Learned today that Jerry Walker a member of the famed Orioles "Kiddie Korps" passed away last weekend at the age of 85.

Interestingly, I never knew that Walker was the youngest pitcher to ever start (and win) an All Star Game back in 1959 (the second game played in LA) at the age of 18....More interestingly, this fact was missed last evening during Fox's broadcast from their list of rookie pitchers who started an ASG.

Mr. Walker was good to autograph collectors and one of my favorite pieces he signed for me over the years was this photo:

Nice pic, Mark. Brooks was a slick dresser. Agree…looks like Gorsuch.

Day 199 – 18 July 2024
Does anyone else enjoy vintage Oriole mugs? Here is an obscure one from F.R. Woods in Cooperstown, NY. The front has the Hartzell Bird. The back says Home of Baseball. The gold trim around the mug is nice.

Mark,

Great player and one of my favorites. I met him once and he was kind enough to let my son take a picture with him. He was a real class act even though everyone was vying for his time.

Great thread for a player tribute.

Default Brooks Robinson New Hall of Fame

Day 200 – 19 July 2024
Recently, the Baseball Hall of Fame created some new pins for HoF members. Below is the Brooks Robinson new pin. I think the pin is nice. I believe they are about $10 on the HoF website plus shipping. Ebay has a few for about $24.

Default Baltimore Orioles Banks

Day 201 – 20 July 2024
Nothing too exciting today. A few of my “banks” related to the Baltimore Orioles. The Farmers Bank and Trust Company Bank of Hanover is pretty rare and from the 1970s. The white ball I believe is from the 1970s, too. The National Bohemian can I believe is from the 1970s. The Bobblehead type Bird is more recent. The plastic hat I believe is from the 1970s. There is a crystal ball shaped bank out there I am looking for. Show us your banks.

Your experience is pretty typical with any encounter with Brooks. Such a down to earth great person. He’s definitely missed…

I have one head bank that just has Baltimore Orioles on the bottom portion.

Really neat looking HOF pin…

Default Brooks Robinson Wooden Sign

Day 202 – 21 July 2024
The Wooden “Robinson #5” sign I picked up from the Cooperstown Hall of Fame store. It is new but really like the craftmanship. It is pretty heavy and looks old.
