2021 City Series
#6 Cal Ripken- Charm City
The City Series is designed to celebrate Baseball stars from 80s to today. Each card is designed with custom player art, city themed backgrounds and team color borders.

Cal Ripken Jr. was a throwback. He played hard, he played to win, and he played in every game. 

On May 30, 1982, Ripken began “the streak” – the longest stretch of consecutive games played by anyone in baseball history (2,632), and in the process earned the moniker “Iron Man.” 

A 19-time All-Star and two-time American League Most Valuable Player, Ripken redefined the shortstop position. Traditionally viewed as a position from which you wouldn’t expect a lot of offense, Ripken ushered in an era of superstar shortstops that could not only handle the rigors of the position defensively, but regularly hit 20-30 home runs and bat .300.

Ripken was selected in the second round of the 1978 MLB Draft by the Orioles – the franchise where his father worked as a coach. Ripken debuted in the big leagues in 1981, won the American League Rookie of the Year Award in 1982 and the AL Most Valuable Player Award in 1983 while leading Baltimore to the World Series title.

Topps Project 2020 has inspired a growing number of hobbyists to create their own card art. To provide them with support, I'm inviting artists to build their own guest shop! I lend my expertise to mentor and guide them along the way... my ultimate vision is to curate a mini-marketplace for card-inspired artwork.
