The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 11: Numbers 91-99

Frankenset Page #42 WINNER -- 1992 Stadium Club #376 Greg Gagne (10 votes)

Who says bunting isn't fun?

Despite a lower-than-usual vote turnout, Greg Gagne took last week's page without much controversy, collecting 10 tallies (of just 29 total) for the win. Derek Parks finished second with six votes, and Tom McCraw (who I actually thought was gonna win) came in third with five. I don't (yet) specifically collect cards of guys bunting, but this is easily one of the finer shots of the sort I've seen.

And given how many failed bunts I see in the game these days, a lot of guys could do with a little studying of Gagne's form here.

Thankfully, we're back to a completed page this week: the Random Number Generator spit out #11, so we'll be taking a look at that page (#s 91-99) tonight.

Let's meet the newest nine.

2018 Topps #91 Travis D'Arnaud

Right into your living room. 

2018 Stadium Club #92 Kyle Farmer

I'm pretty sure this is the only card I own of a dude catching a ceremonial first pitch. 

2016 Stadium Club #93 CJ Wilson

[insert lyric from "Kung-Fu Fighting" here]

 1992 Upper Deck Minors #94 Chris Seelbach

You know you're in the minor leagues when you're dumping baseballs from a milk crate into a warped shopping cart.

 1997 Pinnacle #95 Delino DeShields

A fab double dip on a not-so-fab design.

1993 Stadium Club #96 Joe Oliver

Yer out! 

2000 Stadium Club #97 Mickey Morandini

A wonderful twin killing at Wrigley. 

1994 Upper Deck #98 Kent Hrbek

Can I speak to Hugh Jass? 

1993 Upper Deck #99 Mark Portugal

The elusive autograph/shades/lollipop triad.

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

Happy voting!

I voted for the CJ Wilson. But I love the photography on all of those Stadium Club cards, old and new.

The DeShields double dip is a piece of mastery!

Kung fu CJ got my vote!

Brian said...

Hrbek crank calling the bullpen again...always good for a laugh!

Easy call here - the Wilson one always cracks me up!

So many good cards to choose from. I'll go with the Stadium Club Joe Oliver, though.

Tough one this week, nice job! I went with Seelbach, because of the milk crate and shopping cart.
