Barry Larkin Collection 46: 2003 Topps 205 - #31

Barry Larkin
Year:  2003
Brand:  Topps 205
Card number:  31

I've now written posts about 45 other Barry Larkin cards, but this particular card manages to be completely different than all of those (which must give Upper Deck hope that they can somehow create cards given their new restrictions from the lawsuit).  The faux signature, the close up mug shot, the dirt-esque background...there's nothing in my Larkin Collection that is quite like this card front.  The back of the card, however, isn't nearly as unique.  In fact, it's (at best) boring and definitely bland.  Monochromatic card backs should go the way of the dodo!
