Card number 225 is Robin's 9th in the series, which Topps was nice enough to number with a player number as well. This card celebrates Robin's two MVP awards. In 1982 I was nine and had no idea what was going on in the world of baseball really. But I was very much into baseball in 1989 and can remember a lot of my friends pissed off that Robin won. I think most of them wanted Cal Ripken to win that year. In 1989 Robin took 65% of the awards share, which is significant. But in 1982 he was voted the AL MVP with 98% share! Yeah. It was almost unanimous that year with one lone half wit voting for Reggie Jackson.
