Provenance of an oddball Ripken?

I happened upon a Ripken card with a gold border with the title "Mr. Baseball" on it. The back shows plain white stock with some basic information, probably was released in 1993 or so. On the back it does say "Aberdeen Cards" on it, but I cannot seem to find much information about them. Does anyone know anything about this card? Is there a set associated with it? Are there any variations? Any help is appreciated!

The Ripken family is from Aberdeen, MD. There is a baseball museum honoring Cal and the rest of the family. So it may be a keepsake from there. Or it may also be a giveaway from one of his camps that are held there a few times a year.
