Last week's frankenset voting came down to the wire.
Win -- 1973 Topps #302 Terry Crowley (16 votes)
Place -- 1996 Stadium Club #299 Fernando Vina (13 votes)
Show -- 1994 Pinnacle #304 Pat Meares (4 votes)
Records were set all over the place. Crowley's 16 votes are the most we've had for a single card since this whole frankenset business started. Vina's 13 are a new record for most tallies in a loss.
And the 36 total votes are a new single week record as well, so a huge, huge thanks to everyone who made last week's frankenset page so exciting. It took hours of deciding, but I ended up giving Vina the slight edge over Crowley with my tally.
Both are among my favorite cards in the entire set, and I can definitely see why Mr. Crowley ended up taking the crown.
I don't know if this week's frankenset page can match the drama of the last one, but let's give it a shot.
Here are the nominees.
1997 Upper Deck #307 Scott Erickson
AL pitcher at the plate!
1990 Upper Deck #308 Ed Whitson
Props to pitcher Ed Whitson for somehow making it to second base.
1996 Stadium Club #309 Scott Servais
Didn't your mom ever tell you to not look directly at the sun?!
1971 Topps #310 Tommie Agee
I can't help but wonder if this magnificent shot was taken during the same game as the famous (and eerily similar) '71 Topps Bud Harrelson.
1992 Score #311 Jeff Reed
I'm at a loss for words every time I see this card.
I've always wanted to scan it side-by-side like that.
1995 Upper Deck #312 Steve Buechele
A little tyke on the field at Wrigley.
1994 Upper Deck #313 Kurt Abbott
1992 Topps #314 Jeff Huson
A fantastic double play marred only by the unfortunate Jose Canseco cameo.
2002 UD Victory #315 Jason Bere
This pitcher at the plate (and our third different Cub) closes out this week's frankenset page.
