Barry Larkin Collection 55: 1992 Post Cereal #23

Barry Larkin
Year:  1992
Brand:  Post cereal
Card number:  23 of 30

There are a number of things that make me think fondly of my childhood.  Legos, dinosaurs, and Post Cereal baseball cards are three such things (which might explain why I'm so excited about the dinosaur insert set in 2010's Allen & Ginter set too).  Of course, this Larkin card isn't a dino nor lego, but it is a Post Cereal card which makes it pretty cool.  The front of the card features Barry Larkin, a large MLB Players Association logo, and a photo of Larkin without any Reds logos at all.  However, do check out Larkin's wristband...that's right, he's rocking a wrist band with his own photo on it. 

The back of the card features a small photo of Larkin (sans logos of course) and full career batting statistics.  There is also a fascimile signature and the cheerful looking Post logo.  The entire card is clean, and the red of the Post brand goes nicely with the Cincinnati Reds...I doubt a Blue Jay would look nearly as nice in this set because of all the red!
