Not a popcorn horn, but food related. Here's a pizza box from 1971.

Really nice items! I don’t have it, but I’ve also seen a yellow version of the ‘66 WS horn that has the same setup.

Default Baltimore Orioles Memorial Stadium Aisle Markers

Day 84 – 25 March 2024
I have shown some of these before but thought to show again. I really enjoy the memorial stadium aisle markers. These were placed in the concrete steps to mark the seating row. The upper deck version is slightly thinner, less weight. The lower seating area had a thicker version and it was heavier. As you see, I have several key ones relating to the numbers of our Hall of Famers (4 Weaver, 8 Ripken, 22 Palmer). The 6 is for Blair, 7 for Belanger, and 19 for McNally but I paid for Unitas (ha!). Would love to find #33, #20 and of course #5. These make great displays and can be pricey. Hard to find, too.

Default Baltimore Orioles License Plates

Day 85 – 26 March 2024
I really enjoy the Oriole license plates. Today, I am showing you some from the 1954 season (top), 1966 WS Champs and I think the black block letter version is from the 1950s/60s. The top two are 12 inches long while the smaller black one is about 6 inches or so. These make great displays, are not easy to find and can be pricey. I am always looking for the orange thinner “It can be done in 61” license plate. I know of two out there but can’t convince them it would look better on my wall than theirs. Ha! Is anyone aware of a license plate for 1969, 1970 or 1971 WS? I will show other plates tomorrow.

Default Baltimore Orioles License Plates

Day 86 – 27 March 2024
As a continuation of yesterday, here are some license plates from recent years. The top one I like because it is still in the original packing material. This one is about 6 inches long and I think from the 1980s or 1990s. The middle one is a favorite celebrating our 1983 WS championship. It is 12 inches long. The bottom one I think is from the 1990s or so and measures 12 inches. Has anyone seen a plate for 1979 WS?

I really like the plates although I have none. The 54 and 83 are my favorites.

You have some great looking displayable O’s items. Of course you “need” this example; hopefully the other person will give it up 😎.

Default Mike Cuellar 1972 Esso Oil Latin American Foundry Example

Day 87 – 28 March 2024
One of my favorite Oriole pitchers from the 1970s was Mike Cuellar. I often think him and McNally don’t get enough respect outside of us old timers that remember their greatness firsthand. Brooks annd Cuellar did a lot of damage together over the years to AL teams…post season, too. Anyway, today I am showing you a very unique piece from 1972 made of solid brass and weighs 2.6 pounds and measures 8 inches. It is about a quarter inch thick. This is a foundry template for a 1972 Esso Oil Latin American player coin. I believe 7 latin players (Oliva, Marichal, Aparicio, Cedeno, Cuellar, Millan, Montanez). The players were celebrated with a coin handed out at the Esso Gas Stations in Puerto Rico. I was lucky to find this one, which I mounted on an orange circular board. Surprised to see Clemente was not part of this grouping. When I received my Cuellar, it was pretty raw but after some time with some “cleaners” I got it to shine. I am also showing you the actual coin graded in a PSA slab. I really enjoy the “Miguel” Cuellar version.

I’m definitely a Cuellar fan, but you’re right that he doesn’t get enough credit along with McNally. That is one cool piece that you have there.

Day 88 – 29 March 2024
Today I am showing you my 1971 Brooks Robinson Salesman Sample with pants along with some other items I will address over the next few days. I was lucky to find the Salesman Sample recently and am very happy with it. It is a Rawlings double knit, size 44. I believe it was for the 1971 WS and with the same collection is a uniform for Rennie Stennett from the Pirates. The jersey has a flat cut tail with B. Robinson on the back along with #5. The first initial was due to Frank Robinson being on the team but not for long as he was traded after the 1971 season. This would be the first year for the Orioles wearing a knit uniform. The pants have a zipper fly with pockets in the back. They are pretty small.

Along with the Salesman Sample, you will see a custom made helmet I had made with the bill shaved down and the old Bird. I was fortunate to find this and later had Brooks sign the top of the bill along the orange. It looks nice displayed. I would love to find an original.

