2019 Card-vent Calendar: December 14

December 14, 2019:
2003 Fleer Ultra #37WG Robin Yount When it Was a Game
Kind of a strange design on this Yount card.  Mustard-gold border, with kind of a wood panel television set motif, or maybe a cafeteria tray or cutting board thing going on, a portal to another dimension of cloud-filled grandeur.  But the star of the show here is the name, slightly off-center in the middle of the card in beautiful yellow drop shadow sitcom font.  Yes, Robin Yount would have made a good neighbor on Perfect Strangers, playing the straight man when Balki needed to pop next door to borrow some power tools.  On an endless timeline in infinite universes, this has already happened.
