What's next? Quarterfinals: (1) 1965 Topps vs (8) 1959 Topps
A match up featuring two sets that easily could have made it to the final if I were doing all the voting. A great pair of cards on the scan, featuring a pair of NL Central clubs battling it out for the title again this year.
This round instead of the "tale of the tape", I'm going to answer a trio of questions:
How they got here:
1965 defeated 1978 17-2
1959 defeated 1966 11-9
How big a head start do I have on these sets?
1965 Topps: Minimal 17 out of 598
1959 Topps: Minimal 10 out of 572
Favorite card that I own from each set so far:
1965: # 303 Rico Carty (Rico played for the Blue Jays)
1959: # 134 Jim McDaniel (I like the Sporting News rookie card design)
I really like how the backs look on both of these sets, so that's a wash for me.
So, which set do you want me to build? Let me know in the comments.
thanks for reading, and voting, Robert
