Baseball - Cal Ripken Jr. Master Set: K's Collection Image Gallery

1982 DONRUSS 405 CAL RIPKEN JR.

Of the 3 main RC's this was my favorite. I can still remember my mother buying me one of these at a card shop when I was a kid for $35, and then I showed it off to all my friends for years to come as if it was a rare artifact or something...

1982 FLEER 176 CAL RIPKEN JR.

The poorest quality of the 3 main RC's. Centering was horrendous and the picture was often blurry. Getting one in PSA 10 will definitely cost ya.

1982 TOPPS 21 ORIOLES FUTURE STARS

Even though this is considered the Key RC I was never a big fan of it. I think I was turned off by the other 2 players, or maybe because it was a horizontal card. IDK, either way I have it in 10 and thats all that counts I guess.

Good Luck cutting one of these things. This will probably be a Pop 1 for a while.

1987 LEAF 98 CAL RIPKEN JR.

All the Leaf issues from the 80's are very poor quality, and quite tough to obtain in high grade. This is in my opinion the toughest! Centering is awful. Edge chipping is extremely common, as is the case with all black bordered cards. And the stock is very flimsy. Good luck getting one of these in 10. Even this one is off center T/B a bit. $$$

Was located on the right edge of print sheet which led to all sorts of centering issues. Plus 90 Topps was notorius for chipping around the edges and corner dings right out of the pack.

Same problems that plagued '93, however the quality control seemed better probably due to this being Pinnacle's first year of production.

Extremely Tough Due to the Black border! Also the super high gloss on the cards would cause them to stick together, and when they were peeled apart sometimes color from the other card would stay behind!
