The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 23: Numbers 199-207

Frankenset Page #64 WINNER -- 2013 Topps #568 Steve Lombardozzi (14 votes)

Last week's page was basically a two-horse race.

Steve Lombardozzi and the Gatorade Shower staved off a late run from the famous '74 Topps Ralph Garr, collecting 14 of the 37 total tallies (to Garr's 12) for the close win -- no other card received more than six votes. Vintage and '90s stuff make up the majority of my frankenset champions, so I think it's fun when a more modern nominee like Lombardozzi (one that I actually remember pulling from a pack) sneaks in there.

Welcome to the gallery.

We've only got about ten pages left to cover in the frankenset, and here's one of the remaining few -- as per the Random Number Generator, we'll be looking at Page 23 (#s 199-207) of the binder tonight.

Let's meet the hopefuls.

1982 Donruss #199 Rick Cerone

Seriously, I could stare at this card for hours. 

2013 Topps #200 Scott Downs

Hero number throwback! 

2006 Upper Deck #201 Todd Jones

Those giant circa-2006 iPods seem just as outdated as Walkmans these days. 

1994 Upper Deck #202 Chuck Carr

The lost art of the drag bunt. 

2014 Topps Update #US203 Cole Figueroa


1960 Topps #204 Ryne Duren

You can find Ryne Duren's Coke-bottle shades next to Wally Moon's unibrow in the Frankenset Gift Shop.  

1999 Fleer Tradition #205 David Dellucci

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's...David Dellucci? 

1993 Leaf #206 Kevin Maas

An umpire, a tarpaulin, and a shirtless dude, all in one tidy baseball card. 

2012 Topps Update #US207 Greg Dobbs

Kinda gives new meaning to the whole "put the team on your back" thing.

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

Happy voting!

when I saw the 9 images in thumbnail form on twitter, I thought about the Cole Figueroa card "What is that on that one card? A giant leaf?"

My "gut" also immediately decided to go with Cerone. Always liked that card.

Pains me to vote for a Yankee, but I gotta go with "Shades" Duren!
