Musing about my five collecting interests: all things Orioles, 50's Baseball, team publications, Japanese cards and even some football and hockey.
You might find some beautiful women, soccer stuff, presidential pins and life advice from time to time. I don't charge extra for any of those.

A Brooks Robinson Sunday Tribute
Two reasons for posting all these cards of my favorite baseball player. First of all today is Brooks Robinson's 77th birthday and, more importantly, I read a story on the Baltimore Sun website yesterday that talked about how his health is improving and how well he seems to be doing. That's really great news!
1957 Topps Brooks Robinson rookie card. Posted several times but it never gets old.
1963 Fleer BRobby. Great card from a fun set I loved discovering as a kid.
A Brooksie Upper Deck from some set or another.
A Donruss Brooks. These last two came to me last summer from CaptKirk42
A signed Perez Steele Great Moments
1961 Topps All Star card. Awesome card being awesome!
1960 Leaf. Brooks looking like a halo'd St. Brooks!
1993 Ted Williams set Brooks
Brooks and yours truly at the old Arlington Stadium circa 1982
And finally, the 'Original' Brooks Robinson and my son, also named Brooks Robinson at a show in the late 90s.
