Frankenset Page #34 WINNER -- 1995 Collector's Choice #299 Chuck Carr (12 votes)
This was a closer race than the last couple pages, but it still ended up being a pretty comfortable victory for Chuck Carr after all was said and done.
The ticklish outfielder took 12 of the 33 total votes last week, five more than the next closest competitor (Hubie Brooks). It should also be noted that each of the nine cards received at least one vote, which I always like to see.
Once again, my tastes pretty much aligned with the masses: the Carr is one of my all-time favorite Collector's Choice cards, which is saying something considering how much I love that brand.
As selected by the Random Number Generator, we're looking at Page 27 (#s 235-243) this week.
On the whole, I think it's another rather well-rounded group of nine, so let's meet them.
1993 Fleer Excel #235 Jose Oliva
If there's ever been a better logo placement on a baseball card, I've never seen it.
1999 Fleer Tradition #236 Andy Fox
An acrobatic double dip.
2011 Topps Update #US237 Ryan Roberts
This card pretty much aligns with the all-out memories I have of Ryan Roberts.
1974 Topps #238 Fran Healy
Release all the adjectives: Vintage! Horizontal! Night card! Play at the plate! Thurman Munson cameo! (Especially cool since Healy would end up serving as Munson's backup a few years later.)
1994 Collector's Choice #239 Jose Rijo
Jose Rijo, King of Shades.
1992 Upper Deck #240 Bill Pecota
2008 Upper Deck #241 Jeff Francis
Pitcher at the plate!
1998 Collector's Choice #242 Jay Buhner
Jay Buhner is cooler than you are.
1993 Upper Deck #243 Charles Nagy
A high-quality throwback closes out this week's page.
