    Description

    1954-55 High School Yearbooks (2) from The Brooks Robinson Collection. Was Robinson always beloved by his peers? We've got the proof here. Both hardcover volumes from his high school alma mater Little Rock (AR) Central High School are filled with handwritten messages from dozens upon dozens of friends and admirers, all calling the future Hall of Famer "a swell guy" or something to that effect. One young lady writes, "Maybe I should be asking you for your autograph, but I shall wait until you become a famous baseball player." Robinson is pictured in individual photos and with the basketball team--remarkably, his school didn't field a baseball team. He writes his name on the interior cover of each, effectively early autographs. Books exhibit moderate handling and storage wear, but no faults of any significance. Letter of provenance from Brooks Robinson.
