|Extra! Extra! El Tiante advances!|
I waited awhile to post this one because I didn't know what to do if the last match up ended up without votes. Do I treat it like a tie-breaker? Eliminate both cards and treat it as a bye? Beg on forums and social media? Flip a coin? The answer to this still eludes me. Fortunately, I got a late vote (thanks Kin!) to buy me some time should it happen again. I'm hoping it doesn't.
Today's match-up features two vintage cards, one well known, the other an oddball find:
The Case for Smoky Burgess: My favorite 1960's oddball, this is a 61 year old card with an advertising slogan that make you want a hot dog.
The Case for Bob Gibson: A classic Topps design, a Hall of Famer - what's not to like? My uncle would want you to vote for Gibson.
Last week I struggled to get votes. Please make this easier on me - comment below!
