Description



This impressive assortment has inherent eye-appeal on two fronts: the imagery of renowned Baltimore photographer Morton Tadder and the bold autographs of some of baseball’s most revered legends. Includes:

Photographs

1-2) 20x16 color print of an aerial view on Memorial Stadium during a 1990 Orioles night game. Tadder’s vantage point allowed for the edifice’s memorial wall (and the diamond just beyond) to be the focal point. Also visible is the layout of sizable portions of the Waverly and Ednor Gardens neighborhoods

3) 20x16 sepia-toned print of the 1961 Baltimore Orioles, featuring a youthful Brooks Robinson at the end of the front row

4) 20x16 color print of a 1984 dugout celebration at Memorial Stadium. The photo depicts Orioles third baseman Wayne Gross returning to the dugout to the greetings of Sakata, Altobelli, Miller, Murray, the bat boy and Singleton

5-9) one 20x16 and (4) 17x11 color prints of Brooks Robinson batting during the 1970 World Series (as evidenced by Johnny Bench behind the plate and the black-and-orange bunting draped along the lower deck’s façade)

10) 16x20 color print of Robinson leaping from his defensive position in his Orioles road uniform

11) 20x16 color print of an aerial view of Memorial Stadium. The image dates to 1985, as evidenced by the additional scoreboard in right-center field and Eastern High School on the near side of 33rd Street. The photo was most likely captured on opening day, as the stadium and its parking lots are filled to capacity

12) 14x11 color print of the image used on the 1966 World Series program (Memorial Stadium version)

13) 10x8 color print of Brooks Robinson, Hank Bauer and Frank Robinson in the Orioles dugout. The image is from 1966 or 1967. All three subjects have signed in blue Sharpie (all “10” strength) with both Robinsons having inscribed their Hall of Fame induction dates and Bauer adding “Mgr of the Year 1966”

Signed Index Cards ballpoint signatures (unless otherwise noted) that average (“9”) quality. Includes: Chandler, Coveleski, Dickey, Groat, Haines, Herman, (2) Hunter, Kaline, Marquard (black marker), Mussina and B. Robinson. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentications.
