Well, with the Orioles out of the playoffs I have some scans that I was planning to post for upcoming games just sitting up on Picasa. But why not post them anyway?
This is a Cal Ripken boxed set that was put out by Upper Deck in 1996. There are 22 cards and they are larger than standard cards, they measure 3.5 x 5. My scans don't do these cards justice at all. They are really great pictures. I believe UD included a card to represent each year of Cal's career and a 'header' card. I chose to scan a representative group because some are pretty similar. There are several batting stance cards, for example, with just different unis being worn.
The cards are slick, glossy and have gold accents. The scan just ruins the black bar across the bottom of each card. That's a shame because these are quality.
I scanned the box including the bottom and the top is what you see above.
A few were horizontal. This is one of the lesser pics in the bunch.
I like this one. Cal's looking cool with the shades, the Orioles usher rocking that cool uniform, the Warehouse in the background.
Classic Cal, as I remember his playing days.
The bottom of the box:
I saved my favorite card for last. It's different from the rest and features Cal and Eddie Murray with matching 'bad ass' expressions.
