Barry Larkin Collection 51: 1994 Topps #250

Barry Larkin
Year:  1994
Brand:  Topps
Card number:  250

The 1994 Topps set doesn't seem to have a lot of fans (with good reason).  The photography isn't overly exciting, the design is uninspired, and the player names (and teams) are difficult to read!  Unfortunately, this particular Larkin card illustrates all of the above complaints...

The front of the card features Larkin, complete with goofy mid-90s sunglasses going after what I can only surmise to be a routine popup on a sunny day.  The back of the card features Larkin flashing a sign language "F" for some reason.  Finally, the back of the card features (as is Topps' base set custom) Larkin's full career statistics. 

Overall, this particular Barry Larkin card is no where near my top 10 - or even my top 50 if you consider a bunch of cards that I haven't yet scanned and written about as part of my ongoing Barry Larkin Collection series.  That said, it's still a Larkin card which makes it better than just about any other card in the 1994 Topps set!
