Frankenset Page #2 WINNER -- 2007 Upper Deck #16 Alvin Colvina (11 votes)
Last week's winner was a good example of a card I personally wouldn't have voted for, but one I kinda figured was gonna win.
While I'm more partial to Tzu-Wei Lin's Fenway panorama or Mariano Duncan's curious double dip, Alvin Colina took last week's page with a little help from the troops, collecting 11 of the 38 total votes for the win (Duncan was a close second with eight). Not bad for a dude who appeared in exactly two major league games, I'd say.
Now he's in the Gallery of Frankenset Champions for all of eternity.
We've only got a handful of pages left to cover in the frankenset: the Random Number Generator spit out #30 tonight, so we'll be taking a look at that page (#s 262-270) on the blog this week.
Let's meet the nominees.
