All About the Base - 1994 Topps

Year: 1994
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Flagship
Card Number: 310
Card Type: Base

Here we are the end of the road.  Robin's final Topps flagship card.  He would get a few more tribute cards next year before the Yountless years of 1996-1998.  Robin announced his retirement on February 10th so being featured in the first series meant the checklist had already been finalized and most likely printing started for the set.  Which for us Yount collector's is a nice ending.  This year the Topps Gold parallel cards were a little more subdued with just the player name and the Topps Gold Logo being foiled.  This year Topps returned to the horizontal backs but still squished all the player stats over to the right side to allow for a back photo.

Whew that was a long ride.  I'm going to go back to doing some random card posts, but I do plan to do an All About the Base series for Robin's, Fleer, Donruss, Upper Deck, and Score flagship runs.

  1. Something great about a complete stat line for a base card and not a tribute. Early memories of Bob Uecker calling his career made me a baseball fan.
