Last week's frankenset matchup came down to the wire.
Win -- 1992 Stadium Club #446 Mike Greenwell (11 votes)
Place -- 1993 Leaf #442 Carlos Hernandez (9 votes)
Show -- 1994 Stadium Club #450 Darren Daulton (7 votes)
Greenwell and Hernandez were neck-and-neck for much of the week, but a couple late votes pushed Greenwell over the top. He ended up receiving eleven of the 40 total votes.
While I ended up voting for a card that didn't even come in the top three (Ellis Valentine), there's no doubting that this fantastic "at the wall" shot is well deserving of the victory. With the amount of Dodger fans in the blogosphere, though, I was kind of expecting Hernandez to win.
Call it an upset.
Unfortunately, I haven't yet found a worthy nominee for card #458 on this page, so we only have eight contestants this week.
But what a group of eight it is.
Let's meet them.
1996 Upper Deck #451 Joey Hamilton
A Padre pitcher at the plate, perfect for alliteration fanatics like myself.
1973 Topps #452 Paul Casanova
He's on his horse!
1989 Upper Deck #453 Ed Whitson
Doubling up on the Padre pitchers at the plate.
1997 Upper Deck #454 Rex Hudler
Rex Hudler looking for a little divine intervention.
1991 Topps #455 Walt Weiss
One of the best double dips ever.
1976 SSPC #456 Joe Hoerner
Joe Hoerner rockin' the sunhat.
1994 Collector's Choice #457 Geronimo Pena
All Pena wanted was a piggyback ride.
1996 Score #459 Mark Leiter
We close this week's page with a camera/little tyke combo, the mark of a rare double mini-collection hit.
The polls are now on the sidebar. I'll be looking for a card to fill that empty slot in the meantime.
