The Parkway Pastimes Collection

We have been collecting game used equipment and sports memorabilia for over 25 years.  Our collection is centered on the professional sports teams of Baltimore and Washington, D.C. and the University of Maryland.  While some collectors, dealers and non-collecting friends have seen parts of our collection, it has been difficult to display large parts of it.  We have also thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities we have had over the years to see other collections.  While none of these collections have been written about in books, they have all been interesting and unique in their own way. 

We thought creating a website to showcase our collection, and eventually items from other Baltimore/Washington/University of Maryland collections, would be a satisfying and worthwhile endeavor.  Hopefully, this website will allow collectors and sports fans to see many interesting and historical sports items and will become a cyber meeting place for people with a common interest in Baltimore/Washington/UM sports. 

This section of the site contains photos and brief descriptions of many of the items in our collection.  We will continue to add items as time allows.  If you have an interest in a specific player or type of item that you do not see, please contact us.  If we have such an item, we will add it to the site as soon as possible.

While only an estimate, our collection has over 300 Orioles, 35 Senators, 30 Capitals, 30 Redskins, 20 Bullets and 19 Colts game used jerseys; 225 game used baseball bats; 135 game used baseball hats; 45 baseball jackets; 25 game used baseball helmets; 20 game used baseball gloves; and 22 football game used helmets. On the non-game used side, the collection includes hundreds of pennants, programs, yearbooks and photographs.  There are numerous pieces of original art, historic tickets, game used bases and baseballs.  We also have many press pins, buttons and stadium sold items.  Memorial Stadium, Griffith Stadium and Camden Yards are amply represented by signs, display items, seats and even 4 original lockers from Memorial Stadium.  We also have the original visiting team dugout bench from Memorial Stadium. Some of our favorite items include all of our Brooks Robinson game used collection(over 30 jerseys, jackets, hats, helmets and bats), our collection of championship rings and trophies, our 1800s Baltimore "base ball" artifacts,  and our used Lenny Bias University of Maryland warm-up jackets, pants, shooting shirt, sneakers and team jackets.  There are also over 20 Hall of Fame players from various sports represented in our game used collection.

We hope you enjoy looking at photos of these items.
