    1976 Robin Yount Game Worn Milwaukee Brewers Jersey. If there was ever a player who epitomized the city he played for it was Robin Yount. Former teammate BJ Surhoff gave this glowing observation. "No one plays like Robin," Surhoff said in a Sports Illustrated article in 1990 to scribe Peter Gammons. "He runs out every ground ball to the pitcher as hard as he can. He is the best baserunner in baseball, he plays hitters perfectly, he's an incredible clutch hitter, he gives himself for the team at all person costs. When you play with him, you realized that he plays the game on the edge."

    Yount plied his trade in the city of Milwaukee and is the franchise's signature star. Multiple times he could have left for brighter lights or more money but he was loyal to Bud Selig and the Brew Crew. Things weren't always rosy though. As a 22-year old, Yount threatened to quit and join the PGA Tour before he regained his senses. A MVP in 1982 was joined by another in '89 as Yount became one of only three men to win the coveted award at two positions. Bumps and bruises never seemed to sideline Yount either. Selig or his manager would need to tell Yount he wasn't in the lineup because of injury. Yount gamers are always a welcome sight for Brewers fans. But this gamer can be traced to the early portion of The Kid's career.

    The offered powder blue "Sand Knit size 40" gamer saw action during the 1976 season. At some point, the jersey suffered through extensive water damage as the identifiers have mold staining from exposure. The front "1" has split in parts. Two sets of rust stains are visible on the front and back tail. The tail holds a Brewers exclusivity tag (sewn), size label (glue affixed) and all-important "Yount 76 40" strip tag. The left side has a few loose threads. We look as the glass as half full here. While not in optimal condition, the presented gamer does originate from Yount's ascension to the top. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
