Insert set: Team Leaders
Card number: 17
The 1994 Fleer set is most definitely underrated, though I don't think you can tell that by this particular insert card. Seriously though, if you haven't checked out 1994 Fleer base set you should - it's pretty great in its understated simplicity. While the base set is great, you can safely avoid the Team Leaders insert set (unless you are a player collector like me). Speaking of player collectors, this is the third and final different Barry Larkin card from the 1994 Fleer set (the other being this All-Star insert card).
As I said, the Team Leaders insert set isn't the best set in the world. In Barry's case, that's a kind of creepy, distant look in his eyes for the main photo and a much-too-small action shot over top of that. Top it off with too much gold foil and you've got a fairly ugly front of a card. The back of the card isn't so bad except again the image choice isn't great - Larkin appears to be fouling out in this picture. And the final straw? My card is pretty badly off-center.
