Description

The night of September 6, 1995 will forever be in the hearts and mind of the true baseball fan as Cal Ripken Jr. broke Lou Gehrig’s consecutive games played steak of 2130. A true gentleman and consummate ball player, Ripken broke what was thought to be the baseball record that was never going to fall, proving that all records are made to be broken. Signed boldly in blue and black ink, this scarce OAL Budig 2131 Commemorative Baseball shows good game usage and sports the Ripken #8 2130/2131 stamp. Featured on the north panel in blue ink is Ripken (“9”) with Jesse Orosco (“6”) on the sweet spot and umpire Al Clark (“5”) on the south panel. Both Orosco and Clark added the inscription “game ball 9/6/95” beneath their signatures. This baseball is one of only a handful of actual baseballs used in the game with the added signature of one of Ripken’s teammates and an umpire from the game. COA from James Spence Authentications.
