The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 3: Numbers 19-27

Frankenset Page #57 WINNER -- 1994 Topps #511 Devon White (16 votes)

I've said it many times: I try my best to remain an impartial third-party when I post these frankenset pages.

That's easier said than done sometimes. Devon White reading his fan mail was so obviously my favorite suspect from last week's page: it sums up my frankenset so well, in that it's weird and quirky, a moment in the baseball life never seen on cardboard. Thankfully, a good chunk of you readers agreed with me: Devon ran away with the victory, taking 16 of the 36 total votes en route to a cruise-control win.

I thank you, Devon White thanks you, and Devon White's fans thank you.

With the dwindling number of remaining pages, we jump back into the low numbers with our latest frankenset group: according to the Random Number Generator, Page 3 (#s 19-27) is up for grabs this week.

Let's meet the hopefuls.

2017 Stadium Club #19 DJ LeMahieu

Just Stadium Club being its usual spectacular self. 

1998 Stadium Club #20 Jay Buhner

Great leap, even greater fan reactions.

2019 Topps Gypsy Queen #21 Matt Davidson

There's liquid coming from every corner of this card. 

1993 SP #22 Damion Easley

A particularly violent double dip here. 

1999 Team Best #23 Giuseppe Chiaramonte

Minor league throwback(!), and bonus points for having the most Italian name ever. 

1995 Stadium Club #24 Julian Tavarez

Talent comes in many forms. 

2016 Stadium Club #25 Chris Archer


1992 Studio #26 Jose Rijo

Which way's the gun show? 

1996 Upper Deck #27 Gary DiSarcina

It seems like a lot of my pages end with double dips, and I'm completely okay with that.

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

Happy voting!

Lots of great stuff here to choose from like the Arrenado cameo on a card featuring a baseball card, catching sunflower seeds, and a heck of a throwback.

That Chiramonte is in one of my all-time favorite uniforms (I intend to buy it from Ebbets at some point) and the way he's wearing it wiht the rolled sleeves is fantastic.

Greatest. Page. Ever. I would be proud any one of those cards in my collection.

Matt said...

So many worthy candidates! Going with Tavarez on this one!

I loved both the Rijo and Alvarez cards, but I ended up voting for Buhner. It was close though.

This was a rock solid page. I went with Buhner though. He has mad hops.
