Frankenset Page #46 WINNER -- 1970 Topps #413 Sonny Jackson (12 votes)
This one went right down to the wire.
As I expected, the two vintage contestants battled it out until the end -- a couple late tallies helped the '70 Sonny Jackson eke out a victory over the '71 Ray Sadecki, 12 votes to 11 (of 39 total). There is just something inherently odd and fascinating about a guy bunting on his almighty Topps image -- and even further, it wouldn't be the last (or even second-to-last) time Jackson was asked to show bunt on his baseball cards.
For better or worse, the picture does seem to fit the player: Sonny Jackson was a .251 career hitter (and even led the league in Sacrifice Hits once!).
No vintage on this week's page, but we've still got a fun group here -- as per the Random Number Generator, Page 39 (#s 343-351) is up for grabs tonight.
Let's meet the nominees.
1999 UD Victory #343 Sterling Hitchcock
You'd think a dude would be a little more excited about winning a prestigious award.
1997 Fleer #344 Tony Eusebio
One of those cards that speaks to me for reasons I can't quite explain.
1998 Stadium Club #345 Kevin Orie
1993 Upper Deck #346 Devon White
'93 Upper Deck rules for all eternity.
1981 Fleer #347 Richard Wortham
That's a prime Green Monster sighting right there.
2015 Topps Update Throwback Variations #348 Carlos Santana
Sweet throwback from a variation set I'm still trying my darnedest to complete.
1993 Upper Deck #349 Zane Smith
1995 Collector's Choice Silver Signature #350 Andy Benes
Pitcher (kind of) at the plate -- albeit the Silver Signature version since I somehow don't yet own the base card.
2009 Upper Deck #351 Skip Schumaker
Hands and feet and dirt everywhere on this nifty PATP.
That's it for this week's page. The polls are now on the sidebar.
