Barry Larkin Collection 229: 1992 McDonald's - #15

Barry Larkin
Year:  1992
Brand:  McDonalds (Donruss)
Card number:  15 of 26

In 1992, McDonald's (in conjunction with Donruss) released a 32 card set that was only available in Toronto area McDonald's restaurants.  The set consisted of 26 "Team MVPs" - one per team - plus an additional six Toronto Blue Jays (Alomar, Carter, Gruber, Morris, Henke, and White).  In addition, there was a specially inserted redemption card that was good for one of 1000 Roberto Alomar autographed cards (pushing the total set number to 33 cards if you count the autograph).

Although the card design is exactly the same as the 1992 Donruss base set (minus the golden arches of course), Donruss used a different image for the front of the card.  For a player collector, that's much appreciated - my binder doesn't look like I simply have multiple copies of the exact same card this way!  Other than that, there isn't a lot to say about the card besides the fact that it is probably one of the rarer oddball cards in my collection (based on the fact that you could only find these cards in the greater Toronto area).
