The only Oriole each year was Milt Pappas. The only way to differentiate the two years is the addition on the 1965 of reference to a game in 1964 and stats updates.

1964 and 1965
I've always liked the looks of these cards; probably the colors w/the B&W player picture is just a nice setup. Wonder why Milt was the only Oriole in the game?

Day 44 (February 13, 2020 Ė 044)

I donít have many of the small Oriole schedules, but this is a fairly uncommon 1972 Baltimore Orioles schedule put out by Crown gasoline. The schedule pictures Brooks and Paul Blair the great Oriole center fielder.

I had a 1972 Orioles Special Parking permit out so I might as well post that today. Itís a permit that the Orioles used for just one game; this particular permit was not used.

Quitcrab, very nice Brooks disc. Here's a 1982 FBI Ken Singleton disc with the complete box bottom. I assume the 1981 FBI Jim Palmer will forever be on my want list.

Scott,

You are right these lids don't show up that often. I also have the Jim Palmer lid. They have been associated with 7-Eleven stores in some references. Does anyone know if they were distributed through 7-Eleven or somewhere else?

Mike,

Nice box. I have the Ken Singleton box also, but have had the 1981 Jim Palmer on my wantlist as well for a long time. It just never shows up.

Default 1965 Elmira Pioneers

Today, I'm highlighting the 1965 Elmira Pioneers. The Pioneers were the AA affiliate of the Orioles from 1962-1968. The 1965 team was led by Earl Weaver and finished 83-55. Some notable future Major Leaguers included Mark Belanger, Dave Leonhard, Larry Haney, Bill Dillman and Lou Pinella.

Bill,

That is one tough item to find. I've been looking for one forever. I guess chocolate milk wasn't as popular as I remember as a kid.

Great item...

Alan,

Enjoying the minor league items that you are posting. Some I have never even heard of before. It is nice that some of these guys made the bigs and some of those made a tremendous contribution to the Baltimore Orioles.

Day 45 (February 14, 2020 Ė 045)

The Orioles had a number of different companies, typically local, that would sponsor events and also advertise their company; Bethlehem Steel was one of those companies. The mill used to employee thousands of individuals in their Sparrows Point mill outside of Baltimore. In Memorial Stadium they had a few Bethlehem Steel Family night events over the years and typically offered some type of program or memorabilia type item with their company name well represented. The below is a 1969 Bethlehem Steel Family Night booklet with some of the Orioles players pictured. The pictures look similar to the Orioles picture pack photos, but on the back it has interesting facts about the steel company.

Scott,

Did the sealed package with the 3D card also have patches contained? I have one of if the 3Dís sealed, like it came in the cereal box which I was going to picture sometime in the future, but have only seen a picture of one sealed in the package like yours. Very nice piece!

Headed to Atlanta today for a cheer competition (CHEERSPORT). Daughter cheers for Infinity All Stars Kings and Queens (Coed 5 for you in the know). Hope to avoid any and all injuries.

Default 1964 Martin Company Family Night set

Mark,

Your Bethlehem Steel post reminded me of a set from another Baltimore area company, Martin Marietta. Here the link to Bob Lemke's post from a few years ago. I believe the set is complete at 14. A program was also done for that night.

Won in a recent auctionóSuper excited about these 1930ís Orioles minor league autographed photos.

Also won a 1957 scorecard, which I was very pleasantly surprised to learn has been scored (sort of) and was from a game against the Yankees. Brooks rode the pine behind HOF George Kell. Mantle, Berra and Ford are HOF from the Yankees side.

Based on what I found on baseballreference.com, it looks like the game was played August 9, 1957.

Alan,

I guess thatís considered a program that I posted from 1970 earlier (post #185) w/Belanger on the cover. Shame thatís the last one. I know I have the photos from 1970 as well, but I think thatís my extent.

I do appreciate the years of these programs and the photo booklet years as well. Thatís a great program you have in your collection; hopefully one day Iíll find one. Itís just nice to know they do exist and I know what they look like too. I know Iíll be checking back on this thread for reference material in the future.

I remember reading about Martin Family Night items a few years ago in Bobís post. That is definitely a RARE set. I do have the Brooks, but itís not in very good shape, but at least I have it. I also ďneedĒ the program!

Thanks so much for sharing your awesome collection.

I donít have much in way of unopened cards, but hereís a Topps 1978 Rack Pack of 39 cards with Brooks showing in the middle of the group. This is his Topps Record Breaker card for most consecutive seasons with one club; the last Topps card issued while he was playing.

Default Brooks Robinson

Here's the 1968 Orioles Yearbook with a great cover of Brooks and Frank. One of my favorites. I also have an original Morton Tadder photo from what I assume is the same photo shoot, but didn't make the cut. On a side note, a conversation at spring training with Todd Olszewski, the Orioles team photographer, confirmed that the Orioles won't be printing either a media guide or yearbook this year. Sad times for guys like me that enjoy those types of items.

Default 1968 Miami Marlins

Today's featured minor league team is the 1968 Miami Marlins. The Marlins were an Orioles A affiliate in the Florida State League. While the Marlins posted an impressive 87-55, they produced only a couple future O's, Marcelino Lopez and Johnny Oates. Jim Palmer did also pitch in 2 games for the Marlins that year.

For some reason, the 1968 program doesn't show up as often as some of the other Marlins programs and was one of the tougher ones for me to pick up.

Alan,

I didn't know if you noticed or not, but the picture I uploaded in post #739 showed Miami Stadium and has "THE SPRING TRAINING HOME OF THE BALTIMORE ORIOLES", but above reads "HOME OF THE MARLINS".

