The dime box frankenset, Page 16: Numbers 136-144

It wasn't much of a contest last week.

Win -- 1973 Topps #133 Dave Roberts (17 votes)

Place -- 1993 Ted Williams #135 Jim Gilliam BB (5 votes)

Show -- 1994 Topps #132 Bret Barberie (4 votes)

Once again, the power of vintage could not be stopped. The mustard-yellow Dave Roberts crushed the competition, taking 17 of the 31 total votes last week. I myself was actually one of the five to vote for Mr. Gilliam, as the botched suicide-squeeze action shots makes for one of my personal favorite cards in this frankenset.

Roberts is, for good reason, the ninth frankenset champion to come from '73 Topps, which is far and away the most to come from a single set.

We're back with nine new frankenset hopefuls this week.

Let's meet them.

2012 Topps #136 Casey McGehee

One of those perfectly-timed cardboard moments. 

1994 UD All-Time Heroes #137 Rennie Stennett

Either a double dip or a ferocious karate kick to the head of that poor Braves baserunner.

1991 Stadium Club #138 Eric Show

Eric Show did always strike me as a guy who knew his way around a guitar. 

1993 Topps #139 Gary Gaetti

One of the immaculate trio from '93 Topps. 

2014 Topps Update #US-140 Nick Hundley

A postgame pie in Baltimore, no doubt delivered by Adam Jones. 

1994 Pinnacle Museum Collection #141 Jose Vizcaino

The parallel is only here because I don't yet own the base card, but I'm completely fine with that for now because these are some of the best parallels in the world. 

1997 Collector's Choice #142 Ismael Valdes

Pitcher at the plate! 

1994 Sportflics Rookie/Traded #143 Stan Javier

Throwing it back in 3-D.

2006 Upper Deck #144 David Riske

We close with some family time at the ball yard.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

Being a musician, the Eric Show card is a no-brainer.
