The dime box frankenset, Page 43: Numbers 379-387

Let's take a look at how last week's frankenset voting played out.

Win -- 1973 Topps #376 Frank Duffy (12 votes)

Place -- 1997 Topps #373 Jose Rijo (7 votes)

Show (tie) -- 1994 Upper Deck #371 Joey Cora, 1995 Collector's Choice #377 Lance Parrish (3 votes each)

Cards from the '90s dominate my frankenset, but the select '70s singles that pop up almost always seem to win their respective pages.

Last week was no exception, as Frank Duffy and that poor O's baserunner took the crown without much of a fight, garnering twelve of the 29 total votes. I came close to voting for Groundskeeper Jose, but I ended up agreeing with the masses this time around.

I couldn't bring myself go against such an awesome double dip, especially one of the vintage variety.

We're back to a full nine nominees now, thankfully.

It is my pleasure to present this week's special holiday frankenset page.

1993 Topps #379 Mike Munoz

Between the pose and the uniform, Topps certainly made this card as much of a throwback as possible. 

1990 Upper Deck #380 Vance Law

Sorry, Mr. Law, but you've got nothing on Johnny Bench.

2010 Topps #381 Miguel Montero

A nice post-PATP shot of one of the newest Cubs.

1994 Collector's Choice #382 Scott Leius

Pick a glove, any glove. 

1991 Line Drive #383 Gil Heredia

Minor league pitcher at the plate! 

2012 Sega Card-Gen #384 Daniel Descalso

Double dip? Check.

Throwback? Check.

Awesome Japanese oddball? Check again.

2014 Topps #385 Josh Willingham

A beautiful stadium shot makes this dugout celebration shine. 

1994 Score #386 Mike Devereaux

A rare "play at third" action shot. 

1995 Upper Deck #387 Don Slaught

This week's page closes out with a dust-filled play at the plate straight out of the Old West.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

Going with Slaught. Great action shot.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh God! You put this one quite dificult!

Don Slaught or even Mike Devereaux would have my vote but I have to go with Miguel Montero one because, besides the dust he's one of the players I collect.

Descalso just became a Rockie. I'll vote for him this week, though Mike Munoz once wore purple as well.
