Default 1969 Transogram Box Brooks Robinson

Day 39 – 8 February 2024
Thought to show a few of my PSA collection today with some raw vintage, too. I am working on two complete sets of the 1969 Transogram Boxes with cards and small panels. I am missing 4 boxes (Seaver, Swoboda, Callison and Allen). Looking for a small panel off the top of the head 1969 Transogram Box for the same players plus Banks and McCarver. In 1969, Transogram created a small box with a figurine in side. The boxes came in a very cool advertisement display, which I am looking for if anyone has one. The set includes 60 different players including Brooks Robinson. I am showing Brooks today in the box (several shown), a flat graded box, flat ungraded box, the graded card (highest graded), loose figurine and graded small panel picture. These make a very nice display and are hard to find in nice condition.

What are the odds that the only full box w/ figure I own is one that you need 🤣

Day 40 – 9 February 2024
Like yesterday, I am showing you some of my PSA collection. Today features Brooks Robinson in the 1969 Nabisco Team Flakes Cereal Box, which included 24 different players. There are 3 different 8 player panels. I collect the Nabisco Set in different formats. I have the 24 individual cards (2nd highest graded with PSA). I have 14 of the 21 different 2 player panels, and I have the 3 different 8 player panels. Shown today is the full panel with Brooks, the two player panel with Brooks and Fregosi, and the individual card (highest graded). The panels had a wide border and thin border, which you can see with the two different single cards in the picture.

I have one box with Brooks and it's in rough condition. I think a fellow collector could at least share ONE of the boxes... It's only right

Awesome collection! I'd like to see your set of Transogram boxes in one photo. I'm sure it would look nice.

Default Brooks Robinson Avon Fielders Choice Baseball Glove Box

Day 41 – 10 February 2024
Today I am showing the 1971 Avon Fielder’s Choice Baseball Glove and Ball Bottle with Box. I was not familiar with this box until recently. Avon sold this item for your hair. I imagine it smelled wonderful. Brooks appears on the sides, which I have included in the pictures along with the front of the box and the actual bottle.

Default 1970 Action Cartridge- Brooks Robinson

Day 42 – 11 February 2024
Back to the PSA Master Set for Brooks. Here is a common item to many of our collections, the 1970 Action Cartridge. There were 12 cartridges produced with baseball players. The cartridges required a special device to view the film. I am showing you the complete box in its original packaging, a raw box showing the backside with the other player names, the instructions and cartridge. I am also showing you the highest PSA graded box and panel. These are easy to find and not expensive. Has anyone ever seen the film?

Day 42 – 12 February 2024
Back to some boxes. Displayed here are three baseball card related box appeared on. First, the 1976 topps box featuring Brooks batting what appears to be left handed. He appears on the top and front of the box and included 36 different packs of cards with bubble gum. Next is the 1967 Topps box with Mantle and Brooksie. This box included 24 packs of cards with a pin up. This box is less common and a little more expensive since Mantle is included. The next box is from 1989 Swell Baseball Greats of All Time. Brooks adorns the box. The card of Brooks is also displayed. This box is very common and would include 36 packs of cards.

Day 43 – 13 February 2024
In 1964 Brooks Robinson and Ken Boyer were named MVPs of their respective leagues. Rawlings celebrated the two 3d baseman MVPs with a glove including their two signatures. Provided is a picture of the glove, which is in very poor shape. I am also showing the glove box with Brooks’ photo on one side of the box and Boyer’s on the other. I am also showing a pamphlet from the box (I believe) that included player instructional information, details about the player and some day to day highlights on each player throughout the year. The box is in decent condition and I have never seen another. The pamphlet is pretty common. I believe there is a nice folder with other details that was provided at a dinner or banquet celebrating their MVP seasons. The smaller thing at the bottom right is a clip featuring Books and Boyer that was handed out at the banquet (I believe). The clip is pretty rare. All of these items make for a great display.

Default Armour Meats (Pure Pork Sausage) Display from the 1970

Day 44 – 14 February 2024
Today I am showing you a Display from Armour Meats (Pure Pork Sausage) from the 1970s. The display measures 13.5 inches by 10.5 inches. It has two identical sides showing a list of 8 signatures including Brooks, Bench, Reichardt, Conigliano, Staub, Maxvill, Jackson and Williams and different view of a mail in ball you could receive for $1.00. The ball is made by Rawlings. The ball protrudes from each side of the cardboard and is wrapped in cellophane. The box has a hole at the top so guessing it would hang from the ceiling. I displayed this a couple years ago but thought to share again. I have never seen this one before. The display looks like it was made yesterday. Pretty unique.

