The dime box frankenset, Page 34: Numbers 298-306

Last week's frankenset voting was closer than I expected.

Win -- 1993 Upper Deck #294 Casey Candaele (7 votes)

Place -- 1994 Collector's Choice #290 Turk Wendell (6 votes)

Show -- 2012 Topps #295 Jayson Werth (4 votes)

The 26 total tallies were a bit of a drop from prior weeks, eight of the nine cards featured managed to get at least one vote. The classic Casey Candaele eked out a slim victory over the quirky Turk Wendell.

For the second straight week, I ended up voting for a card that didn't even come in the top three. I gave the singing Dwight Smith the nod (one of only two people to do so), but deep down I had a feeling the Candaele would win.

Maybe I'll finally agree with the masses this week.

Let's see if we can give those vote totals a slight bump with today's terrific page of frankenset nominees.

Here we go.

1996 Upper Deck #298 Jaime Navarro

Pitcher at the plate! 

1996 Stadium Club #299 Fernando Vina

Fernando Vina with the crushing forearm shiv.

1993 Upper Deck #300 Kyle Abbott

A rare cardboard cameo from the ball bucket.

1996 Collector's Choice #301 Mark Leiter

Another pitcher at the plate, this time with a more familiar bunting pose. 

1973 Topps #302 Terry Crowley

A very vintage play at the plate, complete with a bonus Thurman Munson appearance. 

1996 Upper Deck #303 Darren Lewis

O say, can you see... 

1994 Pinnacle #304 Pat Meares


 2013 Topps Update #US-305 Dylan Axelrod

A South Side throwback.

2014 Topps #206 Garrett Richards

Another sweet throwback from one of 2014's breakout pitchers closes out this week's page.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

had to go with the Vina. Looks almost like a brawl.

I think the Vina card will run away with this round, but I voted for the Pat Meares card.
"Derp." Couldn't have said it better myself!

In any other week, that Crowley would run away with it. But a WWE brawl wins every time.

I'm voting Pat Meares too as "Derp" pretty much summed up his entire Pirate career.
