Card not listed in Beckett
Just won this card for 10$ its a Ripken card /5 the guy claims its worth 1200$ but come on we all know thats not the case
here is the link
its out of 5 so i understand is will be the NPDTS, but upon looking it up in beckett it does not exist in there inventory
it was only 10$ for a low numbered PC card so it was a win for me.
they only 2 they have of this card is out of /2001 and /100 but no /5
So how do i go about adding this to my inventory when its not on beckett? Is it a real card, or a fake? and input would be cool thanks. Pictures are below.

Yes it is a real card. I've seen the version of I think Mariano Rivera recently. Finding a card not listed in Beckett isn't too uncommon though it is rarer for newer cards like this. You can contact Beckett (and most likely the won't add it to the checklist) but I know if you made a thread here:
The OPG staff will add the card to the SCF checklist.

I think I know what it is, actually. I have a bunch of /5 from 2002. One is from Elite football and they are the national Promo cards from the 2002 National Convention. I'm about 95% sure that's what it is. These get added to Beckett late too because they are really scarce.
I think you got a steal on it because I paid about the same for my Rohan Davey /5.

Having scoured the web for promos from the 2002 Chicago National (sounds like a brand of hot dogs!), I have to agree that is what this Ripken is. The 2002 NSCC saw a TON of special promos. Donruss issued 16 for Ichiro alone! I'll try to figure out of the Ripken was a one-shot or if they issued a full set #/5.
I went ahead and added the 'set' as 2002 Donruss Elite All-Star Salutes Chicago National. Currently there is only the Ripken card, but I'm hunting to see if any more exist. There were at least 4 complete set parallels issued by Donruss-Playoff for the convention that year, all #/5.

Guess i did pretty good for 10$ seeing how rare of a card this is lol, Im happy
I listed it on my spread sheet as
2002 Donruss Elite All-Star Salutes Chicago National #4 Cal Ripken /5
This turned out to be a pretty fun hunt, keep me up to date if you find any others out of 5/, im sure this spakred a lot of super collectors interest with this find lol.
