Frankenset Page #52 WINNER -- 1972 Topps #464 Jim Roland (11 votes)
Once again, the blogosphere succeeded in making me happy.
I badly wanted the '72 Jim Roland to win last week's page because it just oozes so much pure joy -- I figured he would, but we've had bigger surprises before in the frankenset. Thankfully, y'all didn't let me down: Roland took an early lead and topped the page, collecting 11 of the 32 total votes en route to the victory. The '91 Dwight Smith (7 votes) and '71 Fritz Peterson (6 votes) were the closest also-rans.
I'm happy as Roland (that needs to be a phrase) to add him to the Gallery of Frankenset Champions.
We flip back to the front of the binder with this week's page -- the Random Number Generator gifted us with #2 this week, so we'll be taking a look at that early page of the frankenset (#s 10-18) here tonight.
Let's meet the hopefuls.
2017 Stadium Club #10 Danny Santana
I'm a sucker for a good dugout shot.
2018 Stadium Club #11 Tzu-Wei Lin
I'm also a sucker for panoramas.
2000 Topps Gallery #12 Ray Lankford
If you hate Mike Scioscia, then this card's for you.
1991 Topps #13 Mariano Duncan
I freely admit that double play cards can run together after a while, but this one has always stood out for the curiously matching red jerseys and the Ozzie Smith cameo.
2015 Topps Opening Day #14 Michael Taylor
1994 Topps #15 Jay Bell
Double dip thrills.
2007 Upper Deck #16 Alvin Colina
Not a bad card for a dude whose big league career lasted exactly two games(!).
2016 Stadium Club #17 Raul Mondesi
It still boggles my mind that Raul Mondesi made his major league debut in the 2015 World Series -- which the Royals won, obviously.
1992 Donruss Triple Play #18 Eric Anthony
I wondered if the '74 Derrel Thomas was the most zoomed-out card ever a few pages ago, but I think this one has it beat.
That's it for this week's page. The polls are now on the sidebar.
