Barry Larkin Collection 53: 1995 Topps Bazooka #40

Barry Larkin
Year:  1995
Brand:  Topps Bazooka
Card number:  40

The Bazooka brand in the mid-90s was basically a kid-centric brand with some type of game involved.  The front of the card features a rather blase picture of Barry Larkin with his position highlighted clearly (which was probably important for the game).  The back of the card has some sort of bulls-eye thing with plenty of possible baseball outcomes.  There are also statistics from the previous season and Larkin's career statistics. 

This is, quite honestly, one of my least favorite Larkin cards simply because the "game" takes up way too much space on the card.  However, every Larkin card is treasured to some degree by me so this one now resides safely in my Larkin binder.
