Nicknamed "The Human Vacuum Cleaner" or "Mr. Hoover", Brooks Robinson is considered one of the greatest defensive third basemen in major league history. He won 16 consecutive Gold Glove Awards during his career, tied with pitcher Jim Kaat for the second most all-time for any player at any position. Robinson was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983.
This Prosport Creations figurine was signed in blue by Robinson. It is numbered 451/2,183 but there are only an estimated 800 still in existence after a fire at the Prosport Creations warehouse in the early 1990's destroyed most of their stock.
