Autographs & Game-Used

Cal-Ripken-Jr-(Base).jpg?id=5cb4cd7f-1040-4a0e-84d8-3bebf83345ed&size=original&side=front&.jpg Cal-Ripken-Jr-(Base).jpg?id=5cb4cd7f-1040-4a0e-84d8-3bebf83345ed&size=original&side=back&.jpg

Each Glossy set contained either one of two autographs or one of five game-used cards.

The five game-used cards are: Base, Bat, Jersey, Jersey Patch, and On-Deck Circle. The Base card is game-dated to Ripken's final game, October 6th, 2001. The On-Deck Circle card is game-dated to July 26th, 2001. The Jersey Patch card features the same design and photograph as the Jersey card, and is not otherwise marked as being a "patch" card. These cards are NOT serial-numbered, and Fleer never released the production figures for each card; however, it is believed that the On-Deck Circle card is the scarcest.

Of the two autographs available, one features the same design of the game-used cards, and the other is an autographed reprint of Ripken's 1982 Fleer rookie card. The reprint card is hand-numbered to 82 copies.
