That's just the cards that PSA will slab.


There's plenty of other "stuff" and more cards too.

Then letís see that list!

As a Ripken collector myself, I do not believe that such a list exists.

In 2005, I went through Beckett online to compile a list, but I have many handwritten notes in my printout for cards that I have that Beckett did not list. I need to get these into my digital list yet.

Going beyond cards to "all things" well that list would become insane!

I don't even have a list of the non-card things that I have. I should though, so that may be this winter's project.

There's stuff that won't be on the lists because it's not really cataloged.

Being a star, there's going to be the usual assortment of Broders.


Hall of fame induction day covers lots more than shown on this page. Plus 1983 world series covers. http://baseballstamp.blogspot.com/se...l/Cal%20Ripken


Varieties in most late 80's -early 90's sets Mostly uncataloged, but still there.

88Score - 3 different die cuts
Most Upper deck - different holograms
Topps - some with back ink that reacts to UV or not. Especially 91.


Promotional items from various sets, especially the small regionals.

Ads he was in, both in magazines etc and sunday paper supplements.
Promotional items from products he endorsed. (I have some cups from some drug he endorsed, maybe a notepad or two too. )

There won't be a list for most of that stuff, there may be a few lists that cover some of it but I doubt it will ever ALL be listed.

Yep, Prinivil blood pressure medicine.

I have a couple of sleeves of the cups, note cubes, pen and pencil set, luggage tags, I think the reflex hammer, 1998 Topps in prinivil folders, advertising pieces, disposable gloves, etc., etc., etc.

Here's a small sampling of my Ripken non-card stuff.

I had no idea they made that much stuff for that promotion. I'm also glad someone remembered the name of the medicine before I had to hunt around for my partial sleeve of cups.


I'm really impressed with collections that focus on one player. I've never been able to have that much focus.

Nice selection Tim. I really like that last game photo with Jeter.

Here's a Nascar pin I have.

IMO the Streak somewhat unfairly defined him. He was a top 5 and possibly a top 3 SS independent of the Streak.

1952boyntoncollector 09-19-2018 08:24 AM

no coke bottles celebrating the streak?



but seriously Ripken also was known to have more stances than most politicians in his area..

timzcardz 09-19-2018 08:29 AM

IMO The Streak was only ONE of the things that defined him.

He did change the position of shortstop opening the door for players like Jeter and Arod.

3000+ Hits and 400+ HR i pretty defining.

ROY and 2X MVP says something.

All-Star all but his rookie year.

Multiple Gold Glove and silver Slugger awards.


I do think though that The Streak was the single thing that most defined him amongst the casual fan.

ALR-bishop 09-19-2018 10:21 AM

Tim---impressive trove. I do not collect him per se but have all his regular Topps cards, and any of his Topps insert or test issues through 1994. I also have collected Topps Player Tribute issues

To add to the things that you will not find on a Ripken checklist anywhere . . .

Beckett cover printing plates (acquired from Beckett through ebay) that I had Cal sign at the 2010 National in Baltimore.

There is a store in Hampton, VA called "The Tenth Inning". The (previous??) owner is/was a big Ripken fan and had actually issued a publication that chronicled most if not all of his cards and other memorabilia. Though that was some time ago and would not be current as of today.

He may still have some of the pubs available.

I'm pretty sure that I have that.

I do believe that it covered all of the cards, or at least all of the officially issued cards at the time, and a lot of the memorabilia.

As for "some time ago" I think the publication was out in the early 90's before the volume of his cards and memorabilia exploded exponentially.

homerunderby 09-30-2018 06:56 PM

Pretty sure a list of Ripken, Jeter, Ryan, guys like that could be books in themselves. Either Beckett or Trading Card DB is only going to have 95-98% of what's out there. The interesting stuff is the other few percent.

Ron I always loved the English's Chicken bucket lids. Very nice with an auto. I might have to have him sign one as well.
