Barry Larkin Collection 200: 2012 Topps - #GWSP-BL Gold World Series Pin Manufactured Relic

Barry Larkin
Year:  2012
Brand:  Topps
Insert set:  Gold World Series Pins (Manufactured Relics)
Card number:  GWSP-BL

The Gold World Series Pins insert set consisted of twenty different players and included a manufactured pin that commemorates a World Series that the player played in.  The card itself is one of the thickest cards that I own - and while it's certainly contrived, it's still kind of cool (and I hate admitting that about a manufactured relic)!  The front of the card is a solid design (especially when you consider how much space the pin takes up).  The back isn't overly exciting, but it does at least have the player's name plus what the pin is celebrating.  All things told, it's a fun, unique addition to my Barry Larkin Collection though I have no desire for Topps to do any more pins any time soon.
