Barry Larkin Collection 178: 1989 Topps Baseball Talk - #90

Barry Larkin
Year:   1989
Brand:  Topps Talk
Card number:  90

The 1989 Topps Talk cards are oversized cards which feature a record on the back of the card.  According to baseballcardpedia, the record on the back features the given player talking about baseball.  Unfortunately, in order to hear the audio you need one the special players that were sold separately (image courtesy of baseballcardpedia):

As far as my Barry Larkin Collection is concerned, this is a fun oddball!  The design on the front of the card mimics the 1989 regular Topps card except the photo is completely different (Larkin's original '89 Topps card shows him batting).  As a Barry Larkin collector, I like the different photos - and the 1989 design is an under-appreciated design in my book!  All things told, it's safe to say this is the only "record card" in my Larkin collection!
