One of my favorite and most difficult cards to find is the next example...the 1973 Topps Comics (another test issue by Topps). This card is a PSA 6.5 and is very expensive and very hard to find. This set had 24 different cards with plenty of HoF'ers. There is one graded as a PSA 8. Finding this one proved very difficult. I am sure there are a few of you that have one but wow, this card is amazing. Next is the Topps Brooks and OPC Brooks.

The Topps card is plentiful and very affordable at the PSA 9 grade...the PSA 10 has not proven easy to find (8 PSA 10s are out there!). The OPC version is a PSA 7 with one graded higher.

Finally, you see the Topps Candy Lids, which is not terribly difficult to find and another Topps "experiment." There were 55 lids in this set with 20 HoF'ers. This example is a PSA 5 with 7 graded higher. Accompanying the Lid is the proof, which PSA suprisingly graded (this is the only one graded...my gut says they will never grade another "proof").
There are several of my favorite Brooksie cards in Ď73. The pin up is one of them as I really like the photo used of Brooks holding multiple bats. Go ahead and send me your example Scott...

You have to love the comic; doesnít get much better than that.

I go back and forth on a favorite regular issue card and the Ď73 Topps usually comes out on top. Simply the BEST Brooks picture used.

Maybe I canít see it, but I donít see a grade on the lid proof. I guess these get a lower grade due to the tab being bent.

Default 1973 Brooks Lid Proof

Mark, graded authentic. Most proofs (if graded) get authentic.

Most Orioles collectors are familiar with the Rochester Red Wings 1981 WTF card set primarily due to the inclusion of the Cal Ripken Jr. card.

However most collectors don't realize that one of the cards in this set has a tough variation.

From the web site Ripken in the Minors:

"When Steve Kozel received permission to print the 1981 WTF Rochester Red Wings set is came with a condition. The condition was that Steve would provide 3,000 cards of Doc Edwards for an Eastman Kodak Underprivileged Day during the 1981 season. The quote included a quote on the back from Edwards. In reality, Doc did not want to be bothered so the quote was attributed to him but chosen by Steve and then Co-General Manager Bill Terlecky. It was the first time the Kodak logo was ever put on a trading card and the people at Kodak were not happy. For whatever reason, possibly rain, the cards were never handed out. In March 2011 a copy surfaced at auction. Kevin Johnston of Clubhouse in Rochester sold the card. Kevin was Clubhouse Manager for the Wings in 1981 and had no clue how he received the card. The card was printed on the same sheets as the 1981 WTF set but has a picture cropped different from its WTF counterpart."

I was fortunate to acquire one of these cards from Kevin Johnston:

Bill,

Wow. I have never heard of or seen that card before. Thanks for adding another card to my wantlist..

I wonder how many are left? I would love to find one for my minor league collection. What do you guess for value?

I was thumbing through some cards last night waiting for the Orioles to start and I ran across these & had forgotten I even had them...

Back 7-8 years ago I think I paid about $75 for it but I'm not positive (and I may have been given a price break since I had purchased quite a few items from him over the years).

Default 1974 Brooks Robinson PSA Master Set

Good Sunday. This week I will show you the 1974 entries to the Brooks PSA Master. The 1974 Laughlin All Star is graded as a PSA 9 with 2 PSA 10s out there. Next, is the Topps cards for Brooks in 1974. The regular card is a PSA 10, which is very rare at this grade and expensive. There are 3 other GEMs. The All Star Card with Boyer is a PSA 9 with over 70 peers and 7 GEMs. The Orioles team card at a PSA 9 was difficult to find and a little pricy. There are 3 PSA 10s. The 1974 OPC Brooks and All Star Cards were surprisingly hard to find at these grades. The PSA 6 OPC Brooks card has 10 graded higher. The OPC All Star card is a PSA 8 OC (I have another 8 OC I had graded). There are 3 graded higher. The 1974 Brooks single Stamp is a PSA 9 with 2 graded higher. The Stamp Panel is graded Authentic with only 2 graded with a number grade. Finally, the 1974 Deckle Edge gray and white back. The Gray Back is less rare and is graded as a PSA 8 with 14 peers and 11 graded higher. The rarer white back is tied as highest graded with 2 others. I had this card graded and it is very expensive. The proof is part of the set but does not count in the denominator. My Brooks collection took a turn this week. I completed the Master. It is 100% complete (272 out of 272 on hand; I have as many as 13 items to add). I did some research and found no complete masters with PSA for similar master sets such as Bench, Palmer, Gibson, Mays, Mantle, Clemente, or Aaron. See ya next week with 1975.

I didn't even realize there was a Brooks Robinson thread. Picked this one up recently.

Charlie,

Congrats. Here are a few more 1974 team issued items you might enjoy.

Team issued Postcard (It's considered a 1973/74 issue by postcard collectors)

197374 Postcards 07 - Copy.jpg


Team Issued Tadder Photos

I can't be sure the photo on the right is from 1974. The pose is definitely before 1974, but the name is in very small print, which is common to the 1974 team issued 8x10 photos

Robinson, Brooks (Tadder) 4x5 - Copy.jpg Robinson, Brooks 14 - Copy.jpg


1974 Orioles Publicity Photo Sheet

1974 Tadder 2 - Copy.jpg


1974 O-Pee-Chee Cards

Charlie, You are correct that the OPC cards are much harder to find centered. 1974 OPC cards in general tend to be tough. It took me a long time to complete my Orioles team set. Very happy to find these three with decent borders. Does the PSA master set not include the 1974 OPC team card?

Default OPC Team Card Brooks PSA Master

The Brooks Master does not include the 1974 Team Card. This is one I want to add. Thanks for sharing!

Again, CONGRATS on the completion of the Brooks Master. Now go get that #1 position.

Charlie, why is the 1957 Oriole team card included in the Brooks registry? Looking at the names on the back of the card Brooks isnít pictured or did I miss something?

I feel like Brooks is missing from the 1970 or 71 team photo on the Topps card. Could be wrong... is that one included in registry ? Scott

I think the 71 Topps Orioles card doesnít have Brooks in the photo. Am I correct with that? Scott

Scott,

I believe you are right.

Also, I noticed that the 1971 World Series card with Brooks is included, but some of the other Playoff & World Series cards from 1970-1972 with Brooks in the picture are not. They might be part of what Charlie is working to get added to the PSA Master.

Default Ray Miller passes

I just saw where long time Orioles pitching coach and manager, Ray Miller passed away. He was pitching coach to several great Orioles pitchers, including Jim Palmer, Scott McGregor, Mike Flanagan, Mike Boddicker and Steve Stone.

Here's a couple team issued photos - 8x10 from early in his career and a postcard from the end.

I know I've posted this multi signed ticket before but after John Means' performance yesterday, I thought it was worthy of posting again:

Alan, I was surprised to hear of Miller's passing (who is a member of the Orioles HOF). The news of this was somewhat (ironically) overshadowed by Mean's no-hitter.

Here is a photo of the Orioles 1979 coaching staff...My original intent was to get it signed by all & it's now somewhat saddening knowing that everyone in this picture is now deceased:
