Barry Larkin Collection 123: 2012 Topps Golden Moments - #18

Barry Larkin
Year:  2012
Brand:  Topps
Insert set:  Golden Moments
Card number:  GM-18

The 2012 Topps flagship Series I set featured three different Barry Larkin cards.  There was this Golden Moments card, a Golden Moments relic card, and a Timeless Talents insert card.  Unlike the Timeless Talents card, this the Golden Moments card was clearly designed with relics in mind.  As such, there is a lot of dead space in the card.  Furthermore, the white space at the bottom of the card is quite distracting (and seemingly begging for an autograph).  While I do appreciate Larkin getting new cards in 2012, I appreciate good card design even more...and this is not good card design!
