Frankenset card #147
One of the things about having OCD is that I notice coincidences, anomalies, things that might defy the odds. When I first decided to put together my frankenset, I haphazardly went through my doubles boxes grabbing Angels and putting them in a box in numerical order. When I came to number 147, I noticed a coincidence (okay so anybody would have caught it. Whatever).
My two choices for #147 in the frankenset were:
|1989 Topps #147|
|1989 Upper Deck #147|
Two of the 5 major card companies gave the same player the same card number in the same year. What are the odds of that? Score just missed making it a trifecta:
|1989 Score #153|
Anyhoooo, only one card gets to make the frankenset. I'll go with.......

The Upper Deck card. After all, it was Buice who was instrumental in getting Upper Deck into the baseball card business.
