Holy smokes, MK. Amazing.

Speaking of pinbacks -- the next hour should be an interesting one re: eBay. The winner had better gloat shortly after the hammer drops; what an incredible piece.

It's over! What an incredible price for a pin from the 1950s. Paul won't gloat.

Dr. M strikes again. I saw a couple of board members were in heavy on it; you have my empathy, Gents.

As an aside, I messaged the individual selling it -- and congratulated them on the impending sale. Her response was awesome. Besides being blown away at the response (and the honesty of a few people advising her to watch the auction play out) -- she reminisced about her grandfather buying it for her, because she was in love with Brooksie's "beautiful blue eyes". She said she just wanted $50 for it; hopefully, it helps fund something grand for her (courtesy of her Grandfather).

Loved the story, thought I'd share. Congrats, Paul.

Yep there were a few of us in on that one Aaron! Its hard to justify why the pin went so high but I believe it might be because these were the first brooks robinson pins seen, could also be because my feeling was they spelled his middle name wrong COLBERT instead of CALBERT and was probably pulled from production very early. No one will ever know why but it was a great pin..

Can't you guys cut a Brooksie collector a break! When I first saw the pin I thought I'd put a bid in that was a "sure" win ($305). Man, that bid didn't last long. So, how much was the winning bidder willing to pay for the pin; a bit more?!?

By the way, on the O's picture pack photo's the early one's list Brooks with the middle name as "Colbert" as well. They later corrected the mistake.

Just a side note, I've never seen this pin before and I've been collecting Brooks for quite a while now. Congrats on the GREAT addition!

Mark,
Im sure his bid was much higher but thats the way it goes sometimes. As for never seeing that pin before that is why it went so high. All of us hadnt seen it before. The other version the corrected one with his name spelled right is also just as hard to find. Here is a photo for everyone who needs to know what we are talking about.

Actually another one of these Robinson pins did show up on eBay about a year ago. It had a few scratches on the surface, and a small ribbon attached. Don't remember exactly, but I believe it went in the $500-$600 range.

Hi Mike,
are we talking about the same robinson pin that just sold or the other one? I dont remember seeing that one a year ago. But Im getting older and miss a few things now and then! LOL
