The dime box frankenset, Page 59: Numbers 523-531

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

Win -- 1994 Stadium Club #521 Chan Ho Park (10 votes)

Place -- 1993 Upper Deck #514 Chito Martinez (6 votes)

Show -- 1997 Upper Deck #517 Charlie O'Brien (5 votes)

It was neck-and-neck for most of the week, but a late surge from Chan Ho earned him the crown, taking ten of the 37 total votes. It's an outstanding card, no doubt, but I gave the nod to Mr. O'Brien. There's something special about having photographical evidence of a historic event in baseball history.

It's the second straight week that I've voted for someone other than the eventual victor.

With any luck, that streak might end this week.

Let's meet our newest batch of frankenset hopefuls, shall we?

1994 Stadium Club #523 Geronimo Pena

A terrific multiple-exposure/double dip combo. 

1982 Fleer #524 Pete Falcone

Got it. Got it. Need it. Got it. Need it. Need it. Got it.

1973 Topps #525 Jim Fregosi

More awesome photography from '73 Topps, this time with a Johnny Bench cameo.

1999 Fleer Tradition #526 Jim Parque

An American League hurler laying one down in a crosstown matchup at Wrigley.

2014 Topps #527 Travis Snider

Safe at home in this play at the plate/throwback combo. 

2002 Topps #528 Kerry Robinson

Kerry Robinson signing for a disembodied hand. 

1993 Upper Deck #529 Jeff Parrett

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get to the other side! 

2012 Topps #530 Cliff Pennington

Continuing the mini-collection combos with this double dip/throwback pairing. 

2013 Topps #531 Craig Gentry

We close with one heck of a Web Gem from former Ranger Craig Gentry.

The polls are now on the sidebar.

Happy voting!

Two Mets cards? That's what I call a winning page! Fregosi gets my vote, by the way. It's one of my favorite Mets cards in my collection.

That Pargue is more proof how bad my late 90's card are lacking.

And now to place the order on JustCommons to fix that issue.

I'm always a sucker for a nice catch. That Gentry is awesome.
