Frankenset Page #33 WINNER -- 1963 Topps #294 Bill Rigney (13 votes)
We have a frankenset first!
Last week marked the first time a manager has won a frankenset page. I don't have many skippers in the binder -- they don't often receive overly exciting cardboard -- but Bill Rigney managed to capture the crown with this wonderful '63 Topps card. Not that it was an easy win or anything: Rigney squeaked out a narrow one-vote victory over Bob Hamelin, taking 13 tallies to Hamelin's 12 (of 33 total).
And so it gives me great pleasure to finally induct a manager into the Gallery of Frankenset Champions -- here's to Bill Rigney!
The Random Number Generator sent me flipping to the very end of the frankenset binder this time, all the way back to the second-to-last page of the binder: Page 73 (#s 649-657) is up for grabs this week.
I still haven't found a worthy card for the #650 slot (though a quick search reveals at least one fantastic candidate), so we're down to eight nominees this week -- let's meet them.
2013 Topps #649 Ryan Hanigan
So close, yet so far.
1991 Upper Deck #651 Mike Benjamin
Kind of an awkward way to sign autographs, under the netting and all, isn't it?
1994 Bowman #652 Bobby Jones
A more conventional signing session.
1993 Score #653 Steve Decker
Ooh, palm trees!
1991 Upper Deck #654 Alex Cole
Ball four, take your base.
1972 Topps #655 Jerry Grote
The classic crouch.
2015 Topps #656 Adeiny Hechavarria
God I miss 2015 Topps.
1978 Topps #657 Bombo Rivera
Because Bombo Rivera is a highly underrated Baseball Name.
That's it for this week's page. The polls are now on the sidebar.
