The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 40: Numbers 352-360

Frankenset Page #4 WINNER -- 1973 Topps #32 Fred Norman (10 votes)

Last week's page featured a bunch of great cards, but my personal favorite won the page.

The mustard uniforms, weird action shot, and empty seats were enough to give Fred Norman the crown, taking 10 of the 33 total votes for the victory. Brian Daubach (8 votes) and Derrick May (7 votes) were the next closest, but Norman pretty much led from start to finish.

We've only covered about 40 pages from the Second Frankenset thus far, but the Norman is already the sixth card from '73 Topps in the Gallery of Frankenset Champions -- which I guess isn't so surprising given the photographic excellence of '73 Topps.

Nothing from '73 Topps this time around, but we do have another solid page of nine up on the ballot tonight.

As per the Random Number Generator, we'll be taking a look at Page 40 (#s 352-360) from the frankenset this week -- let's see who we're dealing with.

1994 Stadium Club #352 Rod Correia

One can only hope Kevin Seitzer didn't get beaned on this double dip. 

 1964 Topps #353 Wally Moon

The Unibrow strikes again!

1992 Upper Deck #354 Ryan Bowen

Hitchin' a ride.

1974 Topps #355 Dave Nelson

Serenity in the on-deck circle.

1993 Select #356 Sean Lowe

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's...a dude with a 4.95 career ERA. 

1996 Upper Deck #357 Brett Butler

Signing for the Dodger faithful.

1993 Upper Deck #358 Jimmy Key

Pregame sights and sounds. 

2014 Topps #359 Sean Rodriguez

A rare moment of greatness from 2014 Topps.

1980 Topps #360 Darrell Porter

Long live Darrell Porter (and his awesome specs)!

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

Happy voting!

Baseball cards would be pointless without the fans, got to go with Butler signing the ball.

This week was a toughie. Ended up going with Key, because he's in my own backyard (@ the Oakland Coliseum).

Bo said...

You've got a couple more '73s on the way

Bulldog said...

That Bowen stands out but I'm going with Butler and the autograph!

Matt said...

There's just something about those Fenway Park scoreboard backdrops....

Almost want to go with Darrell Porter, but the Sean Rodriguez card is too good and gets my vote.

Key,like Fuji said great background shot of the Oakland Coliseum.

1974 was my first-ever set, so I had to skip the very worthy candidates and go with Dave Nelson.

Henry Blanchette said...

I love the Wally Moon card, don't get me wrong, but the Dave Nelson from '74 Topps is more of my style, so I'll use my vote for that card instead.

I know I have that Sean Lowe card somewhere in my house. I just have to find it...
