Failure #9: Cal Ripken Jr.
Cal Ripken Jr.
The Iron Man.
Cal was inducted during the year that I made my first and only visit to the sacred grounds of the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. He was a great player and is enormously popular even still today. He occasionally appears on XM Radio with his brother Billy, and runs a wide variety of baseball programming through his family foundation.
All of this to say, it wasn't unexpected when I rejection letter from one of Mr. Ripken's associates (just a few weeks ago I had listed Ripken as one player who is too busy to sign, but I sent him a request anyway) explaining that they receive thousands of autograph requests and he is not able to accommodate all of them.
So I guess that means he does sign some of them?
Have any collectors out there had success with Cal Ripken Jr.?
