ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
ONLY ONE IN STOCK! Frank Robinson was a heck of a ball player. He played for five teams from 1956 to 1976, becoming the only player to be named Most Valuable Player (MVP) of both the the NL and AL, he was named the NL MVP after leading the Cincinnati Reds to the pennant in 1961 and was named the AL MVP in 1966 with the Baltimore Orioles after winning the Triple Crown. Robinson helped lead the Orioles to the first two World Series titles in franchise history in 1966 and 1970, and was named the Series MVP in 1966 after leading the Orioles to a four-game sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers. A 14x All-Star, Robinson batted .300 nine times, hit 30 home runs eleven times, and led his league in slugging four times and in runs scored three times. His 586 career home runs ranked fourth in major league history at the time of his retirement. And in 1975, he became the first black manager in major league history. Quite a baseball resume...more than enough to be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility (1982). This official MLB baseball was hand-signed by Frank before his recent passing and includes his special "HOF 82" inscription.
