1958 Yankees team card, one of the first vintage baseball cards I bought in the mid-1990s, shortly after Mickey Mantle's death. It's a little off-centered, but all I cared about was getting a Mantle. The sticker on the right side tells where he is seated. Cal Ripken Jr.'s Donruss rookie card. The card shop I frequented got a shipment of Donruss '82 wax packs for about five bux each, and I kept buying them until I got this card. When I opened the winning pack I ran back to the store and bought a screwed down plastic holder. back then it was worth about $65, now I believe it's around $30.

    Hang onto that Ripken and see what happens in about 30 years. There will never be a NEW ironman. Its clean and certainly gradeable,very nice.

    You and I are both lucky. I was looking through my collection a couple days ago and lo and behold, I have this card also. Not to mention many other Cal Ripkin, Jr. and Nolan Ryan (my favorites). Someday I hope my grandkids are very happy with me!
