Spectacular Baltimore Orioles road jersey belonging to one of the most popular players in Baltimore Orioles history and one of the game's most legendary Hall of Famers - third baseman Brooks Robinson.  Inducted into the Hall of Fame in just his second year of eligibility, Robinson was obviously known for his defense, winning the Gold Glove an astonishing sixteen times!  The 1975 season was the final Gold Glove campaign for Brooksie, though it is safe to say that this jersey saw its share of infield dirt as Robinson snared hard-hit balls at the hot corner throughout the American League.

Outstanding Wilson size 42 button-down jersey carries all the necessary stitching and tags, and remains in outstanding condition.  Wear to the stitching is evident, as is a little "ring around the collar."  Robinson has autographed the jersey at the tail.

The jersey is consigned from the collection of former Orioles broadcaster and author Ted Patterson, a longtime friend of Brooks Robinson.  An outstanding storyteller, Ted often cited Robinson, along with Bob Feller, as his personal favorites, and Ted's "collecting room" housed an impressive Brooks Robinson display that included jerseys, bats, and dozens of autographed items and personal letters.  Patterson was, in that way, no different than the typical Orioles fan, astonished at Robinson's amazing glovework and overall play during his amazing 23-year career, Robinson holding the record (along with Carl Yastrzemski) for the longest tenure with a single baseball team.

The jersey has been graded A10 by MEARS, an outstanding example of a late-career jersey from a Baltimore Orioles legend.
