The Great Griffey Frankenset Database

If you're not familiar with the idea of a frankenset, it is a customized set of cards properly sequenced by card number that all tie into a connecting theme. Some frankenset themes include whole teams, mini-collections, and even just generally great cards or photos. This is the first frankenset I'm aware of that is made up of just one player: Ken Griffey, Jr., the man of a million cards. I took the liberty of including things like inserts, parallels, cameos, and oddballs for the sake of variety and because it's just more fun that way. Enjoy!

Here are all the Frankenset selections so far with links to each page:

  1. So I've got a Griffey 1998 Ultra Platinum Medallion 84/100...can't even find any for sale when googling to compare it to. This blog popped up though. Any idea what it'd be worth?
