Barry Larkin Collection 36: 1993 Upper Deck #473

Jose Rijo, Rob Dibble, Roberto Kelly, Reggie Sanders, Barry Larkin
Brand: Upper Deck
Card number: 473
Subset: Red October (Team Stars Subset)

Here's what made the 1993 Upper Deck so awesome: Themed team stars cards (plus the player sketch checklist). While Red October isn't exactly the most original "title" for the Reds (not to mention October hasn't been relevant to the Reds for almost 20 years)'s still a pretty cool card. Rijo, Dibble, and Larkin were all big parts of the Reds World Championship in 1990, one of the last cardboard reminders of the Reds last championship!
