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.
