Baseball’s true Iron man.  Cal Ripken Jr played his final game at Yankee Stadium on September 30, 2001.  His last official game came October 6 of that year.  Ripken will go down in history as one of the best baseball players of all time.  Among all of his records, the 2,632 consecutive games played is probably his most notable.  On September 6, 1995 Ripken broke the 56 year old record set by Lou Gehrig.  Members of the media that were at Yankee Stadium that day received the above pin.  They are worth about $80.00.
