    1950's-70's Original Photographs from The Brooks Robinson Collection Lot of 75. A fine retrospective of the career of Brooks Robinson, this grouping includes seventy-five original photographs from the 1940's to 1970's. Most are news service photographs measuring approximately 8x10," as opposed to personal snapshots (one). Majority are from the 1960's, but includes a 13x15" framed team photo of an early Fire Department team Robinson's father played for. The bonus is that it also pictures a very young bat boy named Brooks Robinson Jr.! Certainly his earliest baseball collectible piece, and direct from his own estate, this goes well beyond being a "rookie" piece.

    Lot also includes a 1959 Vancouver Mounties team-signed piece, a Babe Ruth photo inscribed to Robinson by Dorothy Ruth, a Hillendale Country Club 1969 membership card, one personal snapshot, and the rest are unsigned wire photos and other shots. Letter of provenance from Brooks Robinson.
