1990 Beckett #60

If you looked at my Yount Collection page you'll see 99% of the list is baseball cards.  But I do have a small collection of Magazines that Robin has graced the cover on and it's an area I really want to expand.   Robin has been featured on the front of Beckett two times, although it might be more it's just two times I know of.   The second time was in 1992 on issue #90.

I ended up picking this up for a whole 50 cents plus shipping, off of eBay.  It's wasn't advertised as mint and the seller sure didn't package it to keep it pristine, but it's a very clean, attractive and readable copy.

I love all the old advertisements from the 90's and all the business card ads for all the different card shops back then.  I even found a few for Anchorage that are long gone.  And look at this price guide.  The print is so big.  As a matter of fact  the price guide section only takes up about 35 pages of the magazine.
Let's see what Robin's rookie card was going for back in 1990.

  1. Damn, higher than Brett. That was pretty rare, I always remember them being even, or Brett's higher. Also, they used a fairly outdated photo... didn't they stop using that white panel batting helmet in 1986 or so?
