1993 Upper Deck

During his final season, 37 year-old Robin Yount had 7 consecutive hits over 2 games versus the Blue Jays in May at the SkyDome.

On May 27, 1993 his single in the top of the 5th, was his 2120th single of his career passing Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn’s mark for 23rd place on the all-time list.

Robin’s single in the 6th tied him for 22nd place with Hall of Famer George Sisler.

About the Card

1993 Upper Deck is a very simple, clean & elegant design. White borders with a monochromatic stripe highlighting the players name in script.

Pictured is what's known as a “true gem” copy. Due to Beckett’s grading algorithm you don’t need to have every sub grade be gem in order to obtain a gem grade.

In general, true gems fetch a slightly higher price than a regular gem.

As a side note, centering is weighted more in the algorithm. Which is unusual considering it’s the one aspect of the card condition that the collector has no control over.
