Films on Friday: The Brooks Robinson Collection


Since we just celebrated Brooks Robinson Night on Wednesday, here’s a great video about his baseball collection that he donated to charity in 2015. The collection earned $1.44 million for the Constance & Brooks Robinson Charitable Foundation. The highest earning piece was his 1964 MVP award, which sold for $155,350. Included in the collection was a platter presented to him on Brooks Robinson Night in Arlington, Texas, in 1973. Alas, the puppy and the duck were not available for the auction.

Happy Friday!
