The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 22: Numbers 190-198

Frankenset Page #11 WINNER -- 2016 Stadium Club #93 CJ Wilson (14 votes)

Last week was one of those pages where I had absolutely no idea who was gonna win.

Turns out the rest of you weren't as divided as I was: CJ Wilson took the crown without much of a challenge, taking 14 of the 41 total votes for a cruise-control win. The next closest competitor (Travis D'Arnaud) managed all of seven tallies, cementing Wilson's easy road into the Gallery of Frankenset Champions.

Also, I'm pretty sure this was the first time I've cracked 40 total votes for the week, so much thanks to all who played along!

It took a few tries for the Random Number Generator to land on a new page (we're nearly two-thirds of the way through the frankenset now), but alas, one finally arrived: this week's nine is supplied by Page 22 (#s 190-198) of the binder.

Let's meet them.

1997 Topps #190 Andy Benes

Signing for the Redbird faithful. 

2018 Stadium Club #191 Raisel Iglesias

For the win. 

2016 Stadium Club #192 Delino DeShields

In an odd coincidence, here's Delino DeShields Jr. getting soaked...just a week after a different card from 2016 Stadium Club won a page in which Delino Sr. was featured!

1996 Donruss #193 Eddie Taubensee

Even the worst sets have their high points. 

2000 Stadium Club #194 Todd Jones


2013 Topps Update #US195 Chris Johnson

Negro League throwback! 

2019 Topps #196 Adam Engel

A spectacular dual mini-collection hit from one of the frankenset's newest tenants.

2017 Stadium Club #197 Tyler Skaggs

Stadium Club panorama. 

2016 Topps Opening Day #198 Avisail Garcia

Still another coincidence: here's the second White Sox '83 throwback/at the wall combo in the same page!

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

Happy voting!

I'm taking Todd Jones because he reminds me of Rod Beck on that card.

DeSheilds - there's so much water he practically disappears!
