Robin Yount, 1992 Fleer Pro-Visions

Name: Robin Yount
Team: Milwaukee Brewers
Positions: Outfield, hero
Value of card: Six giant baseballs
Key 1991 stat: One blockbuster
Movie trailer time: In a world where oversize baseballs have gained self-awareness and the ability to fly (cut to scene of said baseballs crashing with explosive force into buildings, cars and cleanup hitters), only one triple play can save the Earth. (Cut to scene of a pack of baseballs taking down a jetliner.) This summer, Robin Yount (cut to scene of Yount looking up and saying "Bottom of the ninth, you red-seamed bastards"), Robin Yount's mustache (cut to an intense scene of Yount eating a crumb-laden baguette) and Robin Yount's mullet (cut to a slow-motion CGI scene of Yount's mullet snaring a baseball in its golden strands) make a stand against rawhide. The balls may strike, but it's America that is ... "Ahead in the Yount."
