Barry Larkin Collection 326: 1994 Sportflics - #109

Barry Larkin
Year:  1994
Brand:  Sportflics
Card number:  109

When I first laid my eyes on some Sportflics cards (probably from the mid 80s), I thought they were the coolest thing since sliced bread.  Unfortunately, it doesn't take long for someone to realize that sliced bread actually isn't all that cool...and neither is Sportflics.

This particular card scans terribly (as do all Sportflics cards)...but that's the least of the problems.  You don't get any team logos, the card number is sort of difficult to read, and there's way too much purple for any self respecting card.  In the end, I consider this an oddball Larkin card...and even with that in mind it still pales in comparison to the Church's Chicken card or even the Post Cereal card from the same year.

I still think 1986 Sportflics is cool...not as cool as 1986 Topps but still cool none the less.
