Description

With unquenchable determination and grit, Cal Ripken Jr. is the embodiment of the professional ballplayer. During an illustrious 21-year career, Ripken was not only a perennial All-Star, but an acclaimed spokesman for the virtues of baseball. This pair of game-worn Cal Ripken Jr. Nike cleats gives fans the rare opportunity to walk the diamonds where "#8" walked. Originally donated for the Tony LaRussa Animal Rescue Foundation charity auction, each shoe has been signed in gold sharpie along with a "'94" inscription. With both pennings grading a ("9"), these "gamers" reveal minimal wear, containing some evidence of scuffing, soiling and dugout pine tar. LOA from Tony LaRussa's ARF Foundation and an additional COA from James Spence Authentications.
