2001 Fleer Legacy Cal Ripken Jr. – Tailor Made (Week 5)

2001 Fleer Legacy

Year: 2001

Manufacture: Fleer Legacy

Insert Series: Tailor Made

Card Number: 18

How I got the card: eBay Purchase

Again, another Fleer card with no card number listed!

Something about this card, strikes me as odd. Besides the fact that it has no card number, there is so much space not used in the design.

Overall, I am pleased to add this card to the Ripken storage box!

2001 Fleer Platinum – National Patch Time (Week 4)

2001 Game Worn Jersey Fleer Platinum National Patch Time

Year: 2001

Manufacture: Fleer Platinum

Insert Series: National Patch Time

Card Number: 45

How I got the card: eBay purchase

Great card. Nice black jersey piece and great background pattern.

That said I have a few issues with this card. First is the stupid Fleer logo image in the upper right covering part of the player image. Secondly and more important, no card number from what I can see. How and why would you create a card and not put a number on it! It took me a while but after checking Beckett online card catalog and then Zistle, I finally found the number. Cal Ripken Black S1 #45.

2007 Sweet Spot Classic – Classic Memorabilia (Week 3)

2007 Sweet Spot Classic Cal Ripken Classic Memorabilia CM-CR

Year: 2007

Manufacture: Upper Deck Sweet Spot

Insert Series: Classic Memorabilia

Card Number: CM-CR

How I got the card: eBay

Over the past few weeks I have been extremely addicted to eBay. I went a little overboard, but I got a lot of cool cards. This is the first Cal Ripken Jr. card to arrive in the old mailbox, but it is definitely not the last one from all the eBay buys.

A fairly simple card, not too much can be said about it. The only thing that comes to mind is the photography is simple and the overall layout does not interfere with the image. And that the relic is a boring white piece. Any way, I like the card overall. May have something to do with the fact I am a Ripken Fan and Collector….

This is officially card #238 in my collection!! Slowly growing!!
