The Frankenset Bracket: The terrific 32 (Pt. 2)


We had some shockers last week.

#9 (Page 20) -- 2012 Topps #172 Reed Johnson (16 votes)

def.

#1 (Page 61) -- 1973 Topps #542 Pat Corrales (15 votes)




#13 (Page 5) -- 1996 Score #38 Bip Roberts (16 votes)

def.

#5 (Page 74) -- 1991 Topps #659 Oscar Azocar (13 votes)




#3 (Page 3) -- 1972 Topps #19 Billy Cowan (25 votes)

def.

#11 (Page 30) -- 1992 Upper Deck #268 Mike Benjamin (4 votes)




#7 (Page 21) -- 1984 Fleer #182 Glenn Hubbard (17 votes)

def.

#2 (Page 18) -- 1984 Fleer #158 Roy Lee Jackson (12 votes)

This was, on a selfish level, a very disappointing week for me. Corrales and Jackson might well be my two favorite cards in my frankenset, and, sadly, both were eliminated in this round. 

Corrales received more votes (27) than any other card in any of the 74 frankenset pages and was my personal pick to win it all, which made his early exit at the hands of Reed Johnson all the more shocking. And, in other news, Sombrero Bip -- a #13 seed -- continued his Cinderella run into the Sweet 16 with a narrow win over Mr. Azocar.

Just goes to show the complete and utter unpredictability of brackets.

-----------------------------

It's time to dive into the second region of the Terrific 32 bracket with our next batch of first-round victors.

Let's see who we'll be voting on this week.

#8 (Page 4) -- 1973 Topps #35 Willie Davis

All right, I'll just say it: the Bevacqua card is dated and overrated. Perez is holding a picture of himself holding a picture of himself holding a...you get the idea. I'm also voting for Crowley over Petralli because taking out a Yankee>>>taking out a cameraman. Allensworth over Welch, and Billy Cowan over everybody because he has a halo over his head!
