We have ourselves a good old-fashioned tie.
Last week's frankenset page saw a fierce battle between Rob Murphy (and his trusty laptop) and the action-packed Tom Griffin. Murphy held an early lead, but a late surge by Griffin forced a tie. Both are deadlocked at 15 votes a piece. (For what it's worth, I voted for Murphy.)
As has been the tiebreaker protocol thus far, I ask the first three people who care to comment on this post to leave their choice between Murphy and Griffin. The first card to receive two of those three tie-breaking votes will take the crown.
I'll update this post once the deadlock is broken.
EDIT: We have a winner!
Win -- 1990 Upper Deck #461 Rob Murphy (15 votes + tie-breaking vote)
Place -- 1973 Topps #468 Tom Griffin (15 votes)
Show -- 1996 Upper Deck #462 Luis Sojo (5 votes)
On that note, let's jump into our next frankenset page.
We're back to eight nominees this week, as I still haven't found a worthy member to occupy the #470 slot.
Let's take a look at the contestants.

Double dipping the vintage way.

This week's page closes with a prime example of the faux-back.
The polls are now on the sidebar, and remember to help break last week's tie!
