Barry Larkin Collection 190: 1995 Donruss - #241

Barry Larkin
Year:  1995
Brand:  Donruss
Card number:  241

The 1995 Donruss set is busy.  That's the only way to describe it.  The front has two photos, both in color.  The large photo is fine but it gets cut off by the smaller photo that inset in a home plate graphic.  Above the smaller photo is the player's position plus a semicircle's worth of stars.  Add in a foil banner at the bottom for the team and player name and you've got one busy card front!

On the flip side, the back of the card is relatively tame.  A single photo plus a large (offset) team logo and then five years' worth of player statistics.  For as much as I don't like the front, I like the back quite a bit.  In fact, if Donruss had only included full statistics rather than five years' worth, I think this could be a perfect card back!

After i shipped out your package I noticed I have the "press proof" variant of this card. I'll set it aside and get it to you the next trade package! Adam (addictionastherapyBLOG)
