The last confirmed sale of the 1980 Charlotte O's Ripken card took place all the way back in 2006.

1.) When is the last time you've seen a copy?
2.) Do you own one?

Being that it was issued primarily to non collectors (school children) by the Charlotte PD for only a brief period of time....locating any singles from this set is nearly impossible. The last of the "common" WBTV Ripken cards was sold nearly a year ago.

Beauty! When did you get yours and could I ever convince you to part with it? :cool:

I got it in the mid 80's. I collected minor league cards heavily at that time. I still have a fairly large collection of sets from 1972-87, but they really haven't been my focus recently.
I have no current plans to sell them, but I never say never. If I get blown away by an offer who knows.
Please understand that I am not fishing for an offer. I'm just letting you know where I'm at.

Best,
Mark
