Cal Ripken Jr. to appear on limited edition Old Bay tin

Wednesday August 12th, 2015

Maryland’s favorite spice blend is commemorating one of the state’s greatest sports stars with an Old Bay tin celebrating the 20th anniversary of Cal Ripken Jr.’s 2,131st consecutive start, which broke the record set by Lou Gehrig.

The limited edition packaging features a silhouette of Ripken against a brick wall above the number 2,131 and each will be numbered from one to 48,000.

The Cal Ripken Sr. foundation is offering a chance to win a tin autographed by baseball’s Iron Man himself on its Facebook page, for those looking for the next level of Maryland collectibles.

The Washington Post reports that this is not the first time the seasoning company has honored local sports, with a pair of Ravens Tins celebrating the team’s 2013 Super Bowl victory.
