Barry Larkin Collection 140: 2000 Fleer Impact #8

Barry Larkin
Year:  2000
Brand:  Fleer Impact
Card number:  8

The 2000 Fleer Impact set is a low-end set that was marketed to the younger crowd.  It's a set without many inserts (one insert set is simply team logos in the form of temporary tattoos).  However, despite the emphasis on drawing in younger collectors, the set is actually fairly well designed!  The front features a nice photo, the logo, and an easy to read player name (and position).  The frame is colored with team specific colors in mind which is also a nice touch.

The back of the card is equally well done.  You have some basic statistics, a second (different) photo, and the player's vital information.  The colors of the table of statistics are also team themed, once again making the card design stronger than the sum of its parts.
