The Non-Reds Frankenset: Cards #469 - 486

The Non-Reds Frankenset: Cards #415 - 450

It's been nearly a month since I last opened up my non-Reds Frankenset binder so what better time than right now to get back to building my set?  As usual, I'll build the next four pages and show a scan of each page as I go.

Cards 415 - 423:


Best card on the page:  Lee Stevens playing street hockey has to take the cake for best card on the page. 
Worst card on the page:  I don't love having two missing spots, nor do I love having two cards of Mark Grace on the same page.  That all said, the Dale Sveum card is pretty crappy and probably the worst on the page.
#'s missing still:  91, 190, 191, 193, 194, 195, 196, 196, 198, 199, 227, 279, 347, 353, 368, 369, 373, 375, 399, 401, 406, 415, 417

Cards 424 - 432:


Best card on the page:  This is a mixed bag of a page.  Lovers of cheesy baseball cards will probably say that the Pat Listach Stadium Club card is the best while others may pick the "vintage" 1981 Donruss card.  For me, I have to go cheesy and give the nod to Listach!
Worst card on the page:  Nothing terrible on this page but if I could replace one card it'd probably be either the Reggie Jefferson or the David Cone card.
#'s missing still:  91, 190, 191, 193, 194, 195, 196, 196, 198, 199, 227, 279, 347, 353, 368, 369, 373, 375, 399, 401, 406, 415, 417

Cards 433 - 441:


Best card on the page:  I enjoy the Al Martin card a lot though I am curious if anyone knows what stadium is in the background of Carlos Delgado's card in the middle of the page.
Worst card on the page:  The Melvin Nieves is nothing special, especially for a Stadium Club card.  
#'s missing still:  91, 190, 191, 193, 194, 195, 196, 196, 198, 199, 227, 279, 347, 353, 368, 369, 373, 375, 399, 401, 406, 415, 417, 436

Cards 442 - 450:


Best card on the page:   Easy choice here:  that Lance Johnson Stadium Club card is awesome.  That's the type of card that makes me happy to be building a non-Reds Frankenset!  
Worst card on the page:  Tarasco, Belle, or Fischlin...take your pick as none of those cards are particularly worthy of a spot in my Frankenset.
#'s missing still:  91, 190, 191, 193, 194, 195, 196, 196, 198, 199, 227, 279, 347, 353, 368, 369, 373, 375, 399, 401, 406, 415, 417, 436, 445

That does it for this batch of pages.  Overall, a solid bunch of cards considering the fact that we are now in the middle of the 400s in terms of card numbers.  There's much less to choose from with the higher card numbers so I can't complain about most of what I have in the binder now!

  1. Your query about the stadium at which the photo of Carlos Delgado was taken got me curious, too, so I went on a quick Google search. With personnel from the Orioles in the background, I figured that it was their spring training site from ~1993, which appears to be Al Lang Stadium in Tampa. It appears to have been repurposed as a soccer stadium, but the overhang in the back of the park looks identical. https://media.wtsp.com/assets/WTSP/images/599913715/599913715_1920x1080.jpg

  2. Wow. Bobby Cox looks so young on his 81D card.
