My Twins Frankenset: Page 18

Hey, why so late posting today?? I blame the end of Daylight Savings... 

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. T.J., The Junior Junkie, just started showing his Griffey 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 18:
 The Backs:

154 - Harmon Killebrew 2014 Topps Archives (1989 Topps Design)
155 - Brian Dozier 2015 Topps Archives (1976 Topps Design)
156 - Minnesota Twins Team Card 1972 Topps
157 - Zoilo Versalles 1965 O-Pee-Chee
158 - Rick Aguilera 1999 Topps
159 - Marty Cordova 1995 Score Select Select Rookie
160 - Paul Molitor 1998 Upper Deck Collector's Choice
161 - Boof Bonser 2007 Upper Deck
162 - Josmil Pinto 2014 Topps Red Hot Foil

I feel OK about having two cards from Topps Archives in a row - they show different designs at least. The big winner for me is:
1965 AL MVP Zoilo Versalles looks like a grandpa in those glasses, but he had a fantastic season in '65, and it didn't hurt that the Twins made the World Series that year. 
And Hey, O-Pee-Chee!


  1. Any page that contains a Zoilo Versalles and a Boof Bonser can't be bad!

    1. Boof almost got booted - I had a Joe Mauer 2007 Upper Deck card in the slot currently occupied by the 1972 Team card, but I think I made the right decision to Bring the Boof.
