Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. has announced that he will be auctioning off the 1994 Chevy Suburban he drove for several years during his legendary career. The vehicle was driven by Ripken to Camden Yards the nights he tied and broke Lou Gehrig’s record for consecutive games played on September 5 and 6, 1995. Ripken also drove the Suburban to Baltimore Orioles post-season games in 1996 and 1997.
The winning bidder will receive first class airfare and lodging for two to Baltimore where they will be invited to attend the Sports Legends Museum Gala honoring Cal and fellow Hall of Famer Eddie Murray on September 5th, as well as Rikpen’s statue unveiling at Camden Yards on September 6th. During this time they will meet Ripken and receive the keys to the truck from him.
The auction will be handled by Hunt Auctions. Online bidding closes Tuesday, August 28th at 8 p.m. (EDT). For those who want to check out the vehicle before laying down the cash, it’s under lock and key at Miller Brothers Chevrolet in Ellicott City (MD).
