I was able to follow the team rule this time, but I may have fudged a bit on the bat rack rule with the Fred McGriff card. I have no doubt that he is standing "bat rack adjacent," and I thought that there was a bat in the background leaning against the wall... looking closer I think that's a broom or mop handle.
No matter! I hope to get the Stan Musial card in its original form at some point, but the reprint actually fits in the 9 pocket page, so I almost prefer to have it instead of the genuine article. 

Tell me about your mini-collections - would you start your own Franken-set?


  1. Wow. I'm impressed that you found so many bat rack cards that actually corresponded to your Frankenset. I've thought about building one. If I do, it'll probably be one representing the Oakland A's. I've also thought about making a multi-sport one and include the A's, Padres, Seahawks, Packers, Sharks, and SJ Earthquakes.

  2. It would be interesting to know just how many pages you'll be able to fill up with this set?

    1. The short answer is as many as I can - right now I am fairly confident that there is enough material out there to get me through at least 3 more pages...

  3. Wow, you sure have me updating my wantlist! Love these cards!
