The dime box frankenset, Page 22: Numbers 190-198


Not much of a surprise with last week's frankenset results.

Win -- 1984 Fleer #182 Glenn Hubbard (15 votes)

Place (tie) -- 2010 Bowman #184 Erick Aybar, 1972 Topps #186 Ron Bryant IA (3 votes each)

Show -- 2004 Topps #181 Jason Michaels (2 votes)

As expected, Glenn Hubbard and his boa constrictor took the victory by a considerable margin last week, collecting 15 of the 26 total votes (including mine, of course) to cruise to an easy crown.

It's definitely one of the cornerstones of this frankenset, no doubt.




All right, this is it: it's time to determine our 74th and final frankenset champion.

The winner of this page will be the last card thrown into the big Frankenset Extravaganza, in which we'll be voting bracket-style to determine the single best member of this frankenset. We'll get the play-in rounds underway next week.

But first, let's see who our last and final frankenset champion will be.



2011 Topps Opening Day #190 Elvis Andrus

A double dip from the 2010 Fall Classic. 



1999 Stadium Club #191 Omar Daal

It's hard to go wrong with these bird's-eye mound shots.



2012 Topps Chrome #192 Kirk Nieuwenhuis

Web Gem!



1991 Topps #193 Felix Fermin

Turning two with '91 Topps. 



1993 Upper Deck #194 Omar Olivares

An argument for the DH. 



1995 Pinnacle #195 Ray Lankford

A reverse-angle glimpse of the autograph scene. 



1995 Upper Deck Minors #196 Jayson Peterson

A literal "sunset" card. 



1995 Collector's Choice SE #197 Jose Rijo

Probably the only time you'll find a stethoscope on a baseball card.



1994 Upper Deck #198 Carlos Garcia

Our last nominee is a solid example of the wild, wacky, and sometimes weird themes I've tried to collect with this frankenset.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

My vote goes to Rijo, mainly because he had all kinds of wacky cards during that time.

Rijo would've gotten my vote if the other Red didn't have that blue "Special Edition" logo on his forehead. Instead, I had to be true to my Mets and vote for Kirk Nieuwenhuis (who I like well enough that I can spell "Nieuwenhuis" without assistance).

Two tatooine cards to choose from and I chose future dodger Omar daal although olivares almost got my vote based on your caption

Voted for Daal. I love the photos in '99 Stadium Club.
