Even still, a Cal Ripken Jr. rookie card is a Cal Ripken Jr. rookie card, no matter the pose or face. Like his other two official rookie cards, there is no shortage of 1982 Donruss Cal Ripken Jr. cards.

In the early '90s, cards numbered to 10,000 were rare. That must've made The Signature Series Cal Ripken Jr. autograph a holy grail.
