Barry Larkin Collection 307: 1991 Topps Stadium Club Special Stadium Set - #102

Barry Larkin
Year:  1991
Brand:  Topps Stadium Club Special Stadium Set
Card number:  102

The 1991 Special Stadium Set is often referred to as the Stadium Club Dome set.  Even more confusing, the set was actually released in March of 1992 but it contains a copyright date of 1991 on the bottom of the card.

As for the set itself, it was actually a 200-card hobby only set which was sold in a package designed to look like Toronto's SkyDome (home of the 1991 MLB All-Star Game).  The card design is entirely reminiscent of the 1991 Stadium Club set with the All-Star game logo replacing the rookie card image.  I do appreciate the fact that Topps used a different photo as compared to the original Stadium Club set but otherwise this set isn't overly exciting.  In fact, it's basically a glorified 200 card subset of the original Stadium Club set...but released months later!
