2020 Topps Archives Signatures Series Retired Player Edition - Robin Yount Checklist

I most likely will not include this checklist with the master 2020 checklist only because this set is such a hodgepodge of Topps picking random cards to have signed, not only that but I'm fairly certain that there cards in the set that were also featured last year and possibly the year before.  Regardless this checklist will be to document any cards I can find from the set, since Topps won't release a comprehensive checklist.  Most of Robin's cards are numbered 1 of 1.

2003 Donruss Timeless Treasures HOF Materials Jersey Relic

Year: 2003
Manufacturer: Donruss
Card Set: Timeless Treasures
Card Number: HOF-43
Card Type: Insert Relic
Card Attributes: Relic, Serial numbered
Insert Set: HOF Materials
Relic Type: Jersey
Serial number: 034/100

In 2003 there were almost 100 different baseball card releases. And that's a lot of sets, but what made this year and the next couple so crazy was the explosion of parallels within the sets, inserts, relic, autograph, and relic autograph cards.  Robin has 16 different cards in this set with all the parallels.  He also happens to two cards in the HOF Materials insert set.  He's also featured on card #HOF-18 with a bat relic.  But what is really great about this set and especially this card is the jersey that this swatch is taken from is featured and fully recognized as the source on the back of the card.  Something that is sorely missing in today's, not from any specific event, date, or game,  relic cards.  The card features a very young, maybe still in his teens, Yount in batting pose, although very little of him.  Still this is from a time where relics were still a pretty sought after hit in products and with both his relics in this set being numbered to only 100 fairly rare.

1987 General Mills Booklets PSA Graded 8

Year: 1987
Manufacturer: MSA
Set: General Mills Booklet
Card Number: NNO
Card Type: Food Issue Oddball

Another PSA graded Yount that I got from fellow Yount collector Matt many years ago.  A beautiful hand cut Robin Yount from the 1987 General Mills Booklets.  I'm pretty sure I have an uncut one of these somewhere, but looked in my Excel spreadsheet inventory but don't see it listed.  I'll have to dig deeper to see if I actually do.  Regardless the "card" was cut out of booklet that was inserted in Cherrios and Honey Nut Cheerios in Canada back in 1987.  There were 6 different booklets and each booklet featured 10 players.  Robin's booklet is the AL East booklet and  features Don Mattingly, Ricky Henderson, Kirk Gibson, Eddie Murray, among others.  

Produced by MSA and if you collect Robin Yount you probably recognized this well used airbrushed photo.  A great looking specimen for the Yount collection.
