Cal Ripken TTM Success

Wait.  before you get excited, this TTM success is over 20 years old.  I don't think it is nearly as easy to get him TTM these days.
I mailed to Cal back when I was 10 or 11, so probably around 1991 or so..  I got this signed postcard in return and I remember thinking it was really cool that I could get an autograph through the mail.  Who would have thought that 20+ years later that I would be this involved in TTMs and autographs.

I really like the post card itself.  I mean, look how young Cal was!  He had HAIR!

The reason you guys haven't seen this autograph yet is because I had it buried in my foot locker and dug it out yesterday.

Growing up, Cal was my favorite player.  He still  is, of course, but I have added a few other players to the list.

I can't believe you had it buried in your foot locker. Shame, Shame!

I used to have it in a frame. When I moved out of my parents' house I put it in the foot locker so it would be safe. I'm going to put it on display now.
