2014 Topps Commemorative Rookie Class Ring Silver

Card Manufacturer: Topps
Card Set: Topps Baseball Series 2
Year:  2014
Card Number: CR-36
Card Type: Insert
Insert Type: Manurelic
Insert Set: Rookie Class Rings
Note: Unnumbered base set

The first of Robin's 2014 Topps Series 2 cards to arrive in my hands.  I picked this card up for about seven bucks delivered so patience definitely paid off.  There are 3 other parallels of this card. The gold, gold gem, and gold gem autograph versions.  I'll be lucky if I'm able to pick up the gold version numbered to 99, but the gold gem and gold gem autos are probably well out of my price range.  You can see photos of those cards on my Series 2 gallery post HERE.

I really do like these manufactured commemorative cards.  The card is thick and heavy and it displays very well.  And of course I'm always excited to be able to add a new Yount to the collection.

2014 Topps Tier One - Younts for those with deep pockets

Topps Tier One has been out for a few weeks now.  Robin has a few cards in the set, at least from what I can find. And they ain't cheap.

2014 Topps Series 2 - Younts Freaking Everywhere

2014 Topps Series 2 came out this past Wednesday and there are a ton of new Yount cards to be had, some fairly common and a couple pretty rare ones. Here's what I've found so far.

1989 Die Cut Minis
Breakout Moments

Commemorative Class Rings
There are 3 levels, the base silver, gold #d to 99 and the gold gems #d to 25

Future Stars that Never Where

Robin also has two other parallel versions of this card. A relic and auto version.

Not sure why the auto's are numbered on the back and the relics are numbered on the front.
Not too shabby for a guy whose been retired for 20 years.
