20th ANNIVERSARY: Cal Ripken Plays 2131 Consecutive Game

Quick Post to recognize the 20th Anniversary of Cal Ripken playing in his 2131st consecutive game, breaking the record previously held by Lou Gehrig.

This card is from a special 2001 Commemorative set that I believe was a giveaway at an Orioles game - wish I can remember.

The flip side of the card covers some of the milestones in the streak and has a thumbnail of the lineup card from the game Ryan Minor started in place of Ripken. We discussed that game where Cal Ripken finally took a day off on the 15th Anniversary.
