The dime box frankenset, Page 63: Numbers 559-567

Let's take a look at how last week's frankenset voting played out.

Win -- 1975 Topps #550 Ralph Garr (16 votes)

Place -- 1991 Upper Deck #552 Lance Parrish (10 votes)

Show -- 1986 Fleer #557 Glenn Brummer (6 votes)

As I expected, the helmetless Ralph Garr earned the victory by a comfortable margin. As one of the more recognizable subjects from the '75 Topps checklist, he took 16 of the 41 total votes (including mine).

It's the second straight week that vintage has walked away with the frankenset crown.

Will this week be a third straight vintage victory?

Only one way to find out.

This very special Mother's Day page is dedicated to all the fantastic mothers out there, including my own.

2014 Topps #559 Asdrubal Cabrera

Looks safe to me. 

2011 Topps #560 Chris Iannetta

Out by a mile.

1993 Upper Deck #561 Ricky Jordan

Making a gem of a catch in front of the chainlink fence.

2005 Topps #562 Michael Cuddyer

Throwing it back to the days of the powder blues. 

1991 Upper Deck #563 Junior Felix

The swift kick in the rear on the flip side is why this one made the frankenset.

My OCD apologizes for not allowing me to store cards back-side-first in my binders.

1976 Topps #564 Kurt Bevacqua

The eternal bubble-blowing champion. 

1992 Upper Deck #565 Darren Lewis

Signing for some Spring Training fanatics. 

1991 Topps #566 Craig Wilson

The talents of big leaguers extend far beyond simply baseball.

2014 Topps #567 Donovan Solano

Turning two with an Anthony Rizzo cameo closes out this week's frankenset page, one that I unwittingly bookended with 2014 Topps.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!
