Frankenset Page #50 WINNER -- 1994 Stadium Club #448 Erik Pappas (13 votes)
For my money, this is the biggest upset I've seen since the restart of these frankenset posts.
I thought the '71 Topps Art Shamsky would cruise to an easy win with everyone else long in the rearview mirror, as is the case with most classic vintage that pops up in my frankenset. But it wasn't to be: Erik Pappas jumped out to an early lead and never let go, taking the victory with 13 of the 38 total tallies, leaving Shamsky (10 votes) and the also-surprising Curt Leskanic (7 votes) in the dust.
That's why I'm such a fan of these frankenset posts, and the people who vote on them: you never know when they're gonna surprise you.
Could another upset be on the horizon this week?
Perhaps: the Random Number Generator spit out #5 (the lowest-numbered page yet!), so we'll be taking a look at that page (#s 37-45) here today -- let's meet the nominees.
1995 Upper Deck #37 Pat Hentgen
An impossibly rare post-DH/pre-interleague pitcher at the plate sighting.
1973 Topps #38 Mike Epstein
1995 Upper Deck Minors #39 Matt Brunson
Minor league double dip!
1972 Topps #40 Bob Barton
There's no way that cop in the background was an accident.
2016 Topps #41 Josh Harrison
1972 Topps #42 Tommy Davis
A little more "action" here than on the aforementioned Bob Barton card, I think.
1999 Stadium Club #43 Rico Brogna
I get a distinct "Pigpen" from Peanuts vibe whenever I look at this card.
2010 Upper Deck #44 Augie Ojeda
A card so nice Upper Deck apparently forgot they weren't allowed to use logos in 2010.
1986 Fleer #45 Darrell Porter
Color-coordinated glasses are the best glasses.
That's it for this week's frankenset page. The polls are now on the sidebar.
