My current Yaz card total is at 471 different, which is only around 12% of all his cards. I'm sure there are many larger collections out there. One of my favorite Yaz cards is this one....
Obviously it was someones favorite card back in the day, I have a nice condition one too, but this one has more character!

I would imitate his stance and hold my bat high during our neighborhood games. In the late 80s I worked (and still do) at the local NBC affiliate in Bangor, Maine and Yaz came up to do some tv commercials for the local Chrysler dealership. Our tv station handled the production and I got to work on the ads and in fact even did the voice on one of them. Technically I was in the same ad as Carl Yastrzemski although it was just my voice at the end. I met him and he signed some of my old cards for me. I should've had him sign some of my less valuable cards but didn't realize at the time that I was de-valuing them.
