It's Brooksie's birthday!

And in honor of my favorite player I'm posting a bunch of his cards and memorabilia that I've posted over time. Brooks Robinson was born on May 18th, 1937 in Little Rock, Arkansas.

  • AL MVP (1964)
  • 1966 All-Star Game MVP
  • 1970 World Series MVP
  • 16-time AL Gold Glove Winner (1960-1975)
  • AL At Bats Leader (1961)
  • AL RBI Leader (1964)
  • 20-Home Run Seasons: 6 (1962, 1964, 1966, 1967, 1969 & 1971)
  • 100 RBI Seasons: 2 (1964 & 1966)
  • Won two World Series with the Baltimore Orioles (1966 & 1970)
