Barry Larkin Collection 187 - 2002 Upper Deck Vintage - #254

Barry Larkin
Year:  2002
Brand:  Upper Deck Vintage
Card number:  254

The Upper Deck Vintage line is one of my favorites sets from the early 00s.  I don't care that Upper Deck ripped off old Topps designs - I just happen to like the old time cardboard (and no foil)!  This particular card is one of my favorite Larkins, at least on the front of the card.  The back of the card could have used a better image - one where Larkin's face wasn't obscured by his hat and sunglasses perhaps?  Even so, the cards a beauty - one of the few instances where the horizontal layout really works...even if it looks like garbage in a 9 pocket page (which is how I store my Larkin collection).
