Description

Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Presented is a dazzling 1980 WBTV Charlotte Orioles Cal Ripken Jr. example. One of the most famed minor league cards, the condition-sensitive blue borders on this scarcity are clean, while only the upper left corner reveals the barest hint of a corner touch. Only 1,400 WBTV sets were printed and distributed at a May 1980 home date. A reliable Ripken minor league website suggests that hundreds of the remaining 1,400 sets were tossed into a dumpster following that game. This surviving card depicts the nineteen-year-old Ripken at the dawn of a legendary career is a must for the ardent Orioles devotee.
