The Brooks Robinson Patch Project

Pete at http://dropped3rdstrike.blogspot.com/ gave me an interesting idea; why not try to complete the 2009 Topps Legends of the Game Commemorative Patches of Brooks Robinson. Arranged properly, the letters spell out 'Vacuum Cleaner.' This is a reference to the 1970 World Series between the O's and Reds where, virtually any ball hit was caught by Brooks! There is an awesome autographed photo at AAA Collectibles in Matthews depicting Brooks laid out in the infield dirt robbing Johnny Bench of a base hit. Sit down Johnny. If anyone wants to pony up $200 for my 29th birthday in September, and make that picture mine... well... I'd love you forever hahaha.


Anyway, to begin this interesting process, I purchased 3 of the Brooks patches off of Ebay, all for under $15 each. I have, so far: N, U, U. Pete has a C coming my way i believe. Lets get MOVING! Go Brooks! Thanks for the idea Pete!!
