The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 19: Numbers 163-171

Frankenset Page #14 WINNER -- 1998 Topps #119 Orlando Merced (9 votes)

I feel a little bad for last week's page -- it had to suffer through National Week, which meant that total votes took a nosedive.

Though voting was down by about a third, I don't know that the outcome would've changed either way -- Orlando Merced won pretty handily, taking nine of the slim 24 total tallies (no other card received more than four votes). Honestly, I didn't peg Merced as a force to be reckoned with on last week's page -- Hal Morris was probably my pick to win -- so my readers pleasantly surprised me there.

Welcome to the Gallery of Frankenset Champions, Orlando!

Now that National Week has come and gone, let's hope that voting totals return to something resembling normal with our latest page here -- as chosen by the Random Number Generator, Page 19 (#s 163-171) is up for grabs this week.

Let's meet the nominees, shall we?

1995 Topps #163 Alex Fernandez


1984 Fleer #164 Lloyd Moseby

Blue borders, blue jerseys, blue headband. 

1998 Upper Deck #165 Todd Hundley

2004 Upper Deck #166 Kerry Robinson

One of those cards I like more and more every time I look at it. 

1997 Collector's Choice #167 Rey Ordonez

Leaping Ordonez! 

2018 Stadium Club #168 Chris Archer


1983 Fleer #169 Ron Reed

Rolaids™ Reliever Ron Reed. 

1996 Upper Deck #170 Gregg Jefferies

Double derp. 

1993 Upper Deck #171 Doug Jones

Doug Jones looks vaguely like a '70s porn star, so there's probably an inappropriate joke in here somewhere.

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

Happy voting!

I see 3 in there that could take the prize.

This is the third time I've seen Doug Jones in about a week, but I am still going with Robinson.

I was all into baseball and baseball cards back in 1983... and I don't remember Ron Reed or him winning the NL Rolaids Relief Award. Figured it would have been Bruce Sutter or Jeff Reardon.

Anyways I voted for Fernandez and that quick tag at first base.

The Kerry Robinson card looks like the cover of an album titled "Lost in a Feeling" or something similar.
