Barry Larkin Collection 228: 1987 Fleer - #204

Barry Larkin
Year:  1987
Brand:  Fleer
Card number:  204

There aren't all that many rookie cards for Barry Larkin.  In fact, I believe I now own all but the Kahn's card in terms of Barry's rookie cards.  Unfortunately, I believe this particular Fleer card is my only copy (and it's not in the best of shape condition wise).

As for the card itself, the front image looks like Larkin got his picture taken in front of his high school field while the back is basically wide open, empty space since Larkin hardly had any statistics to speak of in 1987.  I think this particular Fleer design is probably one of Fleer's better designs (it's certainly better than 1988 or 1989 anyhow)!
