2008 Donruss Threads Base card

Year: 2008
Manufacturer: Donruss
Card Set: Threads
Card Number: 29
Card Type: Base

Ah 2008 Donruss Threads.  I was pretty excited in 2008 when this came out and I saw how many new Younts I had to chase.  Who cares if it's non-licensed?  We still get partial logos and team colors!  It wouldn't be till 2010 and Upper Deck putting an end to that.  Overall a pretty nice design.  The baseball stitches up top are a nice touch, but they sure didn't waste any space on the back for stats.

On the Radar - 2017 Panini Immaculate Baseball! Checklist and Gallery

Robin's got a couple cards to find in this year's set, all of them low numbered.  I'm added these with the card numbering Panini published, but like usual I'm sure that it's not correct.  I will correct card designations once this stuff starts showing up.

On the Radar - 2017 Topps National Baseball Card Day!

Once again Topps is giving out free cards.  There is a LCS promotion, but also a stadium giveaway promotion.  The Brewers SGA includes 10 cards one of which happens to feature Robin.  I'm hopeful I can pick up a set or at least Robin's card fairly quickly.  I'll post an image of it here when I find one though.

You can see the whole checklist here.

2017 Topps Museum Collection Robin Yount Checklist and Gallery

The Brewers have very few cards in this year's offering of Museum Collection and even few that aren't Ryan Braun.  But Robin does have a few, and I do mean just a few cards in the set.  I'll added card images when stuff starts popping up.

Ladies and Gentlemen, my favorite baseball player of all-time!!




2010 Topps Series 1 Hat Logo Manurelic

Card Manufacturer: Topps
Year: 2010
Card Set: Series 1 Baseball
Card Number: MHR-94
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Manufactured Hat Logos
Card Attributes: Manurelic, Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 68/99

Wow what a crappy scan.  Robin has 3 cards in the Hat Logo set.  While I'm not a huge fan of manurelic cards, I really like this set.  You get a large patch and being numbered to just 99 are fairly rare, but not so much to be unattainable.

2013 Topps Museum Collection Blue Parallel

Year: 2013
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Museum Collection
Card Number: 27
Card Type: Base parallel
Parallel Set: Blue
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 08/99


Some parallels just stick out.  That can be good or bad, For Robin's 2013 Museum Collection Blue parallel card the blue border with gold strip match the Brewers colors so well this card really pops.

1991 Star Stellar #31

Card Manufacturer: Star
Card Set: Stellar
Year: 1991
Card Number: 31
Card Type: Base

It's been awhile since I posted one of Robin's Star cards.  Part of the Stellar set card #31 commemorates Robin's 3 All-Star appearances.  And that is about all I have to say.

2017 Panini Diamond Kings Robin Yount Checklist and Gallery

1991 Donruss


Year: 1991
Manufacturer: Donruss
Set: Flagship Baseball
Card Number: 272
Card Type: Base



How about we slow it way down and just back into the junk wax era?  1991 Donruss isn't my favorite, but it, in my opinion, was a vast improvement over the 1990 puke design.  Still about as basic as it gets, the borders do bring back memories of the late 80's -early 90's pop culture designs. Still not a bad looking card, the blue border goes well with the Brewer's team colors and we get a nice portrait of Robin hanging out.  The backs are still the same as they ever were.

1987 Classic Green

Year: 1987
Card Manufacturer: Classic
Card Set: Classic Baseball Trivia Game
Card Number: 44
Card Type: Base 

In the 80's everyone had a gimmick. Topps gave you gum, Donruss, puzzle pieces, Fleer, it was stickers.  Classic it was all about trivia.  Early on the only way to get Classic cards was to by the sets or games.  If my memory serves me correctly later on Classic did offer packs, but most early cards were only available in whole sets.  Usually a blister pack that included a game board and spinner.  There were also travel sets and add-ons.  Still over all the Classic cards competed very well with the big three at the time and the overall design is simple, but not unappealing. And the sets included a good sampling of the players of the day.

2003 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Classic Jersey Card

Year: 2003
Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Set: Sweet Spot Classic
Card Number: SJ-RY
Card Type: Insert, Relic
Card Set: Game Jerseys
Card Attributes: Relic
Relic Type: Jersey

I never personally opened any Sweet Spot product.  I'm cheap what can I say.  For me the risk / reward ratio is way too skewed.  But I've always loved the Sweet Spot Classic project, because its focus is retired players and HOFers that have had established careers.  And the checklist is chocked full of greats.  Here we have Robin's base relic in the set.  The overall design is pretty meh, but at least we get a muli-colored swatch which was what relic cards were all about in the early 2000's, that sweet pinstripe.

2017 Panini Donruss Robin Yount Checklist and Gallery

Robin is featured pretty well in this year's Donruss Baseball.  While he doesn't have a base card he is in a few insert sets and has at least a few relic cards and I'm not sure if the Diamond Collection is an auto set or not. 20 new cards to chase.  I'll archive images here when this stuff stars showing up.

1983 Permagraphics

Year: 1983
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Permagraphics
Card Number: NNO

I have to say I really do love these oddball Permagraphics "cards".   Offered as a mail order product in the pages of Baseball Digest these were offered for a number of years and back in the 80's the full sets weren't that cheap.  That being said you can find these cards around for a couple bucks.  I've included one of the offers below from 1982.  Thanks to Tony L, who I borrowed the image from.


If I remember right there were two different sets offered in 1983 year. This All-Star set and a Superstar set and there were also Gold parallel cards as well, but I'm not sure how those were offered. The Trading Card Database lists this card as #9, but there is no numbering on the card.  Still a cool oddball in the sea of cardboard.

2003 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Classic World Series Commemorative Patch

Year: 2003
Manufacture: Upper Deck
Set: Sweet Spot Classic
Card Number: P-RY3
Card Type: Insert 
Insert Set: Commemorative Manufactured Patches
Card Attributes: Manufactured Relic, Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 333/350

Manufactured Patches, what are they good for?  Absolutely noth.....oh never mind.

Topps wasn't the only manufacturer putting out manufactured "relics".  Robin actually has 3 cards in this insert set.  Two are hand numbered.  I have to say these cards are not all the appealing.  There is too much opening for the patches and if you look at a lot of these some of them were not glued on very straight.  But I do like the look of the patch and it does commemorate the one golden time in the Brewers history, even if they didn't win the 1982 World Series.

2016 Panini Diamond Kings Heritage Collection

Year: 2016
Manufacturer: Panini
Set: Diamond Kings
Card Number: HC1
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Heritage Collection

Maybe it's just me, but I love getting new Yount cards. And I'm not talking about autos and relics.  I'm talking about just a nice plain old insert like this one here.  Sure it doesn't have logos and Robin's photo is in black and white, which is probably better then having to look at the terrible photoshop colors Panini changes the uniforms to.

Overall a pretty appealing card the gold foil works well with the dark card.

1990 Panini Sticker


Year: 1990
Manufacturer: Panini 
Set: Panini Baseball Stickers
Card Number: 92
Card Type: Base

We all might think of Panini as one of the big three in terms of sport card manufacturers now, but back before they bought Donruss they were pretty much only known in the US for their stickers and sticker albums.

 A nice action shot of Robin running the bases.  Overall the design is nice and simple.  Nothing really interesting on the back, because after all this was a sticker.  And sticker backs get thrown away once the sticker is peeled.
