I know I posted this 2005 Sammy Sosa game used helmet in the past but I recently had it signed via a private signing he did earlier in the month & I thought it came out nicely:

Default 1960-1963 Orioles Scrapbook Hand Cut Baltimore News Post - Trade

Greetings. I have about 30 extra 1961 and 16 or so 1962 Orioles Baltimore News Post (BNP) scrapbook cards. The downside of my extra scrapbook cards is they are glued on a sheet of construction paper back to back. I did my best to cut around them so they can appear in a binder and you can see both sides. I tried to separate one but damaged the card. I am not interested in selling. I would prefer to trade for missing 1960, 1961, 1962 and 1963 BNP. I am short 1 for 61, 5 and 13 for 1962 and 1963, respectively. I am missing 50 for 1960.

Here is my list of shortages…send me your list if interested along with your list of extras willing to trade.

1960 - 10 on hand so missing 50 (let me know if you have any…can provide list)
1961 - missing Hal Brown
1962 - missing Cosgrove, Hall, Ward and Williams
1963 - missing Aparico, Barber, Bertania, Breechen, Brown, Etch, Hall, D. Johnson, Lau, McNally, Narum, Brooks, Starrette

Email me at charles.strite@yahoo.com if interested in trading.

I don't believe I shared this back in 2020 but what reminded me of it was the other day was the 26th anniversary of the event.

Sachio Kinugasa of the Hiroshima Karp (1965-1977) held the "world" record for most consecutive games played at 2215 & Cal was set to pass that milestone in Kansas City during a weekend series.

My buddy and I flew out to it (Kinugasa was in attendance as well) & during the record breaking game, I was able to obtain a foul ball that Chris Hoiles hit (which is a story in itself).

Another story, but post game we were fortunate to take a shuttle van back to the hotel with Kinugasa & I asked him to sign the ball...He accommodated me by signing it on the sweet spot and added 2215 underneath.

A couple years later I had Cal sign it and asked that he add "2216" underneath as well.

While I've seen baseballs signed by both, I've never seen one that was actually used in that game (as a side note Mr. Kinugasa unfortunately passed away in 2018):

Default Baltimore Orioles Stickers

Good afternoon. I think shared a post on old Oriole stickers in the past. Recently, I found one that has eluded me for a few years. Just found this week, actually...you'll see below the 19 in sticker published back in 1961 ("It can be done in 1961"). I have seen a picture with the Oriole's manager (Paul Richards) holding the sticker but never the sticker itself. I will likly frame this one. Also, you see many other stickers. I have a few others but here are the ones displayed together. I am always looking for others. If anyone has any extra collecting dust, keep me in mind. Enjoy!

Default Another Oriole hits for the cycle

Here's an addition to post #265, which highlighted the five Orioles that have hit for the cycle in O's history. Brooks Robinson, Cal Ripken Jr, Aubrey Huff, Felix Pie and Jonathan Villar.

You can add Austin Hays to that list. It took Hays only 6 innings last night to complete the feat, in the Orioles rain shortened win over the Nationals.

Congrats Austin. One of the really nice guys at spring training.

Alan:

You are a correct in saying that Hays is a nice guy...

Here is my complete ticket from Cal's cycle game back in '84 (second Oriole to do so):



I believe someone on this thread has a stub from Brooks' cycle game if memory serves me right.

Nice ticket. In this day and age of paperless tickets, gems like that are going to be harder and harder to find.

Alan: you're right about that! It's probably been three years since I've used a paper ticket to get into Camden Yards...

34 years ago today was the game (at Fenway) when Cal played in his 1000th consecutive game (I believe Alan was there)......Here is their original lineup card that Saturday afternoon; signed by manager Frank Robinson (Cal homered as well in a losing cause)....I taped the game off the radio on a cassette tape that I need to locate one of these days

we all read yesterday about it being Bobby Bonilla Day, but did you know that the Orioles owe him $500k annually as well (through 2028 I believe)? Here are a couple Oriole related Bobby Bo items from my collection:
