In a collaborative effort with Sooze from Babes Love Baseball, we are presenting to you the Rookie Card Playoffs. Check out these current players’ rookie cards and pick your favorite. The top vote-getter of each bracket will make it to Round Two and so on, until there is only one Rookie Card Champion of the World.

The heat is on. Rondell White’s 1991 card dominated the first set of the Rookie Card Playoffs with his seductive smile and bent knee – a 5-vote victory over runner-up Nomar Garciaparra and his innocent, pubescent face.

Third-place went to the scrappy Chipper Jones while fourth-place was held down by an already-ornery Barry Bonds. and Mike Mussina, who recieved only 6 tallies, placed dead last.

Considering Rondell’s victory, we thought it appropriate to dub this set the Mustache Round. So, choose your favorite – which can be based on absolutely anything, not just these players’ sweet ‘staches.

Voting for this set ends at midnight on Sunday.
