My Twins Frankenset: Page 22

This is it! Last page in the binder. I will probably start to shift focus to some other projects.

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 22:
 And the backs . . .
190 - Bert Blyleven 2011 Topps Lineage (Diamond Anniversary)
191 - Jose Berrios 2013 Bowman Chrome Prospects
192 - Carl Pavano 2011 Allen & Ginter's
193 - Dave Goltz 1980 Topps (autographed)
194 - Bob Allison 1967 Topps
195 - Kent Hrbek 1995 Upper Deck
196 - Kevin Tapani 1991 Fleer Ultra
197 - Shane Mack 1994 Upper Deck
198 - Lenny Green 1963 Topps

This has been a pretty fun project to put together, I might extend it in the future, but I am happy with the results so far. Thanks to Tony from the Off-Hiatus Blog for the autographed Dave Goltz card. I think both of the vintage cards came to me via Mark Hoyle. I couldn't have filled all these pages without the blogging community sending me a small army of Twins in 2015.

Shane Mack sliding into home is my favorite of this bunch - a fitting end to the list, I would say!
