Barry Larkin Collection 135: 1994 Upper Deck Collector's Choice #171 Silver Signature Parallel

Barry Larkin
Year:  1994
Brand:  Upper Deck Collector's Choice
Parallel:  Silver Signature
Card number:  171

The '94 UD Collector's Choice set featured a full set parallel of silver signature cards.  The entire parallel set is exactly the same as the regular set except for the addition of the foil faux signature.  As for the card itself, the photography is quite nice (as was normal for that era of Upper Deck).  Heck, you can even see Larkin's wristband which featured an image of himself!
You've got to be awesome to wear wristbands of yourself.  Larkin isn't the only Red to have ever sported such wristbands, as recent as last year Brandon Phillips had a similar thing going on  Other Reds to have worn  wristbands like that include Eric Davis and Kal Daniels.  This card isn't the only card that shows Larkin's wristbands either, here's a different card from my collection that I highlighted previously where you can also make out his mug on his wrists!

You forgot the most important part of the wristband: Say No To Drugs
Larkin proudly wore this for many years as other superstars got busted.
