    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 "Medalist Sand Knit size 40" home jersey was worn extensively during the 1976 season. Moderate and consistent use is the hallmark of this knit treasure. The two-tone tackle twill team name and numbers have puckered from washings and diamond use. "Brewers" is arched across the chest while the retired "19" digits appear on both sides. Blue/yellow/blue trim surrounds the V-neck and both sleeve ends. Three tags are secured in the tail: "Yount 76 40" (diagonal), Brewers exclusivity (sewn) and Medalist size (glue affixed). A few of Yount's benchmark numbers have been topped but there is no man who can rival the popularity of the shortstop turned center fielder. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
