The first finalist is in place

By a count of 11-5, '59 Topps becomes one of the finalists.  This week was the lowest total number of votes in the tournament so far, and that's likely because of the time off in between matches.

No matter.  Tomorrow the tourney moves on to the 2nd semi-final, with 1963 Topps facing off against 1974 Topps.   Let's see if I can be successful in picking the losing set again this week, since I did a great job saying that '67 was going to defeat '59.

thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Clap, clap, clap!!!

    That '63 vs '74 is going to be a good one.

    1. I forgot to mention that this Siebern card is one of the best cards in the set. Or any Topps set for that matter. To me it shows that baseball cards can be 'art'.

    2. Bob, I appreciate your comment! There have been many times that I've written on this blog about certain cards (or sets), and haven't truly appreciated what I have until someone else has commented on the blog.

      This is one of those times. Thank you!
