Cal Ripken Jr. at Camden Yards - The Rob Arra Collection
After 21 years of glory, it came down to this. The final game of the 2001 season, eighth inning, with 41-year-old Cal Ripken Jr. facing 38-year-old David Cone for the final at-bat of his career. The memories and emotions of 48,807 fans, as well as the players and coaching staffs on the field, created an atmosphere not felt at Baltimore's Camden Yards in many years. As thousands of flashbulbs lit up the stadium on every pitch, thoughts turned to the amazing accomplishments of Cal's career: Rookie of the Year, two-time MVP, World Series Champion in 1983, a major-league record 345 home runs hit as a shortstop, and the 2,632 consecutive games played between 1982 and 1998 - a record that will, in all likelihood, stand forever as the Ironman streak that will never be surpassed!
This beautiful print, from Rob Arra's Everlasting Images collection, features all that is Camden and all that is Cal, and as you pan across the image, you feel like you are actually there, with 48,807 faithful fans, at the historic event. From the stunning stadium construction, to the warehouse past the right field wall, to the Cal banners and scoreboard messages, to the giant "8" manicured into the outfield turf, to the action on the field as Cone delivers and Ripken swings, it's all here, in perfect focus, ready to take its rightful place on the wall of any true baseball fan! A stunning poster and historic collector's item, worthy of a nice frame and a prominent spot at home or office.
