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.

Frank Robinson played for five teams from 1956 to 1976, and became the only player to win league MVP honors in both the National and American Leagues. He won the Triple Crown, was a member of two teams that won the World Series (the 1966 and 1970 Baltimore Orioles), and amassed the fourth-most career home runs at the time of his retirement (he is currently ninth). Robinson was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.

This October 10, 1966 issue of Sports Illustrated was signed in silver by both Brooks and Frank Robinson. Each player included their "HOF" inscriptions. This item includes a JSA sticker and COA.
