Franchise Founded: 1894

Team Collectibility Rating: 7.5


Overview

Although the organization suffered through some down times in last few decades, the Baltimore Orioles have amassed three World Series titles and look to be on the way back to the top. Over the years the franchise has fielded some iconic names in baseball and have built their current roster with plenty of young talent. This has made Baltimore an appealing hobby option for fans and collectors.

The Baltimore Orioles organization dates back to 1954 when they took up residence in Memorial Stadium. However, the roots of the club can actually be traced to 1894. They played one season as the Milwaukee Brewers before moving to St. Louis and playing for 52 years as the St. Louis Browns. In 1953, multiple business entities in the city of Baltimore, Maryland, formed an ownership group. They successfully purchased the team, moved them to Baltimore and renamed the team after Maryland's state bird, the oriole.

The foundation of the organization was quickly laid with an emphasis on fundamental baseball skills. Known as the "Oriole Way," the team's management instituted a policy of developing young talent with a sound understanding and refinement of basic skills. This ran contrary to the league norm of rushing promising talent to the big leagues as quickly as possible.

As a result of this organization-wide philosophy, the Orioles have successfully produced several Rookie of the Year award recipients, including Ron Hanson (1960), Curt Blefary (1965), Al Bumbry (1973), Eddie Murray (1977), Cal Ripken Jr. (1982) and Gregg Olsen (1989).

By 1960, the team was becoming a routine pennant contender. Finally, in 1966, all of these club attributes proved a success when the Orioles won their first World Series championship. Not resting on their laurels, the team maintained its competitiveness and won another title in 1970.

The Orioles perfected the concept of the "Oriole Way" by stocking their farm system with young talent. The players were taught every aspect of the game, in the exact same way and manner. This made roster replacements due to injury, trades or free agency a seamless process for the managers and coaches at the big league level.

In 1982, the son of longtime Orioles' organization coach, Cal Ripken, joined the team. Cal Ripken Jr. would add to the team's list of Rookie of the Year winners and help the team capture their third World Series title the following year. Ripken Jr. went on to break the consecutive games played streak held by Lou Gehrig that was widely believed to be unbreakable.

While the team has not seen much postseason success since that 1983 title, the organization is returning to a place of respectability in the highly competitive A.L. East. Bolstered by a roster of young talent, Orioles fans are poised to enjoy a competitive team for years to come.

Collectors have plenty of options when it comes to merchandise and collectibles for the Baltimore Orioles.
