On the Radar - Topps Now Turn Back the Clock #200

 My beloved Brewers have been knocked out the playoffs yet again.  Sigh.  But Topps decided to give me a consolation prize and feature Robin Yount on yet another Topps Now Turn Back the Clock.  This one celebrating Robin's multiple 4 hit games in the 1982 World Series.  Last year the Brewers only had two cards in the Turn Back the Clock set (both CC Sabathia), and this year Robin gets two!! I'm not complaining.  Usually these are only offered for 24 hours but the last couple weeks Topps has been throwing out almost a weeks worth of cards at a time.  Robin's card would have been offered from Oct 17 to Oct 18, but is available at the time of writing (Oct 13, 2021) until Oct 18th.  Robin's last card only sold 436 cards (and I bought 5 of those).

On the Radar - 2021 Topps Rip Yount Checklist

 Wow it's been non-stop On the Radar posts! And another new product is coming out with Robin in it again.  The second year of Topps Rip.  Basically taking one of the best things that comes out of Allen and Ginter and just making a whole product of rip cards.  Robin isn't in the base set, but is in the inserted mini set again this year.  I didn't think Robin was going to make 500 cards this year until Five Star or Triple Threads came out, but with this release Robin has topped over 500 cards release this year!!

Here's the checklist and I'll add images as they show up.

On the Radar - 2021 Topps Update Yount Checklist

 We'll have to wait till Update actually comes out to see if Robin has a Legends variation in the set, fingers crossed, but with the checklist being released today we can see Robin is featured in the 70th Anniversary Logo Patch with an Autographed version as well found in Blaster boxes.  I'll add imagery when these start popping up and amend the checklist if he has a Legends variation.

On the Radar - 2021 Panini Donruss Optic Baseball - Yount Checklist

 Robin didn't have a single card in this year's Donruss release, but is featured in the Panini equivilant of Topps Chrome.  Robin has a signature in the Retro Signature Series set and 3 very low numbered parallels.

I'll correct card numbering once these start popping up.

On the Radar - 2021 Topps Allen and Ginter X Yount checklist

 This product actually came out about 3 weeks ago, or rather was offered for sale on Topps' website about 3 weeks ago.  Montgomery Club members got first chance to pick this up and then it was offered to the general public.  Since Robin was featured in the regular A&G he's also featured in this set.

On the Radar - 2021 Leaf Industry Summit Autographs

 Given out (or maybe sold) at the 2021 Industry Summit. Cards came in a sealed box with one encased auto numbered 1/1.  Lots of different parallels per player and the set included all four major sports, plus  tennis, MMA, boxing and likely a few more sports I didn't see.  Robin is featured in the set and while no checklist has been provided I've seen at least 5 examples and it appears that Robin's cards feature sticker autos, so I think I can safely assume he's also in all of the parallels.  

If Leaf actually releases a checklist I'll update accordingly.

On the Radar - 2021 Panini Spectra Baseball Yount checklist

 Robin has a few relics and autos to chase in the set.  I'll update card numbering (since Panini can't seem to release a checklist with correct card designations on it) when stuff starts popping up.
