Brand: Tombstone Pizza
Card number: 13 of 30
This is now the second Tombstone Pizza card in my Larkin Collection, and unfortunately, I like the first one I featured a lot better. The front of the card is solid enough for a non-licensed set, though the airbrushing of the Reds "C" logo on the hat leaves a bit to be desired.
The back of the card is where I find fault in the design. If you know going into a card design that your set won't be able to show team logos, why in the world would you decide it would be a good idea to have a close up profile shot of a ball player with their hat on? It looks cheap (because it is) and generally unbecoming of a baseball card. The rest of the back design is actually fairly nice - but that gigantic logo-less Reds hat on top of Larkin's noggin is simply too much to ignore. Even so, it is always fun to acquire some of the lesser known, odd-ball type Larkin cards!
