Did you know that in 1983, Cal Ripken, Jr. became the first player in Major League history to appear in every regular season game, LCS game and World Series game?
Pete Rose appeared on the list twice until Miguel Tejada bumped his second entry. Rose was the only player to accomplish that goal, but even if you combined both streaks (his second entry was 678 consecutive games played) he was still short of Cal Ripken, Jr.'s record by over one-thousand games.
Tickets to Cal Ripken Jr.'s first game of the streak sold for more than five-hundred dollars each when this page was created in 2000. Tickets to the last game were more than two-hundred dollars each in 2000. Tickets in late 2005 have soared to two-thousand to four-thousand dollars each depending on condition and if you are able to actually find one!
