My Twins Frankenset: Page 15

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 15:
 And the backs:

127 -  Frank Viola 1989 Fleer
128 -  Kevin Tapani 1991 Leaf
129 -  David Ortiz 2001 Upper Deck
130 -  Kirby Puckett 1996 Upper Deck
131 -  Johan Santana 2005 Donruss Greats
132 -  A.J. Pierzynski 2003 Fleer Ultra die-cut
133 -  Joe Mauer 2005 Donruss Diamond Kings
134 -  Rod Carew 2010 Topps Turkey Red
135 -  Kent Hrbek 1992 Donruss Triple Play

Ahhahahaha! That stupid Kent Hrbek card. So stupid. Love it. I think Kirby in the infield is my favorite of the bunch, though. No vintage this time, though there was a Rod Carew sighthing. I only have a couple more filled pages left, I am going to have to work that out.


  1. I forgot that Kirby played the infield a couple of times. Had to look on Baseball Reference to see when. Cool card!

  2. Kirby has a lot of great cards, but I think that '96 UD one is my favorite.
