Frankenset Page #7 WINNER -- 2008 Bowman Prospects #BP58 Scott Van Slyke (6 votes + tie-breaking vote)
This is just about unheard of: last week's frankenset page ended in a FOUR-WAY TIE.
The quartet of cards seen above all ended up with six of the 35 total tallies (and Rich Chiles came one vote shy of making it a five-way tie). This is uncharted territory for me. I've never had a three-way tie for first since I started doing these pages, much less a four-way deadlock. I guess I'll treat it the same as a regular tie: I ask anyone who cares to comment on this post to leave their choice from the four cards above. The first to receive three of these tie-breaking votes (however many comments that may take) will be the new king.
I'll update this post once we have a winner.
EDIT: Van Slyke wins!
While last week's insanity gets sorted out, here's a look at our newest nominees.
The Random Number Generator spit out #18, so we'll be voting on that page of the frankenset binder (#s 154-162) this week -- let's meet the hopefuls.
1998 Ultra #154 Jaime Navarro
Still my favorite throwbacks.
2015 Topps Pro Debut #155 Jhoan Urena
Minor league fun.
2017 Stadium Club #156 Lucas Duda
I feel like this would be a good opening frame for a horror movie.
2016 Topps Update #US157 Jameson Taillon
A rare coach cameo on a modern baseball card.
1991 Topps #158 Jose Uribe
Turning two at Wrigley (with a guest appearance from Ryno!).
2015 Topps Update #US159 Darren O'Day
A fitting card considering we're hours away from this year's Midsummer Classic -- though I must confess I'm not even 100 percent sure which one of these dudes is Darren O'Day (second from right, I think?).
1993 Upper Deck #160 John Burkett
Autographs and throwbacks, all rolled into one beautiful baseball card.
2017 Stadium Club #161 Tyler Glasnow
White Sox throwbacks may remain my favorites, but these are high on the list too.
2014 Topps #162 Josmil Pinto
Smiles, smiles everywhere.
