2013 Yount Silver Slugger Award card.

Every year I get pretty excited about the possibility of growing the Yount collection with new cards.  I've got most of Robin's base cards from his playing days, so when new cards come out I'm always eager to be able to add something new.

This year in 2013 Topps Series 1 Robin has a few cards to chase, 4 so far by my count and I have already secured most of these.  I'll post about his Chasing History cards when I get the other two parallels in my grubby little hands.  But he also has a card in the Silver Slugger Manu-relic set.

And this card is pretty sweet.  It's also very heavy and very thick!

The scans really don't do the card justice and for a manufactured relic it's pretty sweet. Kind of like those manufactured bat barrels from a few years ago.