I don’t think Steve is on Net54, but could possibly be incorrect. He has an amazing collection of mainly GU equipment, but has an assortment of other very rare pieces. Really good guy…

Day 90 – 31 March 2024
Also displayed with the Salesman Sample and fake helmet, is a Game Used signed Brooks Robinson Hillerich & Bradsby model MC44 bat, length 34.5 inches, weight 32.3 ounces made of ash with a standard finish. The bat was used between 1965 – 1968. It has a lot of use / character. The bat is cracked. The handle has been wrapped with a cork grip. The number 5 is on the knob with 32 for the weight. Brooks signed it in blue and marked it “HOF 1983 Game Used.” Both the signature and bat authenticity were done by PSA. It Graded a PSA GU 8.

Default Brooks Robinson Endorsed Items

Day 91 – 1 April 2024
I really enjoy odd stuff that Brooks endorsed. Today, I am showing you two items. A Palmgard Protective Fielder’s Glove for baseball or softball. It was made in Randallstown, MD. The glove has some type of special gripping material on the index finger and palm. It is size XL. Brooks signed it with his HoF 83 inscription. The backside of the box provides more details. Additionally, I am showing a Markwort Sporting Goods Company, St. LoPine Tar Rag. The Pine Tar Rag has some type of relationship with the Palmgard Glove. I did not have this one signed. Both items were endorsed by Brooksie so they must work. Should I break them open and try them out?

I think George Brett would have been a better spokesperson for the pine tar rag. It’s unbelievable that a “special” rag was marketed for applying pine tar. There is no way my old man would have bought that for me back when I was young and playing baseball!

Was pleased to pick up this Cal Ripken Sr. game worn road jersey from the 1985 season this past weekend. 1985 was the first year Sr. went to #7 (was originally #47) and jersey is complete with the cigarette pack breast pocket customization:

Default Brooks Robinson - Ajay Sports

Day 92 – 2 April 2024
Like yesterday, another item endorsed by Brooks was a line of products from Ajay Sports (Delavan, Wisconsin). I believe there are other items but I only have the two items shown. The baseball lacing needle was used for replacing the leather material on a glove. You would use the needle to help with replacing the lacing. You can see Brooks facsimile signature at the top. Also shown is a softball scorebook for 52 games along with instructions. Again, you see Brooks’ signature at the top. Does anyone else have other Ajay Sports items?

Default 1970 Dayton Dailey News Brooks Roninson

Day 93 – 3 April 2024
A couple weeks ago I showed you the Baltimore News Post newspaper cards and failed to show the 1970 Dayton Daily News Brooks Robinson Hand Cut bubble gumless card. This example is #154 in the set of over 320 or so cards. The set includes different sports. I am tracking about 206 baseball cards in the set and many have 2 variations with differences on their playing statistics (some are from 1969 and others are from 1970). Technically, this set is from 1970 and 1971. I started this set but don’t plan to finish it as the cards are just do darn hard to find and can be pricey. I have quite a few HoF’ers though (Aaron, Mays, Rose, and Brock). I believe there are as many as 13 Orioles in the set including the stars from the late 1960s and early 1970s (Palmer, Cuellar, Frank, Boog and others to include Brooks). I have Brooks, Davey Johnson and Cuellar on hand. I have a checklist but it is not formal. The Brooks copy is not in the best shape but it rare and 1/1 graded. I was fortunate to add this to the PSA Master Set. I have never seen another but there are others out there. You can see the Brooks card is from 1970 given his 1969 stats are provided.

Default 1970-71 Dayton Daily News

Charlie,

I love this set. You are correct, it is a very difficult set to find. Even the common players. I've been working on my Orioles set for nearly 40 years. I'm missing four from 1970 and one from 1971. I've personally found the lower numbers show up more than the higher numbers. Unfortunately, many O's are in the 150 number range.

There are 13 Orioles in the 1970 set and 2 Orioles in the 1971 set.

