The (Second) Dime Box Frankenset, Page 71: Numbers 631-639

Frankenset Page #3 WINNER --1995 Stadium Club #24 Julian Tavarez (7 votes + tie-breaking vote)

Here's something that hasn't happened in a while: a tie!

Stadium Club extraordinaires Jay Buhner and Julian Tavarez both finished with seven of the 34 total votes from last week's page. As is the standard tie-breaking protocol, I ask the first five readers who care to comment on this post to leave their choice between the two hopefuls. The first card to receive three of the five tie-breakers will win the page.

I'll edit this post once we have a winner.

EDIT: Tavarez wins!

In the meantime, here's a look at our latest group: according to the Random Number Generator, we're soaring back into the high-numbers here with Page 71 (#s 631-639) up for grabs this week.

Let's meet the nominees.

2012 Topps #631 Ryan Kalish


1987 Fleer #632 Bob Horner

Perhaps the only thing more impressive than hitting four homers in a game is hitting four homers in a game your team lost, which Bob Horner indeed did on July 6, 1986. 

1977 Topps #633 May Bros.

Classic card from a classic subset. 

1998 Upper Deck #634 Brian Anderson

Because apparently pitchers need BP too. 

2018 Topps #635 Cody Allen

High five! 

2009 Upper Deck #636 Clete Thomas

Butt bump? 

2014 Topps #637 Freddy Galvis

Hero for a day. 

2011 Topps #638 Ryan Madson

I'm only now starting to notice this page's rather celebratory theme.

1993 Upper Deck #639 Jeff Gardner

Meet the press.

That's it for this week's page. The polls are now on the sidebar -- and don't forget to help break last week's tie!

Happy voting!

Poor Jay Buhner.

Although, really, poor Giuseppe Chiaramonte, who should really have won because San Francisco Seals throwback.

Voting for Bob Horner, not only for the subject matter, but also because it looks like the photo was taken at night with a disposable camera.

I'll vote Buhner, and even though the Kalish is cool I think I like the Brian Anderson better. Something about a pitcher taking BP, and that purple uniform from that first year just stands out to me.

It's Thanksgiving and I get to hang with both of my brothers, so I'm going to go with the May Brothers also known as the sentimental pick.

The Bob Horner card was right up there though. I remember seeing the highlights of that event.
