Let's take a look at how last week's frankenset voting turned out.
Win -- 1992 Stadium Club #232 Andy Van Slyke (9 votes)
Place (tie) -- 2014 Topps #226 Sean Doolittle, 1993 Stadium Club #228 Rick Wilkins, 1995 Collector's Choice Special Edition #234 Alex Fernandez (5 votes each)
Show -- 1995 Topps #227 Wayne Kirby (2 votes)
The tallies on this particular page were nearly all clustered between a few different cards, but the Van Slyke took the lead from the start and didn't let go. I agreed with the masses on this one, as I also voted for the diving Pirate.
Perhaps the best eight cents I've ever spent on Just Commons.
Here's a look at this week's nominees.
I have somehow managed to fill each and every number between 1-234 with cards I've deemed frankenset worthy.
Slot #235 is the first empty one in this binder. As a result, this week's frankenset page will only feature eight contestants.
Here they are.
1993 Upper Deck #236 Shane Mack
One of many brilliant action-packed cards from 1993 Upper Deck in this frankenset.
1982 Topps #237 Rusty Kuntz
Let's get a Rusty Kuntz autograph!
2012 Topps Update #US-238 Shawn Camp
Even a Sox fan has to admit that those are some sweet Cubs throwbacks.
1979 Topps #239 Willie Horton
A rare reverse-negative error card, as evidenced by the flipped Blue Jays logo on Horton's helmet.
1995 Score #240 Sid Bream
Another nice autograph shot, although the name Sid Bream isn't nearly as funny as Rusty Kuntz.
2008 Upper Deck #241 Jeff Francis
Pitcher at the plate!
2004 Fleer Tradition #242 Desi Relaford
1993 Upper Deck #243 Charles Nagy
A nice shot from the early days of throwbacks, coupled with a rare pre-interleague AL pitcher at the plate on the back.
I'm still on a vigorous search to fill this first empty slot in my frankenset. For now, though, I'll ask that you decide between these eight candidates with a quick tally.
The polls are now on the sidebar.
