1997 PINNACLE MINT COLLECTION COINS CAL RIPKEN JR. 24K GOLD REDEMPTION 1/1 1997 PINNACLE MINT COLLECTION COINS CAL RIPKEN JR. 24K GOLD REDEMPTION 1/1 9 1 0 Personal Sub 11/23/2009 [I bought this in 1997 when it first came out from the original owner who found the redemption in a pack. I also have the letter of authenticity from Pinnacle. The man I bought it from met me in a McDonald's parking lot to complete the sale. I didn't trust that it was legit and had to see it for myself. I was in college when I got it and probably spent every penny I had at the time!]
