The dime box frankenset, Page 20: Numbers 172-180

Let's take a look at how last week's frankenset voting played out.

Win -- 1972 Topps #166 Chris Speier IA (16 votes)

Place -- 2015 Stadium Club #163 CJ Wilson (6 votes)

Show -- 2015 Topps Heritage #165 Kennys Vargas (4 votes)

It wasn't much of a contest last week. Chris Speier's "In Action" double dip took 16 out of the 35 total tallies to cruise to the crown. It's the fourth straight week I've voted for the eventual victor.

It feels good to agree with the masses here in the blogosphere.

We've got nine new hopefuls in this week's frankenset page.

Let's meet them.

2012 Topps #172 Reed Johnson

For the birds. 

 1996 Collector's Choice #173 Gary Gaetti

Throwing it back with the Negro League's colorful Kansas City Monarchs jerseys.

 2014 Gypsy Queen #174 Yovani Gallardo

A second straight Negro League throwback, this time to the old Milwaukee Bears franchise.

2015 Stadium Club #175 Drew Stubbs

A perfectly timed postgame shower. 

1998 Donruss #176 John Jaha


2015 Stadium Club #177 Guilder Rodriguez

Doubling down with postgame showers from '15 Stadium Club. 

1992 Upper Deck #178 Charles Nagy

The rare post-DH, pre-interleague AL pitcher at the plate. 

2011 Topps #179 Armando Galarraga

A third Negro League throwback with these Detroit Stars duds. 

2000 Stadium Club Chrome #180 Ed Sprague

We close with a chromy collision at the plate.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

I went with the Gallardo. All three Negro League throwbacks are sweet.

Maybe I'm old, but I'm not a fan of cards where you can't see the player's face at all, or the whole Gatorade shower thing.

I still need to find a copy of that Stubbs card. Sprague is a close second, though.

Matthew Scott said...

Totally biased with my pick of Ed Sprague.

Two Brewers in the same page? You make this very difficult for me.

That violent Chrome collision shot should be my pick, but my softer side took over. Jaha it is!