Really don't know much about the Marlins that were an Orioles affiliate in Florida so I appreciate you posting the program and the photo.

Alan & Mark:

Such a rich tradition between the Orioles and the city of Miami! One year prior, Cal Ripken Sr. managed the Marlins and here is a Miami Herald Press Photo of him:



Bill Ripken liked this photo so much, he asked to borrow it to include it in his new book "State of Play," which came out earlier this week.

Here is also a team signed ball from that '67 Marlins club....Amazing that Jim Palmer in just the prior October was pitching in the World Series, was sent down there to work on his ailing shoulder in the warm weather (started five games and pitched to a 2.00 ERA)

Great photo. I think stuff from the minor leagues have long been overlooked by most collectors.

This was from the card shop I worked at when I was a kid. The owner made this with cards laminated to the cardboard. It was made in 1979. It was supposed to help the customers date cards and different issues. He gave it to me a couple years ago. The lamination has slipped and a couple of the cards have been lost but Iíll replace them one day. Anyways right in the middle is 1975 Mr Robinson.

Day 47 (February 16, 2020 Ė 047)

Rawlings put out a Trade Digest for companies that distributed their athletic equipment. The one pictured today is a Rawlings Trade Digest for Distributors of Rawlings Athletic Equipment dated February of 1965 (VOL. 8, NO. 2). The Trade Digest pictures the í64 MVPís Brooks Robinson and Ken Boyer on the cover (in their suits with a Rawlings glove in hand) with the statement ďwhoís on third?Ē I donít see these type of items very often and I would think are relatively scarce. Thereís another example of Robinson and Boyer pictured on a Trade Digest as well, but donít have that particular example.

After the 1964 MVP awards for Brooks and Boyer there were several magazines that featured the two on the cover in 1965. The following is one of them:

Back in '86 I found this pint sized carton at an area convenience store (I recall it being the only Ripken they had) and when I got home, I carefully put a small hole in the bottom to empty the milk to keep the carton intact.

Shortly thereafter, I wrote a letter to Beatrice Meadow Gold asking for a flat, unused carton and they (thankfully) accommodated me.

Default Orioles collection

Some random thoughts on why Iím enjoying this thread so much, beyond the fact itís Orioles related.

While some items being posted could be classified as high end big ticket items, many are ordinary items that have meaning to the contributor. Iíve been amazed at all the interesting stories behind some items. Many, if not most, of my posts are items that my kids arenít going to retire on, but thatís ok with me. I donít get many opportunities to share my collection, with those who would appreciate it. Iím sure thatís the case with most of us.

Close to 40 yrs ago now, I got rid of most of my 1950ís Ė 1960ís Topps sets and yes even a 1952 Mickey Mantle, to concentrate on what had meaning to me, the Orioles. Iíve never collected with a dollar sign attached to items. If I liked it, I added it to the mix. Do I wish I still had that Mantle, I sold for $800 (a good price at the time)? Not for my collection, because it didnít mean anything to me then and still doesnít. I wouldnít change a thing. I have Orioles collecting buddies that Iíve been trading and dealing with for years and years and canít remember the last time money exchanged hands between us. Remember itís just a hobby.

As I ponder what to post each day, I hope you are enjoying my items as much as I am yours. Mark, thanks so much for letting me connect with others that I probably wouldnít have otherwise. Iíve even acquired some new items because of the thread, that I greatly appreciate. As we continue throughout the year, donít be afraid to share an item, because you feel itís not interesting enough.

Default Orioles Newsletters

For today's offering, a couple random newsletters from 1969. I don't have a ton of these in my collection, but will pick them up cheap at shows when I come across them.

It would be interesting to see how the fans would vote now on the All-time Orioles teams. I'm betting Brooks would still lead the way.

Frank Robinson was certainly the missing piece to that first World Series team..

Bill,

Great back story to the Ripken carton; so interesting. I'm surprised they answered your request, but I'm glad they did.

Alan,

Thanks for your perspective on collecting. Mine is much the same as yours since I collect what I enjoy, not really what is valuable even though some pieces may be worth decent money to others. Take the piece I posted today; I don't think it's valuable, but I personally love the Rawlings Trade Digest.

While I enjoy seeing other individuals collection of cards, like Mantle, Clemente, Koufax, etc. I just doing get the same enjoyment of collecting them myself. I know I followed the Clemente thread all last year and was a great time seeing all of the items posted.

So thankful others are contributing to the thread and personally I love seeing all the great Oriole items posted. I'm glad that we can connect as collectors and help one another out.

I'll stick with the Cal Ripken Jr. milk carton theme & post these half pint cartons from Rutters Convenience Store (1989).....They also offered a half gallon carton as well..They too generously assisted me with flat/un-used examples.

Day 48 (February 17, 2020 Ė 048)

If Iím not mistaken the item today is a placemat (I think). Seems like one anyway; letís go with it. This is from 1968 and pictures many drawings of the Oriole players illustrated by artist Jack Havey. There are some popular Baltimore Orioles players from 1954 to 1968 pictured.

Those look like fun items to collect. Do you have the pics handy of the flat/unused cartons?

Default 1970 USO Flyer

Here's an interesting item. I know nothing about it and hope that someone out there can provide more information. My best guess is, it's a flyer promoting a baseball themed USO show and involved players touring Vietnam. It looks like players from the Orioles and Pittsburgh Pirates were involved. There is a date written on it, 26 Nov 1970.

Any other thoughts or information is appreciated.

Alan,

Unsure if you saw this or not, but this site talks about the USO and MLB. In an article called, 1968 All-Star Special: Talking Baseball in Vietnam. The site I viewed it on was slpl.org
