"Today's the day," he said to Manager Ray Miller when he arrived at Camden Yards on Sunday, September 20, 1998 before that night's game against the New York Yankees. And that was it! For the first time in 16 years, baseball's all-time Iron Man sat out a game, and the streak that was already three years beyond Lou Gehrig's age-old record was over. The timing was dramatic - the final home game of the season, with a national broadcast audience tuning in to a big surprise and a spontaneous tribute to Baltimore's all-time legend - and the night was magical, with the historic number stopping forever at 2,632, and the weight of the world being lifted off Cal's tired shoulders.

Published in poster size exclusively for SportsPosterWarehouse.com, this amazing piece captures the career of the great Cal Ripken Jr. with absolute perfection. With the classy Cal tipping his cap to the home crowd, and his teammates showing nothing but absoulte admiration and respect, a career's worth of Ripken memories come flowing back with every glance. Printed from the original photographic negative, and with a sharp commemorative graphic, this is the perfect way to commemorate "The Streak" - one of the most remarkable achievements in sporting history. A rare beauty you won't find anywhere else, this is the perfect addition to your sports wall-of-fame!
