‘Million Dollar Question’ – Better 1975 Topps Rookie Card: George Brett OR Robin Yount??
George Brett OR Robin Yount?
Robin Yount OR George Brett?
No matter how you slice it, these two players are some of the best that debuted in the 1970s and starred in the sport for decades after.
Each guy amassed incredible, Hall of Fame career numbers and you really cannot go wrong by calling either of them your favorite player.
But, when it comes to selecting which one had the better rookie baseball card, that is a decision that you can make. Simply put, you more than likely enjoy one of them more than the other.
So, that is tonight’s ‘Million Dollar Question’ – Who had the better rookie baseball card from the 1975 Topps set: George Brett OR Robin Yount?
Before I give you my answer, let me tell you that I don’t have either of these cards in my collection. But I hope to change that in time as I find them both to be essential cards to own for any collector that appreciates cards issued during the 1970’s.
And now for my vote…
My pick is the George Brett card!! This race is a lot closer than you may think, but ultimately I feel that the Brett card shows him off in a way that most fans recall him – as a supreme hitter! In my opinion, the Yount card’s color scheme works better with the lettering and border color, but the image features him posing in a defensive stance and that is not something I think of when thinking of Mr. Yount. Whereas the Brett card shows him posed in a causal batting stance, and that is certainly what I think of when I recall memories of watching him play.
The Purple and Pink used in the Brett card’s graphics are not traditional baseball colors, but the 1975 Topps baseball card set does not follow a lot of traditional baseball card rules.
And now it is your turn, which card do you prefer the most out of these two? Let me hear it!!!
