    1981 - 2002 Cal Ripken Jr. Player Set Collection (1,500+) - #2 on the PSA Player Registry. Baseball's future Iron Man was honored as the American League Rookie of the Year in 1982, but 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 as a member of the Redwings farm club. 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.

    Despite a Hall of Fame career that filled a treasure chest with Gold Gloves, Silver Slugger bats and American League MVP trophies, Ripken's legacy will always be his dedication and durability. Cal Ripken's consecutive games streak was just what baseball needed following the debilitating strike of 1994. The sport crept back into our hearts when Ripken became baseball's true Iron Man in September of 1995. His streak would swell to 2,632 games before it was finally time to take a day off. Following the timeline from Rochester to Baltimore and all 2,632 straight games comes our offered set of over 1,500 Cal Ripken Jr. PSA graded cards. Within this set are a large number of minor league cards, rookie cards, serial numbered cards, game used relic cards and rare region only cards of Ripken spanning his entire career with the the Baltimore Orioles. The overall average PSA grades of these cards averages out to 9.4.
