Barry Larkin Collection 449: 1997 Upper Deck Collector's Choice - #17 - The Big Show World Headquarters Parallel Insert

Barry Larkin
Year:  1997
Brand:  Upper Deck Collector's Choice
Insert set:  The Big Show World Headquarters
Card number:  17

The Big Show World Headquarters is a 100% pointless parallel of The Big Show regular insert set.  The regular The Big Show insert cards were seeded a reasonable one-per-pack but the World Headquarters parallel set were seeded an absurd 1:35 packs.  And the difference for that tough pull?  One lousy gold stamp.

Yuck.

I might love the Collector's Choice line, but that doesn't mean that every decision of Upper Deck's was a wise one.  A parallel of an insert set most definitely doesn't fit with the budget Collector's Choice line...and frankly, the card isn't even nice enough to warrant a parallel set!  Still, I'm happy to have the card in my collection - one less card to track down!
