Default Cap Ripken with Rochester...

Hey all,

I've seen this image here and there on eBay, but never in high quality:



I was wondering if anybody had a better looking version? Or knew where I might be able to find one? I don't need a Type 1 or anything, but just of enough quality to do a painting from at some point.

If anybody can point me in the right direction, I'd be most appreciative!

Thanks for reading,

G

One of my favorite items, a 1981 RPPC of Ripken. It has the same image and better detail than the color image you have but still not very crystal clear, I do like the detail in the area of the eyes. I have it scanned here at 150 dpi, I have a 600dpi I can send you if it would help at all...

Thank you so much for the replies, everyone!! Yeah, it was definitely that particular image that did it for me.

Rhett, if you can come through, you’d be the man.

And Mark, I might take you up on that.

You all rule.

It's actually a postcard sized photo I picked up probably 30 years ago.
