Birthday Present From Myself To Myself - 1996 Fleer Ultra Diamond Dust Cal Ripken
That being said, something did pop up in the search that interested me. I found a very early "game used" card of Cal Ripken that I was certain that I didn't own. The card was a 1996 Fleer Ultra Diamond Dust card. The significance of the card is that is contains dirt from Camden Yards that was collected following the 1995 season, when Cal broke Lou Gehrig's consecutive games record. Initially, I thought I was buying the card, and the certificates, etc were extras. I didn't know that the card was a smallish booklet (about the size of two 4 x 6 photos together.
The card is really cool, I just won't have a top loader for it, which is fine, I have somewhere to display it.
