The city pulled out all of the stops as they held a parade for their favorite son on September 7th. Offered here is the official proclamation given to Cal Ripken by the city of Baltimore for declaring September 7, 1995 Cal Ripken, Jr. Day. “PROCLAMATION” is prominently displayed atop this 8 ½ x 14-inch document with a gold seal affixed to the bottom left corner.

Certainly, September 7, sill be etched in the minds and hearts of Baltimoreans forever. Best wishes to you and your family.” These two documents are housed and custom black cover with a gold Baltimore seal on the front.
