Cal Ripken, Jr. was the undisputed star of the Orioles by 1989. His bat coupled by his flawless fielding made him one of the American League's most exciting players. At the time this glove was used by him, Cal was making his 7th straight All-Star Game and would finish 3rd in the American League MVP voting – receiving 6 First Place votes and finishing behind Hall of Famer Robin Yount (winner) and Ruben Sierra. This offered Rawlings PRO 6-HF model glove was used by Cal Ripken, Jr. during the 1989 season. This glove displays outstanding game use with substantial wear being shown on the pocket, web face and throughout the body of the glove. The tips of the fingers are scuffed as would be expected from Ripken playing shortstop in the 1989 season. On the back of the pinky finger is “RIPKEN”, which has been handwritten in black marker.

The glove was constructed of Rawlings top grade “Heart of the Hide” tanned steer hid and is bound with tanned rawhide laces. The web is a pro-style single post double T-bar with a closed “Fastback” with finger “Holster” back and an adjustable wrist strap. The Rawlings red label with white lettering is on the wrist and “1989 – Game April” is handwritten on the outside ring finger. This glove has been signed by Ripken in black marker on the outside middle finger and this comes directly from the personal collection of Cal Ripken, Jr with a signed LOA from Cal that will accompany this glove.
