2007 SPX Ironman

I picked up a few of these cards on eBay, and I would love to finish the numbered set. Every card is numbered numbered out of 699. In addition, each card has a highlight from Cal Ripken Jr.’s career.

So here are the first three SPx Ironman cards in my collection. Only 97 more to go…

238/699

238/699

Card #: IM38

“Both Ripken and Stan Musial played the entirety of their exceptional Major League tenures with a single team. Ripken spent 21 seasons with Baltimore, while Musial played 22 years in St. Louis. The Cardinals legend suited up for 895 straight games between 1952 and 1957, and Ripken passed him for sixth on the all-time chart during a tilt against the Matiners on 8/31/87.”

408/699

408/699

Card #: IM48

“In a closely contested matchup with Oakland on 5/12/90, Ripken delivered the big blows that enabled Baltimore to escape with a road victory. Down 2-1 in the sixth inning, the shortshop blasted a two-out solo shot to knot the score, and then in dramatic fashion in the ninth inning, he led off the frame with another solo shot to provide the game’s winning margin of 3-2.”

311/699

311/699

Card #: IM73

“Ripken finished the 1993 campaign with 24 home runs, 90 runs batted in and 87 runs scored, earning his seventh Silver Slugger Award for the shortstop position. At the time, it tied the Orioles superstar with Ryne Sandberg (second base, Cubs) and Wade Boggs (third base, Red Sox) for most seasons receiving the Silver Slugger honors.”
