The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 34: Numbers 298-306

Frankenset Page #62 WINNER -- 1973 Topps #555 Bill Hands (15 votes)

Last week turned out to be another blowout in what I thought might be a competitive page.

No one was a match for the mighty Bill Hands, an all-around fantastic card (even with the tape residue on my copy) that took 15 of the 38 total votes to cruise to an easy victory.

My allegiances personally skew a bit toward the Davey Johnson double dips, but you really can't go wrong either way with '73 Topps.

No vintage this week, but we've still got a nice potpourri with the Random Generator's Choice of Page 34 (#s 298-306).

Let's meet the nominees.

1993 Upper Deck #298 Scott Radinsky

That's one way to get an autograph. 

1995 Collector's Choice #299 Chuck Carr

I'll let you caption this one. 

1993 Upper Deck #300 Kyle Abbott

Ball bucket hero number! 

1996 Collector's Choice #301 Mark Leiter

This should be the silhouette on the pitchers' Silver Slugger award.  

2013 Topps Update #US302 Yan Gomes

Hero for a day. 

1996 Upper Deck #303 Darren Lewis

I don't care much about the anthem itself, but the cards are still a fun theme to trace.

1998 Collector's Choice #304 Walt Weiss

Walt Weiss, a man who I'm convinced was put on this earth to receive great baseball cards. 

 1988 Score #305 Hubie Brooks

Nighttime double dip!

2000 Topps #306 Mike Lansing

A rare ray of sunshine in the dumpster fire that is 2000 Topps.

That just about does it for this week's page -- the polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

I was torn between cards 1 and 2. To break the tie I went with Weiss.

Kind of crazy that there are multiple double play cards, but Walt Weiss isn't one of them!

Photo on Brooks card- 9th inning double play from 1987 All Star Game?

I voted for Brooks... but the Carr card is pretty cool too. He seems way too happy about Mark Grace tagging him.

Matt said...

The Carr/Grace conga line wins for me!

Mike said...

Gotta go with Carr...THOSE arent buoys!!
