Description

The night of September 6, 1995 will forever be in the hearts and minds 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 significant usage and sports the Ripken #8, 2130/2131 stamp. Featured on the sweet spot in blue ink is Ripken (“7”) with game umpires Larry Bennett (“8”) and Greg Kosc (“8”) on the north panel and Al Clark (“8”) and Dan Morrison (“8”) on the south panel. One of only a handful of baseballs actually used in this milestone game, the relic is enhanced by the penmanship of the four American League umpires. The signatures are accompanied by a full-picture LOA from PSA/DNA.
