The dime box frankenset, Page 27: Numbers 235-243

Let's take a look at how last week's frankenset voting turned out.

Win -- 1992 Stadium Club #232 Andy Van Slyke (9 votes)

Place (tie) -- 2014 Topps #226 Sean Doolittle, 1993 Stadium Club #228 Rick Wilkins, 1995 Collector's Choice Special Edition #234 Alex Fernandez (5 votes each)

Show -- 1995 Topps #227 Wayne Kirby (2 votes)

The tallies on this particular page were nearly all clustered between a few different cards, but the Van Slyke took the lead from the start and didn't let go. I agreed with the masses on this one, as I also voted for the diving Pirate. 

Perhaps the best eight cents I've ever spent on Just Commons.

Here's a look at this week's nominees.

I have somehow managed to fill each and every number between 1-234 with cards I've deemed frankenset worthy.

Slot #235 is the first empty one in this binder. As a result, this week's frankenset page will only feature eight contestants.

Here they are.

1993 Upper Deck #236 Shane Mack

One of many brilliant action-packed cards from 1993 Upper Deck in this frankenset.

1982 Topps #237 Rusty Kuntz

Let's get a Rusty Kuntz autograph!


2012 Topps Update #US-238 Shawn Camp

Even a Sox fan has to admit that those are some sweet Cubs throwbacks.

1979 Topps #239 Willie Horton

A rare reverse-negative error card, as evidenced by the flipped Blue Jays logo on Horton's helmet.

1995 Score #240 Sid Bream

Another nice autograph shot, although the name Sid Bream isn't nearly as funny as Rusty Kuntz.

2008 Upper Deck #241 Jeff Francis

Pitcher at the plate!

2004 Fleer Tradition #242 Desi Relaford

Double dip!

1993 Upper Deck #243 Charles Nagy

A nice shot from the early days of throwbacks, coupled with a rare pre-interleague AL pitcher at the plate on the back.

I'm still on a vigorous search to fill this first empty slot in my frankenset. For now, though, I'll ask that you decide between these eight candidates with a quick tally.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

Another great page of cards to vote on. While I really want to cast my ballot of Rusty Kuntz, I have to stick with my Jays and vote for Willie Horton.

Let me know if this works for 235.
If so I can send it out to you soon. Let me know what other numbers are currently empty in your binder and I can try to hit those for you to.
