The two-tone borders of the 1975 Topps baseball set are divisive among the collecting community. Some love them, others loathe them. The large shadowed block letters on the top of the card made searching for your favorite team very easy. A facsimile signature, player name and position towards the bottom of the card provide just the right amount of detail. The player image is large and in this case is a posed photo of Yount in the field. While the card isn't quite as valuable as it once was, it's still one of the most iconic and popular cards of the decade.

Robin Yount Signature Example

Robin Yount Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Robin Yount signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. A very easy to discern signature written in cursive.
  2. The signature is written on a slight elevated plane for the first name and near horizontal for the last.
  3. The signature is defined by the over-sized letters "R" and "Y."
  4. The "R" is printed with a large guitar pick shaped loop.
  5. The "o" and the "b" are written so that the first flows into the second without a pen lift.
  6. He uses the rise in the "b" as an implied "i" with just a dot and it also serves as the letter "n."
  7. The "Y" is lower case in nature with a swooping line that again forms a guitar pick shape.
  8. The "o" is similar to the first but slightly smaller, the "u" and "n" are formed in a way that they look nearly identical.
  9. The signature finishes with a crossed "t" resembling a star because the pen does not lift for the cross.
