Stuff from the closet.

It's been awhile since I posted here.  I really haven't been adding to the collection in a while.  There just isn't that much stuff out there and Mr. Yount seems to be going through a renaissance and prices are up so it's hard to find anything affordable that's a premium.  So I've dipped into the closets to pull out some goodies.

First  we have my 3000 hit certificate.  Nope I wasn't there.  I was in class at the time, but I got this off of ebay for cheap.  I've seen ones with a full unused ticket go for big bucks but this is a nice keep sake.  I remember all the Wisconsin papers had Yount on the front page and front of the sports section the next day.

In the 80's Topps was experiementing with some retro ideas.  Here we see the 1988 and 1989 Topps Coins.

I think I have a 1990 coin somewhere too but I couldn't find it for the post.
I remember buying a few packs of these back in the day but never getting anybody really good.

Stay tuned as I pull more Younts from the Closet.
