Brand: Fleer Ultra
Card number: 180
The 1998 Fleer Ultra design is quite nice - it's a set that I liked a lot as a kid (and I still like it now). This particular Larkin card is also nice - and probably one of the quirkiest Larkin cards in my entire collection! I have no idea what Barry is doing in the photograph...but he is clearly having fun doing whatever it is.
The back of the card is also nice - though the image is a much more common "swinging" picture. I like the full statistics, but I also like the short career highlights near the top of the card.
It's safe to say that if both a budget and storage space weren't issues, I'd chase after the entire 1998 Fleer Ultra set - it is that nice! Unfortunately, I'm still working on both 1998 Fleer Sports Illustrated and 1998 Upper Deck Retro so I don't think I'll add a third 1998 set to my want list!
