1914 Babe Ruth rookie card Baltimore Sun——-

Why would Fayetteville, NC be so crazy about Babe Ruth?

100 years ago, that’s where the Sultan of Swat swatted his first professional home run and the town is having a big centennial party this weekend.

Ruth was playing minor league ball for the Baltimore Orioles at the time.  The Baltimore Sun chronicles the plans and has the story of what happened that day a century ago.

——-

So college pennants are a thing, now.

At least that’s what this story says.

A 1980 Charlotte O’s Cal Ripken Jr. rookie card from the WBTV /Charlotte Police orange border issue graded PSA 2 would not seem to the casual observer to be a big deal.  To collectors these days, it’s a very big deal.

The early Ripken minor league cards are en fuego as this auction again proves.
