By the way I really like the scroll pennant as well; very nice!
Thank you, looking forward to posting more interesting stuff as I find it.

Default Brooks Robinson Pick Ups - 1968 All Star Action Sticker and Post Cereal Complete Box

Good morning. I picked these two items up recently. I posted these on a couple of FB pages so apologies if you saw them. The 1962 Post Cereal Box is darn near perfect. This box featuring Brooks was never assembled. The surface, corners and color is amazing. I looked at it for about a month and knew I had to have it. I would love to assemble the box for display. Any thoughts? No worries, I will leave "as is." The 1968 Topps All Star Brooks with his pal Roberto is also pretty nice. The complete sticker is not as rare as the complete box but something I have wanted for a long time. I have the Brooks single panel with McDowell and Perez graded but the complete sticker sheet eluded me.

Default Question about 62 Box

A odd ball card dealer showed it to me at Chantilly and then I met him at the Philly show to purchase. I help him with his mortgage, light bill, alimony, etc. routinely. He has the things no one else has.

Oh I think I know which dealer that is...Is his first name Steve? Unfortunately I didn't get to the Philly Show last weekend (as an aside, I'd leave the box flat).

Great box and Iíd be showing that on every site I belonged to including a genealogy site if I belonged to one. Are the stickers perforated? Never owned one of them.

Charlie,

VERY NICE items you picked up. I still donít have a complete AS Panel and of course the cereal box is unused so thatís an excellent find.

Clint, the stickers are perforated. I have a couple of the Brooks with Perez graded.

Roarform, not sure your first nameÖSteve is correct. I will not assemble the box but it would be fun.

Thanks, Mark

Good morning,

Here's a 1976 O's Line-Up card featuring Reggie Jackson in his one season with the team. Signed by Earl Weaver but unfortunately, no Brooks.

Default 1975 Japan NST Mr Baseball JMC 1 Nagashima #59 and #62

For Sale or Trade: I have 2 extra 1975 Japan NST cards of Brooks required for the PSA Master. The one in civilian clothes (#59) has a population of 7. The one in uniform (#62) has a population of 5. These are very hard to find. If interested, I would sell them both at a reduced cost. I had 4 (2 each) graded and paid a good amount for each. I worked really hard to find these and once I found one the others popped upÖone all the way from Japan. Email me if interested in a sale or trade:

The Orioles last published a media guide in 2018 (due to printing/shipping costs as they got bigger & bigger, information being available on-line, etc.).

My collection/reference library included the majority of their guides and I was sad to see them go, mainly because I enjoy referring to them.

A friend of mine who works for the Orioles knew this and for my birthday, he specially printed up guides (the information is on a stick) from 2019-2021 to keep me current:

Bill,

I can't tell you how jealous I am. I have every Orioles media guide from 1954-2018. I also have many of the season summary guides, especially nice run from the 60's.

I'm with you. Very sad to see printed publications coming to an end. First it was media guides, then yearbooks and now programs. I talk to a lot of people at spring training that really miss the media guides. I can understand the cost argument, but it seems that the majority of the work is putting it together. If the info is on a stick, I for one would gladly pre-order a copy and pay extra based upon the number of orders.

I've tried printing my own copies, but haven't had much luck with formatting on my personal computer. What size are they?

Congrats Bill. Put me first on the list if you ever decide to part with them.

Default One more off the list

On a happy note. I just picked up another program off my list in the attempt to find programs from all the Orioles minor league affiliates 1954-present. I mentioned before how tough it is to find Stockton Ports memorabilia.

Received this nice 1970 Stockton Ports program today. While the 1969 Ports won the league championship with an 81-59 record, the 1970 team did a complete reverse finishing 54-86. The Ports averaged less than 500 fans per game their last three years as an O's affiliate. The list of future Orioles included Enos Cabell, Don Hood, Jesse Jefferson, David Johnson (1975 Pitcher), and Tim Nordbrook.

Oh, it's on my want list!! lol

I know there was no All Star Game last season but since the game returns tonight, please indulge me to repost something that I originally posted over a year ago (# 1452) since some may have missed it (particularly since it's the 20th anniversary of Cal Jr. winning his 2nd ASG MVP Award).

Charly Steiner of ESPN did the Play by Play of the '01 game on radio and had a memorable call from when CRJ homered "Did He Do It?...Did He Do It?...He Did!" You hear that sound clip often around All Star Game time...

Anyways in 2005, I had the idea that I'd like to get Steiner to sign an Official '01 ASG Ball with that very inscription. At that point, he was doing radio with the Yankees and I had an Orioles contact get me in the Radio Press Box pregame one Sunday afternoon with the hopes of getting him to sign my ball.

When I approached him he couldn't have been nicer and was thrilled that I wanted to include him as part of my collection (even Cal thought it was an unique piece to sign):

I have this half-decent 1971 Topps Brooks Robinson. It's a great card, love the 71s and love Brooksie as any sane vintage collector should. Anyway, curious about the inner-framing of this card, the part that holds the photograph itself. Notice how the white border is o/c to the left and the right border has some color leak?



So I was curious if this was a card issue or something else and I went and checked other 71 BRs and the best ones don't have this issue. And then I looked at the font of his name and realized my card has poor registration.

Oh well. Still an awesome card lol!

Jason,

Think a lot of cards back in the day, including the 71ís, have registration issues. Some of the colors just didnít align properly.

Your card looks great IMO. Love the Brooksie Ď71 card!

