Cal Ripken Jr., 1995 Upper Deck #365

I'm sharing this card just because the photo is amazing. Cal Ripken sliding into home at Camden Yards, kicking up a cloud of dust and gazing expectantly at the home plate umpire to see if he was safe. To the right, the catcher (Mariners, I'm thinking) holds up his glove, pleading his case. If this picture was taken in 1994, there were only two potential plays at the plate involving Cal, and he was safe both times. Take that, Dan Wilson!
