    1998 Cal Ripken, Jr. All-Star Game Worn Baltimore Orioles Jersey, MEARS A10. A perfect MEARS A10 rating for this historic road grey knit is powered in part by the ironclad provenance supplied in the form of a letter from the Executive Director of the charity "Baseball Assistance Team" (B.A.T.) that marketed the game worn jerseys from the 1998 Midsummer Classic. This is arguably the finest from that collection, worn by the Iron Man and 2007 Hall of Fame inductee during his sixteenth of nineteen consecutive All-Star appearances. Ripken drove in two runs in a slugfest that saw his visiting Junior Circuit conquer the Nationals at Colorado's Coors Field by a tally of thirteen to eight.

    "Orioles 8" is applied to the chest in tri-tone tackle twill, with "Ripken 8" balancing the design on verso. Team logo patch remains affixed at left sleeve, with "1998 All-Star Game" patch at right. "Russell Athletic Diamond Collection [size] 48" label appears at lower left front tail, with "100% Polyester" and "1998" tags below. A single game's wear is evident. Black sharpie signature (9/10) on chest completes the package. One of the most exciting Ripken pieces to reach the auction block in recent years. Letter of provenance from B.A.T. LOA from MEARS, A10. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph).
