What's next? Quarterfinals (4) 1976 Topps vs (5) 1967 Topps
I made a small mistake on yesterday's post. I said that if '76 wins this weeks match we would have two 70's sets vs two 60's sets in the semis. '59 Topps is still in the battle, so this weeks match will determine which decade will have 2 sets left in the hunt.
How they got here:
1976 defeated 1970 16-4
1967 defeated 1962 16-9
How big a head start do I have on these sets?
1976 Topps: Very Good 375 out of 660 (with a few needing upgrades)
1967 Topps: Minimal 22 out of 609
Favorite card that I own from each set so far:
1974: # 554 Ray Fosse (A great look, almost as if he's nailed a runner trying to steal second)
1963: # 129 Phil Roof (combination of old time glove, sleeveless jersey and what appears to be a jacket under his jersey is a weird but great look in my opinion).
25 votes last week, a great turnout, thank you! We already have one blog pushing for one of these sets....read here for further details.
thanks for reading, and voting, Robert
