Before Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. could break Lou Gehrig’s historic consecutive games played streak, he would have to tie him. That’s exactly what Ripken did when he suited up for the 2,130th consecutive time on September 5th, 1995 against the California Angels. These six warm-up items were worn by Cal when he tied Lou Gehrig’s historic consecutive games streak on September 5th, 1995. The first item in this lot is a size XL Structure all-black t-shirt. The Structure tag is sewn on the inside back collar with a yellow identification tag that is clipped to it that reads “005.001.020 2130undershirt bag19.” Ripken’s number “8” is also handwritten in black marker on the Structure tag. The next item is a pair of Nike Spandex shorts. These pants are also all-black and have the Nike swoosh printed in white on the lower front left leg.
