Robin Yount 3000 Hit Ball

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

Robin Yount was one of the best and most beloved players of his generation. His Hall of Fame career included many accolades, awards and notable pieces of memorabilia. Many of those items were sold last week through SCP Auctions including both the bat and ball from Yount’s 3,000th hit.

Jerseys, bats, trophies and other pieces of memorabilia kept and collected by Yount over the years were among the more than 70 lots sold during SCP’s 2016 Mid-Summer Classic sale.

The items from Yount’s milestone hit led the way. The bat finished at $48,841 while the ball fetched $34,176. Like most of the pieces in the sale, they’re signed by the two-time American League MVP. These also have inscriptions noting the milestone.

Other notable pieces of Robin Yount memorabilia sold include jerseys from 1976, 1982 and 1989, the earliest known fielding glove from his professional career and a cap he wore playing at Taft High School.

Several pieces could have been of interest to collectors not necessarily focused on Yount. Among the mementoes were items signed by large groups of Hall of Famers. Most originated at special events.

Here’s a full list of items from the Robin Yount Collection that were sold on August 20, 2016.
