Barry Larkin Collection 232: 1991 Classic Series II - #T33

Barry Larkin
Year:  1991
Brand:  Classic Series II
Card number:  T33

In 1991, Classic released a couple of different sets (you can find another Classic Larkin card from 1991 here).  This particular card is probably one of Classic's better designs (at least for a team like the Reds) since the red border doesn't clash with Cincinnati's uniforms.  On the other hand, Classic still used the '91 "Dorito chip" logo in the upper corner which looks terribly dated!

There's not much else to say, this isn't the most exciting card.  I do wonder, however, if anyone ever tried to get players to sign Classic cards in the little rectangle on the back marked "autograph"...that could be an amusing set!
