The dime box frankenset, Page 54: Numbers 478-486

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

Win -- 1971 Topps #476 Dal Maxvill (19 votes)

Place -- 1991 Topps #472 Kirt Manwaring (8 votes)

Show -- 1998 Fleer Tradition #469 Heathcliff Slocumb (7 votes)

Vintage once again reigned supreme as Dal Maxvill's double dip took the crown by a landslide. His 19 votes represented more than half of the 37 total tallies. In what was one of the easiest choices I've made in this frankenset business so far, Maxvill received my nod.

When vintage gets going, it's hard to stop.

You won't find any vintage on this page, but we still have a great batch of contestants.

Like last week, we'll only be choosing between eight nominees this week. I still haven't secured a card for the #481 slot yet.

Let's meet the frankenset hopefuls.

1989 Score #478 Dave Anderson

Double dipping at Wrigley with a Mark Grace cameo. 

1994 Upper Deck #479 Don Slaught

I'm a little freaked out by all the disembodied legs on this play at the plate. 

1993 Topps #480 Pat Listach

There goes the barrel. 

1996 Collector's Choice #482 Gary DiSarcina

We are the champions, my friends... 

1993 Stadium Club #483 Dave Valle

Stadium Club may be action-heavy, but they could still pull off a posed shot as good as anyone. 

2008 Upper Deck #484 Garrett Atkins

Night baseball at its finest. 

1994 Topps #485 Joe Oliver

He's no Kirt Manwaring, but Joe Oliver has a lot of fantastic cards in this frankenset.

1997 Upper Deck #486 Todd Stottlemyre

We close with a shot of Mr. Stottlemyre helping his own cause.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

Love that Atkins card. It made my frankenset, as well!

That Atkins card is him hitting a home run in game 4 of the 2007 World Series earning it a spot on my top Rockies cards of all-time.

Atkins gets my vote as well. I've featured that same card on my own blog and it's a beauty.

I wanted to vote for the Sluggo card, but the Atkins is just too cool.
