Cal Ripken Cardboard Appreciation #2
This card takes me back to a day in 2005. November 5th to be exact. I remember it well. Earlier that year I had just graduated from college and gotten a real job so I had some money to burn when it comes the Collector's Showcase of America card show at the Dulles Expo Center. On this particular day, Cal and Tony were both signing autographs so I could not help myself. I ponied up the cash and got Tony to sign an 8x10 and I got Cal on one of his special retirement baseballs. This is a day that I will remember for a long time, the day I got autographs from the Baseball Hall of Fame class of 2007.