I really like the box. I had an opportunity when I really first started collecting to pick a Brooks/Boyer box like the one you have, but it was just to much money at the time. Of course it would have been a steal at that price nowadays.

I bet you put on some Rawlings "Glovolium" on that glove it would come back to life.

I think those 8X10 drawings of Brooks and Boyer were part of the '64 year as well.

I'm unsure if you can see it, but both Brooks and Boyer have on the clips...

Before you picked this one up I had never seen this piece before. To me it’s so surprising that the piece survived, in this condition, for so long. Definitely an awesome display.

Scott,

I really don't know. I believe it's likely that Brooks and Boyer were taking photos with the people at the event. I believe I see on their name tags that it's likely a husband and wife from Burlington NJ; possible Dick and Betty, but not real sure.

I was wondering if they were Brooks or Boyers parents.

It has Mickey Mantle on the outside and is an offer for a personally inscribed bat. The O's signatures are on the inside. However, I don't know much about the piece. Does this look legitimate to everyone?

Default 1964 Rawlings Brooks Robinson Box and Clips

Mark, maybe you know…were the Brooks clips worn by everyone ate the banquet? How many are out there is the question. The glove might clean up a little; not much to work with. Ha. Thanks for sharing that awesome photo.

Day 45 – 15 February 2024
Another unique display from the early 1970s is from Brandpower, Inc. advertising a trophy personally autographed by a player of your choice. The display is blue with red and white letters advertising “All Star Personally Autographed Baseballs.” This display must have been a regional thing with the Orioles. Six Orioles are shown (Blair, Belanger, Grich, Palmer, May and Brooksie) with an example of the autographed ball in its display. I am not sure what the price for the ball was. In total, a kid could order 30 different players. See the picture of the mail in sheet with players. I have heard different people talk about these balls but have never personally seen one. Would be cool to find the Brooks ball and display it with this advertisement.

I can only assume the clips were made for the 1965 Rawlings Sporting Goods Fair held in NY. We see Brooks and Boyer wearing one and likely a lot of the others in attendance had them or were available to them. I've seen a few in the past, but not in large numbers.

Would be really nice with just an autographed baseball by each of the players pictured and placed in front of the piece.

Day 46 – 16 February 2024
In 1971 Rawlings created a red, white and blue glove honoring two of the leagues greatest glovemen – Brooks Robinson and Roberto Clemente. This World Series Special glove was signed by both players. Rawlings celebrated both players for the amazing performances during the 1970 and 1971 World Series where each player won the WS MVP. At the time, between these two playes they had 23 Gold Gloves. My glove is in ok condition but it is 50 plus years old. The glove came in a nice box featuring the two MVPs. Sadly, I do not have the box but depicted below is an advertisement of the glove along with my glove. If anyone has the box and ready to part with it, keep me in mind.

Day 47 – 17 February 2024
Today is another unique piece from my collection. The 1968 Creative Creations marble blister pack featuring 20 different player marbles. The marbles are sealed in the packaging and feature a picture and signature of the player. The packaging mentions 24 series but only 6 different packs were made. The pack has a Series Number and Brooks is on Series 3 (middle row, second from right). I have 5 of the 6 Series packs; I am missing Series 2. The packaging includes a great assortment of colors and makes a wonderful display. The back of the pack shows different player signatures. This pack has a sticker on it for .99 cents. Below, you will see the Series 3 pack, a cutout from a pack of Brooks and the actual marble. I would love to see PSA grade the small card that I have cutout below but I am fairly certain they will not. No judgment…I did not damage a package to get the cutout of Brooks.

Charlie,

Your red, white and blue glove looks pretty nice. I kinda gave up on the box; is pretty nice if you can pick one up one day.

Love the ‘68 Creative Creations marbles package. The cutout and the marble is of course neat as well.

Default Mark - Brooks / Clemente Box and Creative Creation

I agree on the box. Trying to find Brooks items is one thing but Brooks and Clemente is impossible. I know a gu that has one. He loaned it to a Clemente Museum. I love the Creative Creations packag. Just need the one to finish the entire set. The small piece is unique. Too bad I can’t grade it like the small lis or top on the 1969 Transogram boxes. Thanks for commenting.

It's a long story but I was finally able to secure the Ranger's dugout lineup card from 09/23/21 (the Orioles copy never became available for some reason) when my son performed the National Anthem.

My plan is to mat/frame it with a few photos and ticket stub (yes, I was able to get a physical ticket that night) and give it to him as a surprise for his upcoming birthday:

Congrats! That will make a great piece to frame. You’ll still need to keep an eye out for the Orioles home dugout card; hopefully it will come up for sale at some point. I’m sure your son will love it.

