1991 Milwaukee Brewers Police - Elm Grove PD

Year: 1991
Set: Milwaukee Brewers Police
Town/Police Dept: Elm Grove PD and Kanavas Landscape Mgmt. Inc.
Card Number: NNO

If your a Brewers collector there's nothing quite as iconic as the Police sets issued from 1982 to fairly recently.  The Milwaukee Police sets were given out at games as an SGA, but there were lots of smaller police departments that participated all over Wisconsin.  As a matter of fact from 1982 to 1993 Robin has over 600 different cards to chase!  And while the list here on the blog is pretty conprehensive it is by no means complete.  As a matter of fact this 1991 Elm Grove PD was not on the list.  1991 also marks the year that the sets went to the conventional trading card size.  And it makes storing these cards a lot easier.

2019 Topps Allen and Ginter Gold Framed Hot Box Parallel

Year: 2019
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Allen and Ginter
Card Number: 352
Card Type: Parallel
Parallel Set: Hot Box Gold Frame
Card Attributes: SP

Been slacking over here on the blog.  I've been keeping up with the new releases, but haven't had a whole lot of time to sit down and write a new card post.  I've got a lot of new 2019 cards to post about, some in hand right now others still sitting over at COMC waiting to be shipped to me after Black Friday.

But I picked this beauty up over at Cardbarrel.com a few months back as part of a larger order.  These gold boarder parallel cards are the hot box parallels.  So basically if you were trying to build a set and got a hot box you're kind of screwed because every base card in the box is one of these gold border parallels.  They look really nice in hand and the gold border design really makes the card pop. Backs are still the same.

Robin is featured with Christian Yelich in the Lasting Legacies insert.  So far I've found the base and two parallels.  I'll update the checklist if other parallels show up and I'll add images as I find them.

2019 Topps Allen and Ginter - Ginter Greats insert

Year: 2019
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Allen and Ginter
Card Number: GG-50
Card Type: Insert
 Insert Set: Ginter Greats

Robin is not only featured again in this years Allen and Ginter, but he's also featured in the Ginter Greats insert set.  Every year Topps has at least one fairly large inserts set in Ginter.  This year there are two with Greats and Star Signs, both having 50 subjects.  Overall the design is nice and true to the brand.  In this set players are featured in alphabetically order so Robin gets the honor of having the last post in the set.

2002 Topps St. Michael Hospital 1982 Reprint SGA

Year: 2002
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: St Michael SGA
Card Number: 435?


I love my fellow Brewers collector's.  Andy aka All Time Brewers on Twitter was posting some of his finds from a recent large lot of Brewers cards he picked up and asked if anyone knew anything about this card.  Lots of people chimed in.  This card was part of a 6 card set given away at game sometime in 2002.  You can see the whole checklist here.  I jokingly asked if he came across another one of these in his lot I'd love to trade for it.  He sent me a message back offering me the card PWE since I was a big Yount guy.  I'm working on a thank you package as we speak.  I know these cards shouldn't be that rare as I assume thousands were handed out at the game, but I've only seen a couple of these pop up over the years.  So thanks to Andy for adding a great and hard to find oddball to my Yount collection.
