We had a close one last week.
Win -- 1995 SP #104 Ray Lankford (6 votes)
Place (tie) -- 2015 Stadium Club #100 Alex Cobb, 1991 Score #101 Kirt Manwaring (5 votes each)
Show (tie) -- 1994 Pinnacle #103 Jerald Clark, 1996 Score #108 Mike Macfarlane (4 votes each)
The acrobatic Ray Lankford edged out a one-vote victory over a couple of fierce competitors in Alex Cobb and Dime Box Frankenset MVP Kirt Manwaring last week, earning six of the 28 total tallies last week, mine included.
Besides the obvious quirkiness factor, I've always loved the Lankford for the sheer mystery of what exactly caused him to do a batter's box handstand in the first place.
We've got a fresh page of cards this week, all looking to win that prestigious frankenset crown.
Let's meet the nominees.
2001 Stadium Club #109 Mike Williams
The rare pitcher-centric play at the plate.
1995 Topps #110 Walt Weiss
Double dipping the psychedelic '95 Topps way.
1993 Upper Deck #111 Brady Anderson
That hopeless feeling.
1999 Stadium Club #112 Chan Ho Park
Tough to tell if that's Dubble Bubble or good old Bazooka gum.
1995 Pinnacle #113 Mike Macfarlane
One PO'ed backstop.
2001 Upper Deck #114 Rey Sanchez
Turning two at Yankee Stadium.
2015 Topps Update #US-115 Stephen Vogt
A touching, candid moment from last year's Midsummer Classic.
1983 Fleer #116 Dennis Leonard
Quality time with the men in blue.
1993 Upper Deck #117 Lance Parrish
We close with a sacred catcher-runner-ump PATP combo from the beautiful '93 UD checklist.
