Another Brooks Card


I'd love to know where Donruss got the pictures they used for their Past Time Pennants set. It features some of the best photography I've ever seen on a card. Here's a Brooks Robinson photo that I've never seen and believe me, I've seen plenty. My scanner didn't nearly do this one justice. 

That Orioles uniform is my favorite, due in large part to the great bird head patch. Just a hint of stirrups shows. And Memorial Stadium, a place I loved to visit all rounds out this great card.

Brooks celebrated his 75th birthday on Friday. Here's to many more!
