Frankenset Page #19 WINNER -- 2004 Upper Deck #166 Kerry Robinson (15 votes)
I try to remain unbiased as I watch the votes accumulate with each passing week, but sometimes I can't help rooting for a specific card to win.
That happened with last week's page -- and as the days rolled on, I was happy to know that I wasn't alone in my appreciation for this Kerry Robinson card, an obscure classic from 2004 Upper Deck that I so badly wanted to add to the Gallery of Frankenset Champions (also exciting because the 2000s are probably the least represented decade in my frankenset). It wasn't even much of a contest: Robinson won going away, taking 15 of the 40 total tallies for the easy and satisfying victory.
The vote total was among the biggest we've seen since I started this second frankenset (thanks to all of you!) and, in my obvious opinion, I think y'all picked the right card to win.
We shift from the low- to the high-numbers with this week's page -- the Random Number Generator spit out #58 this time around, so we'll be looking at the page of the frankenset (#s 514-522) here tonight.
I'll try to keep any bias I might have under wraps, but in the meantime let's meet the nominees.
