Default Chicken Lid - Brooks

Any one else have a Brooks English’s Chicken Lid? These are tough to find. Wish I could go back in time and find a few.

Charlie,

See post #2730. In my opinion, the Brooks Robinson and Ross Grimsley lids are the two toughest. Maybe just my experience.

Default 1964 Rawlings Big 8

Good evening. One of my favorite sets and boxes is the 1964 Big 8. This box includes 2 four player panels or 8 individual cards. Here, I show th me 4 player panel and the individual card. I am a huge fan of this set. I am # 2 on the PSA Registry with this set. Hope to some day find the complete box. There are similar premium colored photos with a few variations.

Was looking through some items last evening & ran across this Charlotte O's SGA poster from their 40th anniversary celebration weekend back in 2016...

We had the good fortune to be invited to a small party given by the Crockett family the day prior & took this picture of Eddie & Jimmie Schaffer (who is credited for making him into a swatch hitter in '76).

It’s was licensed by MLB. It is sealed and I think it was sold at Wards or Sears in the early 1970s. It’s either a shirt or pajama top. It has Brook”s number 5 on front and I am unsure if “Robinson” is printed across back shoulders.

Default Did you know Brooks was a business man?

Back in the 60'S & 70'S Brooksipersted a restaurant. Brooks Robinson’s Gorsuch House was located at 511 Gorsuch Avenue, off of Greenmount between 32nd and 33rd streets. Brooks Robinson was a part-owner from around 1964 to 1977 Waverly’s Gorsuch House originally shared a name with another Oriole (and Robinson) before Brooks Robinson entered into partial ownership with former Orioles coach Eddie Robinson in the early 1960s. The menu had many Maryland favorites. Here are a couple items from the restaurant…a matchbooks and napkin. Would love to find a glass ash tray.

Default It can be done in 61

NFS - Not directly Brooks related. The Orioles were ready for a big year in 1961 and their motto was, “It can be done in 61.” Here, I show a larger bumper sticker, napkin and a Christmas Card. Are any of you familiar with other related items with this slogan?

Default 1969 Globe Imports Checkerboard Back Card

NFS - Recently I found the 1969 Globe Import Checkerboard Back Card, which completes my Brooks Robinson PSA Master Set. I have 303 of the 303 items in the set. There are two versions of this card…plain back and the one below, the Checkerboard. Only two are graded. The other one graded is a PSA 8. I thought there was only one of these but through a little persistence, I found one to complete the set. Ironically, this is my least favorite item in the Brooks Robinson PSA Master Set. This will be the second time I completed the Brooks Master Set. God help me if something else is added, which I can’t find.

Charlie,

Any info why/when they made a checkerboard back one in addition to the common blank back ones?

Thanks,
Rich

Default 1969 Globe Import

Rich, no idea on the Checkerboard variation. Is out 18 months ago or so I learned about. A guy asked me if interested. I told him not really, then it was added to the Registry. I then sadly became interested. I believe each player in the “deck” has a variation. I am guessing they are very rare. I actually am not a fan but can’t not have something Brooks. Ha.

Default 1950s Orioles Decal

I found this at a flea market this weekend. I thought it was from the 1950s but I've never seen it before. It is about 3.5 inches square. Can anyone say where this is from?

Default The Schooner - Brooks Robinson

NFS - I just got this Brooks item. It is a copy of the spring 1972 National Brewing Company's newsletter/booklet. Its cover story is about the Orioles 1971 trip to Japan. The cover photo show Brooks running towards second base after he has hit a homerun in one of the Japanese ballparks. The inside has several pages of stories about the trip and a handful of photos of Orioles players, wives, and Japanese hosts.

It's a Burger Chef in store poster from 1977 (American League version) promoting their "Triple Play Funmeal" and showing all the player discs in the set.

I've never seen one before & thought it would be neat to share (Orioles are on the bottom row):

Would love to have that last one with Garvey.
That isn't the one with the smaller photos similar to the 80s ASG programs?
I saw one featured on a Pete Rose website and don't recall what the cover looked like.

Default Japanese items

Good evening,

I was recently able to acquire a couple more Japanese collectibles.

The first one is from 1978 and is about the All-Star Game. Brooks and Jim Palmer are on the cover:

1978 Japanese Magazine with Brooks and Jim Palmer.jpg

The second is a wall calendar that features Cal and Ken Griffey Jr. Most people have probably seen the photo used on the front of the calendar from a magazine from Japan that featured it at the same time. Although the inside features MLB players, Cal is only on the cover:

Default Mike Young passes away

I just saw where former Orioles outfielder Mike Young passed away. He played for the Orioles from 1982-1987, ending his career in 1989 after playing for three other teams. From 1984-1987, Mike was mostly an everyday player. His best season for the Orioles was in 1985, when he hit 28 HRs and drove in 81 runs.

Here's a few items to remember Mike

I recently purchased a small collection of Rochester Red Wings memorabilia and included was this Camera Day SGA piece from August of 1980 (measures 3.5" x 5.5" folded; that folds out to a team photo). I sent the scans to Alan to see if he had ever seen one and he shared that he had not & that it might be worthwhile sharing with the board (too bad it wasn't from 1981):




Another neat piece that was included in this collection was this:

Signed Polaroid, CA. 1970.

Unfortunately not sure where it was taken, looks like possibly a bar.

Signed Polaroid, CA. 1970.

Unfortunately not sure where it was taken, looks like possibly a bar.
Like the snapshot photo. Looks really good signed as well.

We've all signed our credit card receipts loosey-goosey like that after being a bit over-served at the bar. Just saying.

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980s.

Thanks Mark, Really like it signed too, it Contrasts really well. And that's coming from someone who doesn't love autos on photos very often.

Default Orioles Ground Crew Passes

Good afternoon,

I was recently able to acquire some Orioles ground crew passes from 1969-1974 (the 1973 pass is laminated). Included was a pass to the 1969 ALCS and World Series.

Default RIP Dick Hall

Dick Hall, a pitcher on both the 1966 and 1970 Orioles WS Champions, passed away yesterday at 92. A few years ago he was kind enough to sign a card for me through the mail.

Mike:

Those are very cool. I don't know if the name Linda Warehime means anything to you but she was easily the most recognizable name on the Grounds Crew during that time period (1968-75).

She was well known for sweeping the bases and occasionally swatting an umpire or visiting team third base coach playfully on the rear once she completed her duties.

So cool! I don’t recall ever seeing a pass for the grounds crew AND this is extra special to have Linda Warehime‘s passes. What other grounds crew member can anyone name?!?
