  1. A great player. A good player. A great card. A fair card.

    McDougald (McDonald?)gets my vote.

  2. I cannot vote against '55 Bowman, even if it's opposed by Junior Griffey. The TV set is just "tuned" into my aesthetic tastes!

  3. This vote is more for the set than the player, but had you put Griffey up against almost any other set he might have won, but 55 Bowman McDougald gets my vote.

  4. The TV set is cool, but I'm going to vote for Griffey. That era just "speaks to me" more. Plus, I've actually heard of Griffey.
