Death by trouncing

You kind of had to expect that this 1st round match between the 1965 and 1978 Topps sets might become a little lopsided.  '65 is probably one of the best (if not the best) set of the past 45 years, while '78 doesn't have a great deal of star power to boast.

So, without further adieu, here is the winner of the 8 vs 9 seed match.

The unibrow of Mr. Moon moves on, with a 17-2 trouncing going into the books.

That margin may have already earned the '65 set the top seed going into the next round.  There are still 7 matches remaining in the round of 16, but that may be a tough score to beat.   Unless the contest attracts a lot more voters in the upcoming weeks, in my estimation there may be only 1 or 2 more matches that have the possibility of a lopsided score such as this.

The next match starts tomorrow with an interesting contest, as '59T faces '66T.

Thanks for reading, and voting, Robert


  1. Ugh. But hey, I've been thinking about starting a weird collection of unibrow players in honor of one of my favorite Atlanta chefs, Hugh Acheson (if you're a foodie, you've heard of him...)...
