    Description

    1977 Brooks Robinson Game Worn Baltimore Orioles Road Uniform. It's one of just two uniforms saved for posterity by the man whose 2,935 appearances for the Orioles (inclusive of post-season play) ranks second only to Iron Man Cal Ripken, Jr. in franchise history. Robinson recorded the final two hits of his career tally of 2,848 in a June 3, 1977 visit to the Kansas City Royals, and it is likely that this is the uniform he wore for those last base knocks.

    The classic road grey knit jersey style presents a scripted "Orioles" and number "5" applied to the chest in orange and black tackle twill, with "Robinson 5" similarly applied to verso. Interior collar is labeled "Wilson [size] 42," while lower left front tail holds the proper "77 1" embroidered swatch.

    Matching pants hold "Wilson [size] 36" manufacturer's label at interior waistband, joined by an embroidered swatch reporting, "5 77 25 1." Solid game wear is evident throughout. As Robinson made only twenty-four appearances in 1977, it is likely that home and road uniforms on offer in this auction are the only two models he utilized that final year of his Hall of Fame career. Letter of provenance from Brooks Robinson. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
