There's was very little dissension from the the last row I did, with most of the comments agreeing with my choices. That's a good thing right? Let's see if I can do it again!
Favorite Card: 2001 Sunoco Dream Team #7 Fred Lynn/Jim Rice
My Choice: same
My hope with this Frankenset is that I'll be able to show a little love to the lesser known guys like Morton. He wouldn't be a bad choice here either, especially with that building in the background. I just couldn't pass up an oddball card of the "Gold Dust Twins" though!
Favorite Card: 1991 Fleer - Pro-Visions #8 Mike Greenwell
My Choice: same
The Greenwell Pro-Vision is one of my all-time favorite Red Sox cards, and as much as I like the other two contenders, there is no way I'm not putting this card in the Frankenset.
Favorite Card: 1991 Fleer - Pro-Visions #9 Roger Clemens
My Choice: 1994 Upper Deck Baseball: The American Epic - GM #9 Ted Williams
Good gravy, I have a lot of Roger Clemens cards! As you may have guessed from the previous slot, I have a fondness for those old Fleer Pro-Vision inserts. The Clemens in particular is majestic. A fantastic black and white photo of a young Ted Williams is the obvious choice, however, and I have no regrets putting a legend like him in the 9-hole!
With these selections, I have completed the first page of my Frankenset!
Not bad if I do say so. A nice mix of players for sure. I like how the center column ended up with a greenish hue, and having two horizontal cards doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. (I think it helps that the cards are in opposite corners, giving it a little symmetry.) My only complaint is an overall lack of action, with 3 guys just standing with the bat on their shoulders.
