SEC - Bracket Match Up #10

Read all about it! Ugly red border advances!

Dave Stewart lost mainly because voters didn't like the splatter paint red background of 1990 Donruss. I was fairly certain Ozzie would fall to the same fate, but since we have a tie, he moves on! This would probably qualify as the upset of the competition so far.

Next up are two young pitchers. (Well, at least Roger was young when the photo was taken!) It's an all time great vs. new blood:

2017 Topps #8a Jose Berrios
1985 Leaf/Donruss #99 Roger Clemens

The Case for Jose Berrios: Like I mentioned in the original post, the photography on this card is amazing. Berrios is an exciting young pitcher who hopefully has a long career ahead of him.

The Case for Roger Clemens: It can be argued that the Rocket is one of the greatest pitchers ever. How can you say no to that green leaf and black border with red striping?

I leave the decision to you small number of readers. (by the way, thanks so much for the handful of you who have voted so far! I'm glad to have a little bit of interaction on my posts!) As always, leave a comment with which card you want to see advance!


  1. I vote Clemens just because I loved the 1980s Leaf logo on cards.

  2. I'm going to vote for berrios because the photo is better. Not only the lighting but also the angle, Dynamics and degree of difficulty in getting that quality in a shot at that time of night.

  3. I'm with Billy: the Leaf/Donruss photo is so terrible that I have to go with Berrios.
