Cardboard appreciation, semifinal #2

(What will I remember about 2009? Well, mostly how work life took a giant leap up the suckitude scale. But this post is about appreciation. So, I'll fall back on the usual positives: health, family, country and baseball cards. Time for Cardboard Appreciation):

The 1991 Topps Carlton Fisk card is starting to look like the overall champion in the Cardboard Appreciation Vote-off. It hasn't encountered a tough opponent yet.

In the first semifinal, Fisk handled the 1980 Kellogg's J.R. Richard card as if it was mangled '88 Donruss. Here is the vote tally:

1. Carlton Fisk, 1991 Topps: 23 votes
2. J.R. Richard: 1980 Kellogg's: 9 votes

So, Fisk enters the finals. And it's time to figure out which card will have the guts to go up against Fisk.

It's an all 1975 semifinal. Here are the three candidates:

One of the most iconic cards of the 1970s ...

One of the most humorous cards of the 1970s ...

One of the most unusual cards of the 1970s.

It's up to you to decide which one deserves to advance to the finals. The poll is ready to go on the sidebar. It's the last Cardboard Appreciation Vote-Off poll of the year! You HAVE to vote. You just have to.

Oh, and if you haven't voted in the worst card of 2009 poll, give that a try, too. You've got only two days left.

This one is going to be close. After I voted it was 4-4-4. I don't think it matters though because I expect Fisk to tag the winner of this poll out.

I had to go with Washington for the obviousness of the pose...he's got no helmet, there's no one in the stands and the card is pink/purple. Win, win, win/win.
The Fro is a Go, Oscar All the way!!!
