Frankenset Page #54 WINNER -- 1996 Collector's Choice #484 Rex Hudler (14 votes)
Card backs aren't usually the driving force behind my frankenset picks, but then again not many card backs feature a guy milking a cow.
Not surprisingly, last week's voting resulted in a rout, with the cow-milking Rex Hudler taking 14 of the 32 total tallies for the easy win -- no other card received more than four votes. From what I've heard about Hudler and his zany ways, it seems like a perfect card for him (though it might not even be his wackiest one).
At the end of it all, I'm just glad to be able to induct a card with a cow on it into my Gallery of Frankenset Champions, so thanks, good readers.
I counted this afternoon, and it looks like we only have eight pages left to show in the second frankenset(!), so let the countdown begin with one of the final eight: according to the Random Number Generator, Page 57 (#s 505-513) is up for grabs this week.
Let's meet the nominees.
1975 Topps #505 Chris Speier
Even seemingly mundane action looks great with '75 Topps.
1995 Collector's Choice #506 Alex Fernandez
Hugs and handshakes on my favorite Collector's Choice design.
1973 Topps #507 Darrel Chaney
The rare runner-fielder-umpire triumvirate.
1995 Collector's Choice #508 Norberto Martin
A great double dip made even greater with all the Spring Training ads in the background.
1981 Topps #509 Pete Mackanin
Fact: weak-hitting middle infielders are shown bunting on 99.9 percent of their baseball cards (or at least it sure seems that way).
1992 Leaf #510 Andy Allanson
Play at the plate!
1994 Topps #511 Devon White
The one and only card I own of a dude reading his fan mail, and it's glorious.
2006 Upper Deck #512 Chris Reitsma
Signing for the youngins.
1993 Upper Deck #513 Jose Lind
Second-base action, with a cameo from Kirk Gibson's male-pattern baldness.
That's it for this week's page. The polls are now on the sidebar.
