Description

From the days of the stellar pitching, airtight defense and the historic edifice right smack in the middle of the Waverly neighborhood, the Baltimore Orioles are flying high in this lot of (6) eclectic souvenirs. Headlining the lot is a "Memorial Stadium" street sign that hung in the vicinity of the stadium and directed motorists to the hallowed venue. Also included is a post-1985 stadium sign detailing the (then) new "no alcohol" policy; as well as a vintage Orioles flagship station sign, a 1983 display and (2) vintage pennants. More on our website.

Memorial Stadium Street Sign measuring 24x30 with rounded corners, this sturdy metallic sign was once affixed to a street pole in the vicinity of Memorial Stadium. The standard green background is accented by an arrow, “MEMORIAL Stadium” in reflecting white and an image of the unmistakable home to Brooks, Earl and Unitas. There are three holes (as manufactured) to facilitate hanging, and the item shows a series of minor surface flaws and marks inherent to outdoor display.

Memorial Stadium Sign spared from the since-demolished venue, this 18x10 thick plastic sign was once affixed to an outside wall and reads: “Bottles, Cans, and Disposable Containers are Prohibited by the Park Board Park Rule No. 5: No Alcoholic Beverages may be brought onto Park Property. The sign was displayed sometime after the start of the 1985 season.

WITH Orioles Radio Sign a 20-3/4 x 18-3/4” metallic sign hawking the former flagship station of the Baltimore Orioles. The sign is affected by rust, surface marks and a small hole.

1983 Orioles “Thank You” Sign a 20 x 25-7/8” sign with a thick Styrofoam lining. Displayed in October, 1983, the signed reads: “Thanks to our greatest fans, from your greatest fans” and features the facsimile signatures of (31) members of that year’s eventual World Series champions. The sign shows surface marks, edge wear and moisture-induced stains on the reverse.

Pennants includes a rare 1950s gray felt full-size pennant with uncracked appliqué and original tassels intact (EX with color fading and pinholes from previous display); and a 1966 “American League Champions” full-size pennant with a scroll-type listing of (27) team members (including Aparicio, Palmer, B. Robinson and F. Robinson). Item presents as (EX-MT) with uncracked appliqué and tiny pinholes from previous display.