Day 48 – 18 February 2024
I thought today was a good “time” to show the 1968 Major League SuperStar Watch with Brooksie. This version is green but a blue one can be found. This has been discussed on Net54 before. They were MFG by American Time Co., Detroit, MI. MLBPA licensed the watches and came on a black band. I had this one put on a nice green leather band. The watch included a picture of the player. The list of players to adorn a watch in 1968 included Brooks and 9 other players who would later be elected to the HoF. If anyone has the photo and feel it’s “time” to part with it, let me know. I will be “watching” for responses. Well, it is “time” to go until tomorrow.

Day 49 - 19 February 2024
Does anyone else collect the Baltimore Orioles Hit and Run Club dishes? Today, I am showing the 7 inch saucer, 9 inch plate, 11.5 inch serving plate and tea cup. On the reverse side there is a stamp that says Homer Laughlin, Best China, USA, FD. Not exactly sure what year they were produced and when exactly they were used at Memorial Stadium. They make a wonderful display. They all look brand new. These plates appear every so often. The cup and serving platter are not as available as the two other plates. The cup is probably the hardest to find.

I didn't have "time" to post since I spent numerous "hours" at CHEERSPORT in Atlanta and just returned this "second". There is a "second" one...

I have ONE plate. Really didn’t know there was others besides the normal size plate.

Default Plates and Watches

Scott and Mark, you are both funny most of the time. Appreciate the comments. Nice blue watch with original band. Would love to find the card.

The plates are really nice. Several sizes for sure. I wonder if there are other serving pieces.

Default Orioles Camden Club Plate

Day 50 – 20 February 2024
Today, I am sharing another plate from the Orioles. This one is from Camden Yards. This plate is 10 inches. On the reverse, it is marked with Duraline, Dudson, Super Vitrified, 4034, Made in England. I believe this plate was used at the Camden Club at OPACY. Surprisingly, these are not easily found but when they are, they are reasonably priced.

Day 51 – 21 February 2024
This plate commemorates the 1966 World Series. The plate measures 10 inches and had a gold ring around it. It shows the iconic game ending celebration when the Orioles won their first World Series. Brooks, Etch and McNally are featured. On the reverse side, the plate is marked with Conrad Chafters, Wheeling, W. Va. This plate makes an amazing display. I always wondered if there were other pieces and the details on how a person would get this plate.

Default Orioles ash trays

Day 52 – 22 February 2024
I am not much on tobacco products or smoking but back in the day, the Orioles had a few “ash trays” out there for their fans. The top middle one I believe is from 1954 and comes in multiple colors. It measures 4 inches. This one is the green version. It is glass with a beanbag type bottom. The two on either side are glass and measure 3 inches. The one on the left I believe is from the 1970s and the one on the right I imagine is from the 1950s. Below them are metal ones measuring 5.5 inches. They both have Baltimore Orioles at the top / bottom and in the middle of the tray, the one on the left says “Stick with the Birds.” The one on the right says “Bird Boosters.” Again, I do not like cigarettes but these are pretty cool.

Default Orioles - Hartzel Bird

Day 53 – 23 February 2024
Today, I am showing you a few random items. They all appear to be similar in vintage. The mug says “Stick with The Birds” and is 5 inches tall. The plate beside it says the same thing and appears to be a candy dish measuring 5.5 inches by 6 inches. It appears to be glass. The napkin is similar but not sure what year or where you would find it. I really enjoy all three proudly displaying the Hartzell Bird.

I haven’t seen that napkin before; very cool. Looks like those items are in great shape.

Please keep me in mind if you see any more of Camden Yard plates. I’d like to pick one up.

Love the ‘66 WS leaping plate. I also wondered if there was anything else put out that was related to this piece.

So, the question is what is your favorite Oriole BIRD?

Day 54 – 24 February 2024
Not sure how to describe the item on the left measuring 5 inches by 2.5 inches. It appears to be an ash tray and a small expresso mug or tooth pick holder. The larger mug to the right of it measures 6.5 inches and appears to be a coffee mug. Both appear to be from the 1950s displaying the Hartzell Bird.

Default Baltimore Orioles German Stein

Day 55 – 25 February 2024
Today I am happy to share with you two of my vintage 1954 Baltimore Oriole Steins. I think these are from 1954. It is my understanding there are at least 3 different sizes. Can anyone confirm? Show a picture a describe how different. I think the third one is smaller and wider. Both have a metal lid that lifts up. The one on the left is 8.5 inches tall and more narrow and the one on the rightt is about 8 inches tall and wider. They were both made in Germany. The steins are a bit pricy and difficult to find.