I am a Pirates fan at heart but always had a thing for those classic Oís including Brooks. Had this signed at a card show some years back and enjoyed chatting with him for a while

Today is National Hot Dog Day and I thought I'd post this limited edition 10 Minute Phone Card (#'d out of 500) put out by Esskay in 1998

Thank you. I hadnít seen those buttons before, and some cursory internet searches didnít turn up much, so that was one of the reasons I bid on the lot. I feel like I did well on it.

Can you give me more info on the buttons? I was guessing late 60s/early 70s. No clue on who issued them.

I probably canít offer much help on the pinbacks, but I think they are early Ď70ís, some collectors say Ď71, and as far as I know are unlicensed. No one that I have discussed these with knows much specifics. I know thereís a Frank and Palmer Oriole example as well. I do know they are super cool looking!

There have been several threads on Net54 about those pins. The consensus seems to feel they are from 1971. Many of them go for several hundred dollars when they show up on eBay.

Here are the four Orioles in the set. They are very nice looking.

Default Latest Oís pickups

So hereís a pic of my latest orioles pickups and my nokona w2 catchers mask. I used to have as a kid the black white and orange hat it had the leather band and a elastic back I wore it so much till one day I went to take it off and all I came away with was the brim as the threads had deteriorated due to sweat rain humidity. I found an exact replacement that fits 😂 the other hats are a Roman pro fitted and the orioles triple A club Rochester's pillbox hat . Iíd love to find a game worn hat from the 70s I wouldnít care who wore it as long as it fit!

Keep the Oís hat collection going. I know GU caps come up for sale now and then so if you keep searching Iím sure youíll find one.

In regard to the Orioles what all do you collect?

Thanks ! As far as orioles stuff, really things that tug at my memories . I grew up going to silver stadium all the time so I saw so many future orioles players as well as getting that yearly visit exhibition game. so I pick up pennants and hats programs and scorecards and photoís although mostly red wings but my collections all over the place as I love baseball in general! I stopped collecting cards years ago . I had a huge collection of baseball football and hockey cards from the early 70s to the mid eighties along with other ephemera and I went off to the army left all my stuff at my moms which then burned up in a fire . Sucked but when I started to get back into cards I was overwhelmed I grew up with Topps and fleer and bowman. So I just pick up non card stuff.

At one time I had one of those Rochester pillbox hats (I believe it was Mike Young's) & I regret selling it.

Default Future orioles farm team and HOF Rabbit Maranville

Found this today . I know itís not orioles but the Rochester ball team will be their future farm club . This 1927 scorecard has hall of famer Rabbit Maranville listed and the front of the card talks about the future silver stadium . Pretty neat piece of baseball and local history. Also note the schedule Rochester plays Baltimore several times .

I'm looking for some thoughts and/or opinions on a early 1954 Orioles spring training program currently on eBay. The program is being sold by a reputable seller and at first glance can be very confusing. The seller admitted to not knowing much about it. Orioles programs being my thing, I offered him some help. Here's the auction title, along with the info I provided and a couple pics of the program.


orig., possible 1953/1954 BALTIMORE ORIOLES BASEBALL TEAM 1st ever GAME PROGRAM

I have some information for you about the program.

This is definitely not the Orioles 1st program after their move from St. Louis to Baltimore in 1954. However, I do believe the program is from 1954. The Orioles spring training site in 1954 was Yuma, AZ. After completing their schedule in Arizona, the Orioles and Cubs played 10 games from March 27 - April 7, across the south, starting in Albuquerque, NM and ending in New Orleans. The Orioles finished their spring training in St. Louis against the Cardinals on April 10-11.

I believe your program is from April 4, when the Orioles and Cubs played in Mobile, AL. It was fairly common for teams to use their regular season programs for these exhibition games and either insert a roster sheet or glue rosters into the program itself. Some teams were also known to reuse previous years programs. The Bluefield Orioles often put a sticker with the new year over the old year. Iím guessing Mobile either reused some old 1953 programs or hadnít received the new 1954 programs, before April 4, and glued the rosters into the old programs.

I've attached a pics of the Orioles March 29-30,1954 spring training program from Dallas, TX and the April 10-11 program from St. Louis.

Hope this helps.


s-l1601.jpg s-l1600.jpg


I was hoping the seller would update the listing to give buyers a better understanding, that while an early O's program, it's definitely not the first one. The seller did take a small piece of the info and updated the description in the listing, but in my opinion, still left it open to buyers thinking the program might be something it isn't. The seller isn't lying, just leaving some things for the buyer to guess at.

Should I be disappointed in the lack of full disclosure or chalk it up to a seller trying to create as much interest as possible in an item?

Full disclosure - I'm interested in the program, because I love all programs related to the Orioles history and it is an early spring training program.


Here are the two 1954 Orioles spring training programs I referenced, from Dallas and st. Louis

Here's an example of a 1974 Bluefield Orioles program being reused in 1975, with a sticker over the year.

Default Brooks proof or something...

Alright, Brooks fans. Here is a mystery card. I have already asked a few of you and did not get a resounding answer so hoping one of you can tell me what this is. On one side, there is a handwritten "Brooks Robinson" on it, suronded by a beveled lines around it. Then there is some stamped numbering with a made in USA stamped marking. On the other side you barely see Brooks picture. The picure is really hard to see with the naked eye...you can see much better with the iphone pic. The picture side is surrounded by raised marking and some numbers. I do not think it is a proof of any of his cards, but who knows. Please take a look below:

A fellow Ripken collector who attended the most recent National saw a dealer there from Charlotte and inquired if he had items related to Cal's time there.

The dealer reached down from under his table and pulled out a few things with the most unique thing being a 16x24 team photo board in which a fan back in 1980 took pictures of the team members, then had them sign them and affixed them to this board.

Fortunately the collector thought the item fit better in my collection and a deal was made:
