Barry Larkin Collection 179: 1995 Topps Embossed - #129

Barry Larkin
Year:  1995
Brand:  Topps Embossed
Card number:  129

The Topps Embossed (aka t-MB) set features color photos on both the front and back of the card as well as one year plus total career statistics.  The set gets its name because the two photos on the card are both embossed.  A simple concept to be sure, but it's effective in making the card "feel" (literally in this case) different than a standard baseball card.  Of course, it sold for a different price too back in the day ($3 per pack of six cards).  The set itself is only 140 cards in size so it wasn't automatic that every player at the time would receive an embossed card.
