The Great Larkin Experiment: The Battle of Junk Wax!

Back in September, I posted the next poll for my ongoing Great Larkin Experiment where the goal is to determine (as a collective group) the "best" Barry Larkin card out of the first 100 cards that I wrote up for my Barry Larkin Collection.

In the beginning, I had good luck with reader participation - but over the last few polls things have really died down.  In fact, I got so discouraged that the blog feature basically went dormant from September until now.  However, since I started the bracket I'd like to finish it and so it's time to take a look at the previous results and then introduce the next vote.
That's really hard to read, isn't it?  Eesh.

Last time, only four people voted (though having the poll at the top of the blog proved to be a poor decision on my part).  You'll be able to find all subsequent polls on the side of my blog (exactly where you could find the Blogger Bracket Challenge polls)!  Anyhow, 1988 Donruss knocked out 1999 Fleer Tradition by a 3 to 1 vote.  I'm sort of sad about that because I really like the Fleer Tradition card (and I don't particularly care for the 1988 Donruss card) but I'm sure things will take care of themselves as the bracket continues.

Speaking of the bracket, here it is in all its glory!

Now, let's get to the next vote!

1991 Score vs. 1992 Donruss

This is a battle of junk wax base cards.  No subsets, no inserts, just pure unadulterated junk wax!  I'll only post one poll hoping that you can take the time to quickly cast your vote - no more of this "only four votes" stuff please!  By the way, I think this is an obvious vote but we'll see what you all think...
