The Ugstravaganza Returns! Have a Vote Ovah Heeeyah

Since Blogger futzed up their polls widget sometime ago, The Red Cardboard Ugly Card Ugstravaganza Tournament was forced into hiatus. For a long time. So long, in fact, that I kind of forgot about it. Then I saw a working poll on somebody's blog. SO NOW WE'RE BACK. AND UGLIER THAN EVER. You may recall (probably not, though) that the seeding rounds have ended. We've parsed 100 ugly card down to 60 and we're moving through the brackets. Seven hideous match-ups today for you kids to vote on. Let's ride.

Voting closes Friday at noon eastern.

Match-Up H: #29 2011 UD Goodwin Champions Johnny Bench vs. #36 1996 Metal Universe Reggie Sanders

Match-Up I: #13 1987 Fleer Game Winners Ron Robinson vs. #52 2001 UD Vintage Reds Team Lineup

Match-Up J: #20 2014 Topps Heritage Mat Latos vs. vs. #45 1986 Fleer All Stars Dave Parker

Go Reds.


  1. Is that a bubble gum bubble that Eric Davis just removed from his mouth? That's such an odd photo.

    Pokey Reese looks like he's been offered a blindfold and a cigarette. "I regret that I have but one life to give for my high school baseball team!"
