Robin Yount, 1993 Pinnacle Now & Then

Name: Robin Yount
Team: Milwaukee Brewers
Position: Center field, shortstop
Value of card: Two 12 packs of Milwaukee's Best
Key 1992 stat: Two 12 packs of Milwaukee's Best, consumed before photo shoot
The Matchup gets a little tipsy in Milwaukee:

Round 1: Flowing locks (Winner: Young Robin)
Round 2: Hollow, dead eyes (Winner: Tie)
Round 3: Larry Bird resemblance (Winner: Young Robin)
Round 4: Unkempt facial hair (Winner: Tie)
Round 5: Depth of wrinkles (Winner: Old Robin)
Round 6: Woman's name, or that of a superhero sidekick (Winner: Tie)
Round 7: Chicken neck (Winner: Tie)
Round 8: Elf ears (Winner: Old Robin)
Round 9: Lip hair (Winner: Young Robin)

Score: Young Robin 3, Old Robin 2, Ties 4

Synopsis: There were more ties than wins for either competitor, which seems fitting considering Yount looked just as old in 1974 as in 1992. In the end, though, Young Robin takes home the Bust trophy thanks to his amateur, disheveled lip blanket.

  1. I guess that's an error card - those hats only were introduced in 1978, so the picture couldn't be from 1974.
