Description

Many experts in the baseball world credit Cal Ripken's breaking of Lou Gehrig's consecutive game streak as "saving baseball". The last work stopage in our beloved game was in 1994 and September 6, 1995 brought baseball back into the nation's spotlight. While that feat was amazing, it was calculated out and most knew exactly when Lou's streak would be broken. What was unknown was how many games past The Iron Horse Ripken would play. In fact, all the way up until 25 minutes before the first pitch on September 20, 1998, it was unknown how long Ripken would continue his consecutive games streak; so, about 6:30pm, Cal entered Manager Ray Miller's office and declared he was finally ready to rest. Miller had to go to his already made lineup and scratch Ripken and write-in Ryan Minor. For collectors, this made the sold out September 19, 1998 game against the New York Yankees the final game of Cal's streak, "2632". At the time, Camden Yards ushers were still tearing tickets upon entry into the stadium, making full tickets nearly impossible to come by, not to mention most stubs were thrown away. Offered is a full, unused MINT ticket from "2632", along with a three-page press release given only to members of the media following Cal sitting down.
