The dime box frankenset, Page 48: Numbers 424-432

Last week's frankenset voting was a nail-biter.

Win -- 1973 Topps #420 Tommie Agee (12 votes)

Place -- 1998 Ultra #416 Lee Stevens (10 votes)

Show -- 1994 Topps #422 Rey Sanchez (4 votes)

As I was expecting, it was a two-horse race between Agee and Stevens. Lee "The Great One" Stevens pulled out to an early lead, but he couldn't withstand a late charge from Mr. Agee. The Most Airbrushed Card in History took twelve of the 37 total votes, giving vintage the crown once again.

Agee becomes our first multiple frankenset king, as his 1971 Topps issue won its page a few months back.

It's also the sixth straight week I've agreed with the victor.

Can the streak continue?

We'll just have to wait and see. There's certainly a lot of odd strewn around this week's page.

Let's meet the nominees.

1998 Fleer Tradition #424 Jermaine Allensworth

The Amazing Adventures of Jermaine Allensworth, Volume 19, Issue 98. 

1998 Pacific #425 John Flaherty

John Flaherty tagging out former Rockie pitcher Roger Bailey at the plate. 

2007 Upper Deck #426 Clay Hensley

Throwin' it back to the days of the brown. 

1982 Fleer #427 Willie Wilson

A Channel 10 interview under the lights. 

1994 Collector's Choice #428 Reggie Jefferson

Hitting yellow baseballs off a tee outside of a building that looks an awful lot like my former high school. 

This card comes with a nice reverse-angle shot on the back as well.

1994 Upper Deck #429 Bob Welch

The late Bob Welch sporting some spiffy Oakland Oaks throwbacks. 

2013 Topps #430 Josh Harrison

A picturesque backdrop at PNC Park. 

The third base coach approves.

1997 Upper Deck #431 Mark Clark

Pitcher or not, that's some solid contact right there.

1993 Stadium Club #432 Pat Listach

We close with one of those strange water vapor shots from the early '90s.

Unlike most of the past few weeks, I already know where my vote is going to go. I'll be interested to see how my tally matches up with the rest of you.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

I'm 99.9% sure that Jermaine Allensworth has a playboy under that Spiderman comic.

Almost too staged but I like the Jermaine.

I wish I could go back in the future and tell Jermaine that he better drop the comic and hit the cage. His career would have thanked me.
