The dime box frankenset, Page 61: Numbers 541-549


Last week's frankenset voting wasn't much of a contest.

Win -- 1999 Fleer Tradition #533 Terry Steinbach (19 votes)

Place -- 1992 Score #532 Ron Karkovice (4 votes)

Show (tie) -- 1993 Upper Deck #536 Kevin Young, 1993 Upper Deck #538 Alex Cole, 2010 Upper Deck #540 Jason Bergmann (2 votes each)

Voting took a bit of a dip last week for some reason, but that didn't stop Mr. Steinbach from running away with the crown. The brilliant Graduate-like shot garnered 19 of the 32 total tallies, obliterating the competition. I did indeed agree with the victor last week.

How could I not?




This is just my suspicion, but I think we might have another laugher on our hands this week.

Still, let's see if we can get those vote totals back up as we dig into our next batch of frankenset nominees.



1995 Score #541 Alex Arias

Double dipping with the underrated '95 Score design. 



1973 Topps #542 Pat Corrales

Possibly the most painful card ever printed. 



1994 Topps #543 Larry Casian

You'll get 'em next time, kid. 



1995 Topps #544 Jeff Cirillo

Throwing it back to the early days of the Brewers. 



1990 CMC #545 Jeff Carter

Two bats for the price of one. 



1998 Fleer Tradition #546 Carlos Perez

Is that your hat or are you just happy to see me?



1991 Line Drive #547 Mike Wilkins

A rare minor league pitcher at the plate. 



 1994 Topps #548 Dave Nilsson

A look at the pinstriped Brewers faux-backs.



2003 Upper Deck #549 Todd Linden

Some fun with the funny cars in San Francisco closes this week's frankenset page.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

"Possibly the most painful card ever printed." Well said. I'll always stand by the '73 Corrales as one of the greats, despite -- and wholly due to -- getting completely blown up. Gone are the days, it would seem...

Tough between Pat Corrales and Todd Linden. Those cars were Cheveron mascots at that time way

Pitcher with bat cards were actually quite common on minor league cards in the 80s and early 90s

You're right. That was easy to pick a winner.

Corrales.
