garment was gifted by the Orioles franchise to Miss Maryland of 1997, and an included letter on team letterhead states in part, "Cal wore the jersey as he played for the Orioles throughout the 1996 season, a season in which the Orioles advanced to the American League Championship Series," closing with good luck wishes for the 1997 Miss USA pageant.

    The garment exhibits solid wear from the stalwart superstar, featuring a tri-color "Orioles" scripted across the chest above Ripken's immortal "8," that digit repeated on verso below his surname. Lower left front tail bears "Russell Athletic Diamond Collection [size] 48" labeling above a "1996" year swatch and twin flap tags reading, "100% Nylon" and "1" Extra Length." A black sharpie signature at lower right chest enhances the display. Original packaging from the Orioles is included. A top-quality representation from an all-time great. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Letter of provenance from the Baltimore Orioles. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
