Wow, I didn't even realize that when I first ran the randomizer that this was an early round match up. In any other world, this could have easily been the final to determine the winner, but instead, one of the big boys gets knocked out early.
Tale of the tape:
- Set Size: 1972 has 787 cards. 1971 has 752 cards
- Key RCs: 1972 Fisk/Cooper, Cey/Oglivie 1971 Steve Garvey, Baker/Baylor
- Cost of complete set in NM condition: 1972 $1500 1971 $2500
- Number of cards with high book at $100 or more: 1972: 1 1971: 4
1972 Topps vs. 1971 Topps
This was the first time that I spotted the '72 Topps blog hosted by Douglas. He is counting the cards down starting from 787 and working his way towards #1.
The 1971 blog is written by the Night Owl, and as always is a quality read. Greg is daring to be different and working his way from card #1 to the end (or is that the norm...).
Since last night, Jim from Downingtown has informed us that the polls are still not working. So, if everyone would be so kind as to leave their vote in the comments on this post, that would be greatly appreciated!!
thanks for reading, and voting! Robert