1970 - 5 Frank Robinson, 34 Boog Powell, 52 Dave McNally, 56 Mike Cuellar, 82 Jim Palmer, 107 Davey Johnson, 143 Merv Rettenmund, 151 Don Buford, 154 Brooks Robinson, 157 Paul Blair, 158 Andy Etchebarren, 159 Mark Belanger and 160 Elrod Hendricks

1971 - 5 Frank Robinson and 34 Boog Powell

Day 94 - 4 April 2024
Anyway need a match? I know these have been discussed before but I really enjoy the 1970 Oriole Matchbook set. I have displayed the 24 different players. Obviously, my favorite is Brooks but I really enjoy the other stars (Palmer, McNally, Powell, Frank, Cuellar, Blair and Belanger). This was a tough set to complete. I worked pretty hard on this set and over a year or so, completed it. Along the way, I picked up some extras. I am always looking for nicer copies. On the inside of the “book” there is a schedule for the Orioles home games. I always wondered about the phone number (301-243-9800)…was that for a smokey bar or to get your tickets? I hated to flatten the Brooks and add it to my PSA Master Set but did it (sorry). The book was not in the best shape so please forgive me. I thought it would grade higher but it came back as a PSA 2.5. I am sure I could top that but can’t bring myself to ruining another matchbook.

Alan, nice looking collection of the Orioles DND cards. I have not found any for a few months. Added Mays and Aaron a few months ago and can’t seem to find any others. Love the Frank.

Default Ted Patterson Orioles Scrapbook

Day 95 – 5 April 2024
Recently, I found a scrapbook from the late Ted Patterson who was a newscaster, sportscaster and host of various talk shows. He served with the Orioles as a broadcaster in the early 1980s. Ted was also a writer (he published the Baltimore Orioles – 40 years of Magic from 33 Street to Camden Yards). He had a huge sports memorabilia collection. Apparently, he was very aggressive in his collection activities…I heard a few stories how he would approach the players for autographs that was not well received). He died in 2021 and upon his death, a friend told me his estate included truckloads of items that were removed from his home and spread across the Maryland area and probably nationally. I will share some of the items in the scrapbook over the next few days. I would like to start with a few Brooks Robinson items. The most impressive item or at least to me is a look pamphlet titled “To Tomorrow’s Oriole.” The pamphlet is for new Oriole players. Brooks opens with wecoming comments and the tells the new players what to expect, how to handle yourself, your preparation, work ethic and other advice. The pamphlet is signed. Can’t discern the year but imagine it is from the mid-1960s. It measures 7.25 x 4 inches. It is on a thicker card stock and has 12 pages. Has anyone seen this before? You could take this same advice and apply it today with our Orioles or in your own day to day life.

Mark, I thought it was one of a kind! Not really, but did not see before.

Default Ted Patters Scrapbook Orioles

Day 96 – 6 April 2024
In the Ted Patterson. scrapbook were a number of team issued postcards and other postcards. Many of the post cards I have seen before while others I have not seen. A few pictures are provided. You’ll notice some of the post cards were written to “Ted.”

I was friends with Ted over the last 10-12 years or so of his life and was fortunate to see his collection in person on more than one occasion.....I really don't know where to begin as to how impressive it was.....

Default Baltimore Orioles - Ted Patterson Scrapbook

Day 97 – 7 April 2024
In the Patterson scrapbook I found a few interesting photographs of Brooks. The 5 x 7 inch photo featuring Brooks, Frank, Boog (with signature) along with Aparicio (with signature). I am not sure who #55 (assuming a coach) is but guess someone here will know. The team photo along the 3d base shows the Orioles and I believe this is 1969 World Series (some details are on the back but it has a bit of glue on it; not wanting to remove it. Here is a picture of Brooks at bat (on the back, it says Daryl Norenberg, Pomona, CA). Another picture shows Brooks at a podium assuming he is receiving an award…his smile! Some pretty cool photos.

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

You may be able to read the name off of #55 Jersey with a magnifying glass on the 1969 WS photo.
