I could never justify paying full price for a box of Sterling, it’s just a little too much for me to take the gamble. With that being said, I love the base cards. Something about them just jumps out to me. So I have been stuck with picking up singles on eBay for now. Here are the two new Ripken Sterling base cards.
Back of Card: “After winning the AL Rookie of the Year Award in 1982, Cal followed up by capturing AL MVP honors in 1983 by batting .318 with 27 homers and 102 RBI – and helping the Orioles to a World Series championship. Ripken was named MVP again in ’91.”
Back of Card: “Ripken’s career will be remembered for hard work, consistency, and of course “The Streak.” A model of determination, Cal shattered Lou Gehrig’s consecutive games streak by playing in an astounding 2,632 straight from May 30, 1982, until Sept. 20, 1998.”
