Barry Larkin Collection 315: 1993 Upper Deck - #R13 - Reggie Jackson's Clutch Performers Insert

Barry Larkin
Year:  1993
Brand:  Upper Deck
Insert set:  Reggie Jackson's Clutch Performers
Card number:  R13

The Reggie Jackson's Clutch Performers inserts were seeded in Series 2 retail packs and hobby jumbo packs.  The set consists of 20 different players that Reggie Jackson (supposedly) selected as having performed well under pressure.

Personally, I'm not a fan of having another player's name (or fake signature) on a Barry Larkin card.  As such, the gold Reggie Jackson fake signature on the front basically ruins the front design for me.  Unfortunately, the news is even more dire on the reverse of the card because you are greeted by a black and white photograph of Reggie Jackson sporting his Yankees hat.  Yuck!

Keep the Yankees off my Barry Larkin cards please!
