Frankenset Page #37 WINNER -- 1996 Stadium Club #333 Jay Buhner (13 votes)
As I post each week's frankenset page, I like to go through and pick out which card I think might win -- not necessarily my favorite of the bunch, just the card I think will resonate most.
My inkling this time around was correct: while he wouldn't have been my own personal choice, Jay Buhner took home the crown last week, as I thought he would. Buhner received 13 of the 34 total votes for a comfortable victory -- the only real competition came from outfielder/point-guard Adam Lind (10 votes).
I can't say I've ever seen a point-of-impact shot quite like the Buhner before, so I'm happy to add it to the Gallery of Frankenset Champions.
I was unexpectedly asked to work an extra shift yesterday, which is why this week's frankenset post comes a day later than usual (don't my managers know I have a blog to run here?).
Hopefully the delay doesn't affect the results of our newest batch of nine -- as handed down by the almighty Random Number Generator, let's take a look at Page 32 (#s 280-288) of the frankenset here today.
1995 Stadium Club #280 Thomas Howard
Wall climbing at its finest.
2018 Stadium Club #281 Brian Dozier
On the dugout steps.
2016 Topps Update #US282 Will Harris
High-fives aplenty at the Midsummer Classic.
2016 Stadium Club #283 Rougned Odor
1998 Stadium Club #284 Sean Berry
Can't say I own another card of a dude in a cockpit.
1992 Leaf #285 Mickey Tettleton
Play at the plate!
1958 Topps #286 Gino Cimoli
A card I first encountered in the Baseball Hall of Shame books I read dozens of times as a kid, notable for the fact that some rabid Topps employee airbrushed the bat right out of poor Gino Cimoli's hands (the penciled-in .564 on my copy remains a mystery, however).
1998 Fleer Tradition #287 Kevin Appier
The ever-rare American League pitcher at the plate.
1992 Pinnacle #288 Bob Tewksbury
Bob Tewksbury: pitcher by day, Picasso by night.
That just about does it for this week's page -- the polls are now on the sidebar.
