1960s Blog Hall of Fame (#2)

Well, we're a little past the halfway mark of the voting period, and the leaders currently are:
Frank Robinson
Mickey Mantle
Ernie Banks
Richie Allen

Those just under the cutoff are:
Orlando Cepeda
Whitey Ford
Ron Santo
Warren Spahn
and the rest

Had the voting ended after the first 9 ballots, the inductees would have been:
Mickey Mantle (100%)
Ernie Banks (89%)
Whitey Ford (89%)
Frank Robinson (89%)
Richie Allen (78%)

Recently, there's been a lot of support for Cepeda, Santo, and Wills, while voting for Ford and Spahn has tailed off (maybe because their careers were mostly in the '50s and early '60s?)
