The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 46: Numbers 406-414

Frankenset Page #72 WINNER -- 1973 Topps #645 Bob Locker (19 votes)

This was a drubbing in every sense of the word.

Not surprisingly, Bob Locker (and his trusty Topps airbrusher) massacred the competition, taking 19 of the 33 total votes to cruise to an easy win. While every card from last week's page earned at least one vote, only one of the others got more than two tallies (Fausto Cruz with five). Locker led from start to finish.

And thus yet another gem from '73 Topps becomes immortalized in the Gallery of Frankenset Champions.

As decreed by the Random Number Generator, we'll be taking a look at Page 46 (#s 406-414) of the frankenset this week.

Hopefully the polls will be a bit closer this time, but for now, let's meet our nominees.

1971 Topps #406 Ray Sadecki

Awesome action from '71 Topps. 

2000 Pacific #407 Miguel Cairo

Double dipping with a Joe Girardi cameo. 

1994 Collector's Choice #408 Scott Hemond

Not the greatest bunting form, if you ask me. 

 2002 Fleer #409 Rey Ordonez

Throwing it back to the New York Cubans of the Negro Leagues.

1991 Upper Deck #410 Bruce Ruffin

Career .081 hitter Bruce Ruffin trying and failing to look imposing with a bat. 

 1998 Ultra Gold Medallion #411G Jose Vizcaino

A man and his tools (also please somebody help me find the base version of this card!).

 1993 Topps #412 Jamie McAndrew

Jamie McAndrew holds the wood.

1970 Topps #413 Sonny Jackson

O the indignity of being asked to bunt on your own baseball card. 

1995 Donruss #414 Jody Reed

Has there ever been a more PO'ed dude on a baseball card?

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

Happy voting!

P-town Tom said...

I gotta vote for the dude holding a log. So weird.
Also, got your package the other day. Busy with coaching, but hoping to have time to crack it open and write up a post this weekend. Thank you in advance!

Sadeki gets my vote. 9 out of 10 times, I'm gonna go with the awesome vintage action shot.

Brett Alan said...

Jamie McAndrew looks like a young Richard Kind.

Big League said...

There is at least one pissed off guy seen on a Lenny Dykstra Score card. 1996, maybe? It shows him yelling at Angel Hernandez.

^ 1995 Score

It's a tough choice between the '71 and '70 cards on this page. I've never seen that Sonny Jackson card before, so that one will get my vote.
