Signed 1968 "TOPS IN SPORTS" Banquet Program: Jimmie Dykes Bauer B. ROBINSON

For 50+ years, the Maryland Professional Baseball Players Association sponsored one of the sporting world's most prestigious (and fun) events: the "Tops In Sports" awards banquet, honoring the best in professional sports with an emphasis on major and minor league baseball, Baltimore-centric athletes, and big hitters... culminating in the association's "Sultan of Swat" award, named for hometown hero Babe Ruth and typically presented to one all-time great (i.e., Jimmie Foxx, Hank Greenberg) and the previous season's biggest bat (i.e., Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Willie Mays). It was also a big opportunity for fans to rub shoulders with the greatest players in history... and get an autograph or two... or ten.

Offered is a signed 15th Annual "Tops In Sports" banquet program (8.5” x 11”), dated "January 12, 1968", honors Carl Yastrzemski as the 1967 "Sultan of Swat" and is signed by: O's manager Hank Bauer (D), Jimmie Dykes (D. 1976), O's ROY Tom Phoebus, HOF Brooks Robinson, broadcaster , NBA referee, and Ft.
