The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 47: Numbers 415-423


I teased it, you asked for it, and now we've got it: The Dime Box Frankenset is back!

For the time being, I'm bringing back my weekly posting of pages from my second Dime Box Frankenset. I'll be posting a poll on the sidebar with each week's nine nominees (or less if I haven't filled that particular page yet). All you have to do is vote for your favorite, and the card with the most tallies at the end of the week wins that page. (I'm planning another bracket-style tourney with all the winners, but that's way down the line.)

The only major change I'm making this time around is the choosing of which page to display each passing week. Since this a frankenset built on randomness, I figured the way I show them should be random as well. So instead of going in order (because order is boring!), I'm letting a random number generator decide which page will enjoy the spotlight each week.

Page 47 (#s 415-423) gets to do the honor of rebooting the Dime Box Frankenset, and here's your first batch of nine nominees.



1993 Upper Deck #415 Denny Neagle

Deleted scene from Field of Dreams: everyone is disappointed when Denny Neagle pops out of the cornfields. 



1982 Fleer #416 Hal McRae

'82 Fleer doing what '82 Fleer does best: being off-center and just generally weird. 



1993 Upper Deck #417 Willie Wilson

Oh hey. 



1997 Collector's Choice #418 Kevin Stocker

I've looked at this photo closely, and I still can't tell what's in that briefcase. (Also, has there ever been another card with a briefcase on it?) 



2017 Topps #419 Roberto Perez

It's always a treat when World Series moments pop up on standard Flagship base cards, like this shot featuring one of Roberto Perez's two homers in Game 1 of the 2016 Fall Classic (though we all know who went on to win that series). 



1996 Score #420 Stan Javier

Pure cardboard mastery, including a couple rare fan sign sightings. 



1992 Leaf #421 Kim Batiste

Safe our out? 



1997 Score #422 Shane Andrews

A scattered mess of legs and limbs. 



1999 Fleer Tradition #423 Bob Henley

You know what they say about a man and his tools (of ignorance).

There's the nine for this week, and thanks to all of you who convinced me to get this theme back up and going again! The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

Welcome back Frankenset polls! Great selection. Love seeing McRae and Wilson "reunited", both with great cards.

That Javier is a perfect Battle of the Bay card. What a cool action shot.

Stocker all the way, because I love a good mystery.
