Commishbob started blogging this set on Feb 13 with his favorite player, #472 Brooks Robinson. Each post discusses a card and what he remembers of the player or team. Here's a key piece for Brooks.
As I mentioned Brooks is my favorite baseball player. My twin sons are named for him and Jim Palmer. We've met Brooks several times and he's as nice as his reputation. When a small story appeared in the Baltimore Sun about my sons carrying the names of Oriole stars Brooks came up with my address and sent us signed pictures.
Brooks also holds a special place in my heart as the first guy to reply to questions I sent as a 13 year-old back in 1985. (Scan of his answers in my 1973 Johnny Pro Orioles profile.) Plus, he wore uniform #5--win/win.
