    Description

    1977 Baltimore Orioles Presentational Bound Volumes Lot of 2 from The Brooks Robinson Collection. After twenty-three seasons of Hall of Fame service, Robinson was properly feted on September 18, 1977 with "Thanks, Brooks" Day at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium. The ceremony lasted about an hour, and Robinson was showered with praise and gifts from a new car to a Hawaiian vacation to the Gold Gloves that appear in this auction. Among the gifts from the Orioles franchise was this pair of bound volumes compiling the entirety of Robinson's stat line from all 2,935 games (inclusive of post-season) in which he appeared. Gorgeous hand-rendered calligraphic pages open the books, with printed stat sheets to follow. It's a one-of-a-kind assembly that provides the mathematical proof of Robinson's immortality. Letter of provenance from Brooks Robinson.
