Barry Larkin Collection 389: 1996 Score - #516 - Checklist

Barry Larkin
Year:  1996
Brand:  Score
Card number:  516
Subset:  Checklist

As a player collector, checklist cards featuring your favorite player can be super annoying!  They often don't show up in player databases...and people generally don't pay much attention to checklist cards (meaning you aren't likely to acquire them via trades or even in bulk lots on eBay).  All that said, I'm actually happy to acquire this particular checklist because it is actually quite nice!

Starting with the obvious, how can you not like a card that celebrates Larkin earning his MVP award from the previous season?  The photograph is top notch (Larkin appears to be in need of tying his one shoe)!  The back of the card isn't nearly as interesting - but it's a checklist so I guess it's ok.

All told, it's not the flashiest or most special card in my collection, but sometimes simplicity can be golden as well!
