Cal Ripken, Jr. Game Worn Baltimore Orioles Rookie Jersey
the most significant rookie Jersey of the past three decades, one of
the only known Cal Ripken, Jr. jerseys tagged to the 1981
season.Baseball's future Iron Man was honored as the American
League Rookie of the Year in 1982, but Ripken actually made his Big
League debut two weeks before his twenty-first birthday in August of
1981 after spending most of the season in Rochester as a member of
the Redwings farm club. His stat line for that abridged first season
provided little hint of the Hall of Fame career to come--five hits
and no RBI's in twenty-three games, with a .128 batting average. It
would prove to be the first and last time that Ripken would fail to
impress.This inauspicious start makes the survival of the
presented road grey knit jersey all the more unlikely. A small
handful of Ripken gamers attributed to the 1981 season have been 1980
models stripped of identifiers and reworked for Cal's secondary
usage. The jersey offered here is the only known Ripken tagged to the
1981 season, as lower left interior tail holds proper "Rawlings
[size] 42" label with "Set 1 1981" flap tag and "1
Inch Extra Length" tailoring modifier. Orange and black tackle
twill "Orioles 8" on chest is original and unaltered, as is
the number "8" on verso. A team instituted plate change is
apparent for the name on back. Only Ripken wore number "8"
for the 1981 season.
Jersey is a museum piece worth displaying and rather than purchasing
this jersey in a frame we designed, we feel that you may want to frame
this jersey by itself or with another item, such as a ball, game
tickets, a photo, or perhaps a bat. Whatever or however your would
like it framed, it is on us. We will cover the cost of the framing from
the frame shop of your choice, up to $2,500. Just send us the reciept and you will be reimbursed up to $2500 for the cost of this framing.
