Series of Baltimore area exclusive medallions commemorate Cal’s career.
The Baltimore Sun newspaper, in conjunction with Ironclad Authentics, are producing a set of six giant Cal Ripken, Jr. medallions as part of a weekly promotion.
“Ironclad has been extremely busy preparing for Cal’s July induction into Baseball’s Hall of Fame.” said Ray Schulte, Ironclad’s General Manager. “We are very excited to participate in the Baltimore Sun’s tribute to their hometown hero."
The baseball collection consists of 6 Giant Medallions, commemorating the highlights of Ripken’s historic baseball career. The entire collection is housed in a glossy, full-color collector’s Album.
On Sunday, April 15, 2007 Baltimore Sun readers will have the opportunity to obtain their free album and purchase the first Giant Medallion at participating retailers. Every Sunday for the next 5 weeks, the Sun will print a coupon for a new Cal Ripken, Jr. Giant Medallion that will remain available for purchase throughout the week. Readers simply clip the coupon and take it to participating retailers (listed on the coupon) to purchase that week’s Giant Medallion for $6.99 (plus tax) each. The collection is available from April 15th through May 20th.
