Brooks Robinson- Successfully Treated for Cancer

Whenever modern baseball is smacked with another black eye, I always seem to wax nostalgic about players from my youth and some of the legendary greats like Brooks Robinson. Tomorrow is promised to no one and I am glad Brooks is apparantely going to be with us a few more years. Always a willing signer, and one of the tru ambassadors of the game. Living legends deserve our respect and prayers when need be because when they die, it seems like a little piece of baseball dies too. Here's to you Brooks. Baltimore Sun Article

From a collectibles stand point, he has a plethora of material to choose from including both raw and graded copies of his 1957 Topps RC. In VG to VGEx, which is a very respectable condition for cards of this vintage, copies can be had from $100 to $150.

Because of his longevity, and willingness to sign, his autograph prices are very reasonable and single signed baseballs from a reputable dealer can be had for around $65. (I use Rich Altman's Hollywood Collectibles)
