My Twins Frankenset: Page 9

I've seen a few FrankenSets out there - for example John has a Braves set and a Uniform Number Set, Tom has a Cubs set, Nick has the Dime Box FrankenSet, Robert has a serial numbered card set, Night Owl has a night card set. Jeff's got a White Sox FrankenSet. I'm sure there are many others. Tell me about yours in the comments!

I decided this would be a good way to at least start organizing my Twins cards.

My own "rules" for the set are pretty simple -
1. Each card should be a Twins player in a Twins uniform (and exclude multi-team cards)
2. If at all possible, each page should have 9 unique players and 9 unique sets
3. Have Fun (Mandatory)

Here's Page 9:

and the backs:

73 -  Justin Morneau 2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces
74 -  Kent Hrbek 1993 Upper Deck
75 -  Bob Allison 1963 Topps
76 -  Brian Harper 1992 Donruss Triple Play
77 -  Kirby Puckett 1995 Upper Deck Collector's Choice
78 -  Joe Mauer 2012 Allen & Ginter's
79 -  Brad Radke 1995 Topps Traded
80 -  Tony Oliva 1973 Topps
81 -  Glen Perkins 2007 Upper Deck MLB Artifacts

Two Rookies, Two Vintage, but I think Kent Hrbek's card is my favorite of this group.


  1. I've been searching for a copy of that Puckett for the longest time...because of the throwback, of course. I'm hoping it falls out of a dime box one day.

    1. Oh, yes, that deserved a mention as well - Guys from the era that Puckett played in rarely donned throwback uniforms, it's actually pretty rare to find a card of Kirby's (or Kent Hrbek, for that matter) in a 60's era jersey.
