National Pickup - 1981 TCMA Cal Ripken
This is a pretty tough Cal to find, and I am glad I was able to add it to the Cal PC. I often complain about how hard it is to find Cal cards that I don't yet have, and this one was a prime example of one I really needed. There is also the 1980 WBTV Charlotte Orioles minor league card, but I will never own that one. I saw one graded at a 7 at the show, and the vendor wanted $10,000 for it. No thanks!
Maybe I will be able to find a generous benefactor who has the Charlotte O's Cal card, but I highly doubt it.
Anyway, I am really glad I was able to knock off two big Ripken cards while I was at the National. Maybe if I think hard enough, I will be able to come up with some other Cals that can populate my Top Ten Wishlist for next year!
