Barry Larkin Collection 125: 1987 Classic Travel Update #133

Barry Larkin
Year:  1987
Brand:  Classic Travel Update
Card number:  133

In 1987, Classic issued a bunch of different sets (all of which have the same basic design).  This particular card is from the Travel Update set.  As with all Classic sets, the front features a simple photo while the back emphasizes trivia (not necessarily related to the subject on the front of the card).  I don't know the rules of the game, but it seems like singles were fairly easy to come by (50/50 if you had to guess true or false and plenty of easy questions) while some of the better "hits" were a bit harder (though the question about Johnny Bench's number is easy for any Reds fan)!  All things considered, there are worse Larkin cards that I've seen, but not many...this one even makes the 1991 Fleer set look good!
