I'd like to make some observations about the TB honorable mentions for 2017. I thought it quite interesting that the one with the highest number of judges votes, Footbal Hero, got 100 votes, while the next one down, High Desert, got 59 votes. Why the spread?! It does make one wonder. Anyway, it does make ME wonder.
Here 's the database photo for Football Hero
And I just have to say ho hum. Seems to me I've seen many similar and this is nothing particularly new or special. I seem to recall my Mom had a similar one, back in the 1950's. But then I've never been fond of the yellow/ purple or yellow/ blue combos, so maybe it's just me.
Now let's look at the next one down the list, High Desert.
Now, in my view, that one is more special. Just my opinion. Next I'm going to look at more of the TB Honorable mentions, because in just a few years, these will be the ones vying for Award of Merit, Dykes and Wister awards.
