1990 Topps Sticker

Year: 1990
Manufacturer: Topps 
Set: Stickers
Card Number: 54
Card Type: Base

The 1990 Topps Sticker set is interesting, especially from a checklist stand point.  The base card which I consider the player superstar side with stats to be the primary player for the card.  Especially since he's the only player named on the card or sticker.  Then the back or front depends on how you look at the cards featured either one, or what was more common in the set, two smaller stickers, which were also numbered, but the players were not identified.  The two players also featured on the card are Mike LaValliere on sticker #133 and Greg Swindell on sticker 214.

On the Radar - 2018 Topps Museum Collection

Robin is featured in one insert set in this year's Museum Collection.  That set has 2 parallels.  All the cards are very limited as the base card is numbered to 15 or less.  I guess we'll find out how many base cards Robin has when the product goes live and they start showing up.  I'll archive images of those cards here as well.

2009 Upper Deck Goudey Relic

Year: 2009
Card Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Card Set: Goudey
Card Number: GM-RY
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Goudey Memorabilia
Relic Type: Jersey
Card Attributes: Jersey Relic


Let's get back into the swing of things with a great little relic from Upper Deck's last issue of the Goudey tribute set from 2009.   The 2009 set was a homage to the 1934 World Wide Gum set and also featured a homage to the 1935 4 in 1's.  Robin has a base SP card in the set and the parallels,  as well as, being featured in a couple of the 4 in 1's and this lovely relic insert.  I'm a sucker for a good gimmick and I do love that the relic opening is a die-cut G even if the swatch is just plain gray.

2005 Topps Pristine Legends Uncirculated Encased Refractor

Year: 2005
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Pristine Legends
Card Number: 43
Card Type: Uncirculated Encased Refractor Parallel
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 543/549

Wow been a crazy month for me work wise.  But as May comes to a close my schedule will be slowing way down.  What better way to get back into the swing of things than with a nice shiny card. 2005 Topps Pristine would be the last year Topps would produce the brand.  It had an interesting box scheme.  Each box had 5 packs.  Each pack had one uncirculated card and then another pack.  Inside the inner pack was a relic card and another pack.  And inside that inner pack were the base cards.   Robin has a few cards in this set including an auto, a relic,  a base card, and a bunch of parallel cards.   My apologies for the blurriness of the card, but these encased cards scan horribly.  There is an nice little write up on the back that mentions team mate Hank Aaron and Robin's HOF career stats.

1993 Pacific Spanish


Year: 1993
Manufacturer: Pacific
Set: Flagship (Spanish)
Card Number: 167
Card Type: Base

Continuing from last post...  Part of Colbey's afforable group break was a box of Pacific's inaugural release in 1993. Pacific attempted to fill niche that Topps had tried before by marketing their set specifically to the Spanish speaking markets.   I already had a couple copies of this card, but it was nice to receive a pack fresh copy for the collection as well.  I like the overall design of the card.  Pacific used shading and angles to try and give the card a more 3D feel.  The cards are colorful and bright and the back features a second player photo.  Pacific also introduced, what would become the very popular, prism cards with this set and had a couple cool inserts  that were not easy to pull falling only about 1 to 2 per box.
