The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 66: Numbers 586-594

Frankenset Page #60 WINNER -- 1975 Topps #533 Rudy Meoli (17 votes)

Last week's frankenset page went about as expected.

The classic '75 Rudy Meoli drubbed the competition -- and he seemed to bring a bunch of new voters to the poll along with him. The 45 total votes were the most I've received on a single page yet, more than a dozen more than I'd received the week prior -- Meoli's 17 ran away without much of a fight. Honestly I'm a bit surprised it wasn't even more of a blowout.

Even apart from Meoli, I thought last week's page was rather well-rounded, and apparently a lot of people did too judging from the voting turnout.

This week's page probably isn't as exciting, but it sure gives a good look at a bunch of different minutiae I collect.

The Random Number Generator seems to be on a high-number kick lately -- as governed by its powers, we'll be taking a look at Page 66 (#s 586-594) of the frankenset tonight, so let's meet the nominees.

1987 Topps #586 Ben Oglivie

I feel like something exciting is happening just out of the frame of this card. 

1991 Upper Deck #587 Kurt Stillwell

A gem from Upper Deck's early years. 

2017 Topps #588 Kirk Nieuwenhuis


1996 Collector's Choice #589 Ricky Bones

Ricky Bones, one of those mediocre mid '90s dudes who seemed to consistently receive fantastic baseball cards. 

1993 Donruss #591 Lenny Harris

Donruss testing my OCD by listing Lenny Harris as a third baseman, yet showing him turning two(?).

1994 Topps #592 Doug Strange

A very Strange double dip. 

1995 Donruss #592 Brady Anderson

Broken bats on baseball cards are rare, but beautiful. 

1992 Topps #593 Steve Decker

I think I subliminally collect cards with bunting on them.

1992 Topps #594 Brian Barber

Brian Barber made history in 1992 by being drafted when he was just 11 years old.

That's it for this week's page. The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

Im voting for the name as much as the card...Ricky Bones!

Ricky Bones signed a lot, apparently. 1996 Topps has him signing his 1995 Topps card.

Lenny Harris gets my vote. Great shot. Anderson was a close second but I'll stick with Harris.

When in doubt, go with the bat rack!

I love a good broken bat card.
