2016 Topps Stadium Club Gold Foil

Year: 2016
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Stadium Club
Card Number: 227
Card Type: Parallel
Parellel Set: Gold Foil

Howdy.  It's been awhile I know.  I've been up in the Alaskan Arctic looking for salmon.  It was pretty awesome.  Didn't find many salmon, but did get to raft down some pretty spectacular rivers and streams.  We were based out of an old oil exploration camp called Umiat.  Type that into Google Earth to see how remote that was.  Anyways it's time to get back to Yount cards.

When Stadium Club came out fellow Yount collector Tony L from Off Hiatus Sportcards tweeted an image of Robin's card at me and he was a little upset about the image used.  At first it did take me by surprise.  We agreed that it was most likely an image from a photo shoot that led to Robin's 1991 Pinnacle Sidelines card.  I posted about the original image a while back.  I think the cards grown on Tony and to be honest I actually really like it.  

Stadium Club was loaded with great images, but this card is unique.  After looking through most of the images I do believe that Robin's card is the only one to feature a non-baseball image.  Like all Topps products plenty of parallels to chase, just like this Trump err Gold Parallel.
