Barry Larkin Collection 174: 1988 Leaf - #226

Barry Larkin
Year:  1988
Brand:  Leaf
Card number:  226

As a kid, I always enjoyed getting a Leaf card (for the French at the bottom of the card) or a Pacific card (for the Spanish).  Years later, I would end up taking Spanish in high school and college and marry a woman who took French in both high school and college.  You might say it was fate.  You might also say it was the case of two American kids taking one of the two most commonly available foreign languages in small town America.  You might be a sourpuss.

Turning our attention to the Larkin card in question, it's actually fairly boring.  The Leaf card is basically a direct copy of the 1988 Donruss card - except with French added.
