Presented is a 1980 WBTV Charlotte O's Blue Border complete set of (26) cards featuring the coveted Cal Ripken card. Purportedly 1,400 sets were printed for a May 1980 Charlotte O's home date. Unfortunately for attendees, the game was cut short by rain and many sets were ultimately tossed into a dumpster. This well-handled issue (averages GD) is difficult to uncover in any condition. The early "Iron Man" portrait of Ripken is graded VG 3 by PSA and is one of only 44 total copies judged by the third-party service. More on our website.
