Brand: Topps Tiffany
Card number: 648
The 1987 Topps set is certainly an iconic set (which means Larkin's rookie card is also iconic to an extent). Unfortunately, the 1987 Topps set was also woefully overproduced. So much so, in fact, that you can still find unopened packs of 1987 Topps in repack boxes sold today! The Topps Tiffany set from 1987, on the other hand, is comparatively rare. In fact, according to baseballcardpedia, there were "only" 30,000 Topps Tiffany sets created in 1987.
As for the card itself, I ended up grabbing it off of eBay (hence the reason it is graded). I will probably free the card from the confines of the plastic cage soon - after all, I greatly prefer all my cards in 9-pocket binder pages so I can flip the pages and enjoy them whenever I wish! I have to give Joe F. credit for convincing me to simply "go for it" and acquire this card for my own collection. After all, how can I call myself a Larkin collector if I didn't even own one of his iconic rookie cards?!
