Well, how about that?



I've been having fun with Robert's little competition over at his $30 a WEEK Habit blog. I was very much surprised to see last night that the '59 Topps set edged out the '65 Topps in the quarterfinals. I like both sets but I really expected the '65 to win. It's very popular and Kevin did a fantastic job of showcasing it on his blog, The Great 1965 Topps Project. His was the very first blog I read and it was the one that inspired me to tackle the 1959 set. Here is how green I was.... I remember having to ask him what a 'blaster' was!


But anyway, the '59 set moves on. I'm anxious to see which other sets do the same and I'll be following (and voting) as the match-ups evolve. Have a great time at the national, Robert. Go ahead and spend $30 a day, heck, spend $30 an hour...it's the National!!
