The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 54: Numbers 478-486

Frankenset Page #73 WINNER -- 2013 Topps #649 Ryan Hanigan (8 votes)

I sometimes worry about posting the higher-numbered pages in my frankenset because they're often a bit sparse and generally less exciting than others in the binder.

Despite being the second-to-last page in the frankenset, however, I thought last week's group was fairly solid, and the king of the super high-numbers ended up being the diving Ryan Hanigan, who took eight of the 31 total votes en route to the victory -- with both Steve Decker and Alex Cole on his heels (6 votes each).

As a frankenset builder, I'm ecstatic when exciting cards like the Hanigan wind up in the #500-600 range, because wow can they be scarce when it comes to filling my binder.

We're staying in the upper reaches of the frankenset binder this week, but thankfully the group is back to a full nine -- the Random Number Generator spit out #54, so we'll be taking a look at that page (#s 478-486) on the blog tonight.

Let's meet the nominees.

1976 Topps #478 Lynn McGlothen

A smile made for baseball cards.

2017 Topps #479 Ryan Madson

I've often thought about starting a high-five mini-collection. 

2012 Topps #480 JJ Putz

Those aren't pillows! 

2018 Topps #481 Ronald Torreyes

How To Crop A Baseball Card 101. 

1991 Leaf #482 Wally Backman

Double dip! 

1970 Topps #483 Gail Hopkins

That time Topps made a dude look like a zombie.

1996 Collector's Choice #484 Rex Hudler

Best card back ever! 

1959 Topps #485 Ryne Duren

The continuing saga of Ryne Duren and His Coke-Bottle Shades, and his hopes to win another frankenset page. 

1994 Pinnacle #486 Walt Weiss

The forever double-dipping Walt Weiss strikes again.

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

Happy voting!

Some great cards in this run. With Lynn's smile, the Brave cameo, and my choice Hudler milking the cow.

How can ya not go with cow milking!?

Fuji said...

Milking the cow!

Matt said...

Got milk?

I love the Ryne Duren card, but I have to vote for Hudler.

Tim said...

The JJ Putz is nice and all. There's just no denying Rex Hudler milking a cow. I swear Walt Weiss has some of the best and most frequent double play cards.
