Monumental 1980 Charlotte O’s Police Orange Border complete set of (25) cards featuring the undisputed king of all Cal Ripken Jr. cards! This “holy grail” edition was issued for the Charlotte Police force and distributed randomly, one-at-a-time to youngsters while on patrol or at other community functions. As such, an already elusive set was made even more challenging as most cards were ultimately discarded or well handled. Only a handful of complete 25-card editions are known throughout the hobby and this edition very well might be the nicest. Graded 50 VG-EX 4 by SGC, the Ripken Jr. displays only general perimeter wear associated with its technical grade. Notwithstanding “crossover” submissions, only a total of 26 Ripken Jr. examples have been judged by the major grading services. The overall condition breakdown for the remainder of the set is as follows: 42% (EX-MT), 29% (EX), 13% (VG-EX) and 16% (VG or lesser). Other keys include: Hazewood (EX-MT), The Pepper Girls (VG) and Shelby (EX-MT).
