2004 Fleer – Classic Clippings (Week 7)


Year: 2004

Manufacture: Fleer

Series: Classic Clippings

Card Number: 3

Numbered: 331/750

How I got the card: eBay purchase

When I saw this card on eBay, I thought I needed to add this card to the growing collection. Luckily, it did not sell for too much money.

I just think this is one of the coolest ideas for a baseball card. It depicts the newspaper box score for Ripken’s debut game.

Back of Card: “In a 12-inning affair at Baltimore’s old Memorial Stadium, Cal Ripken Jr. made his major league debut as the Orioles topped Kansas City 3-2. Originally drafted as a pitcher in the second round of 1978, he started out his career as a third baseman before moving to shortstop in 1982.”
