Card number: 4
I'm on record multiple times stating that I don't generally care for the Bowman brand of baseball cards. I've never been into speculating on rookies - and couple that with a design that is generally forgettable (at best) and you have all the ingredients for a set I'll avoid at all costs. That said, I'm a sucker for each and every new Larkin card - even the Bowman cards!
For my money, the 2000 Bowman set is a perfect example of how forgettable Bowman can be. I probably scanned this card a year or so ago...and when I loaded the scan to write today's post I thought to myself "have I seen this card before?"
So much gray...coupled with a boring photo that might as well be used by a company that can show team logos... Just. Ugh.
Even worse, there are parallels in this set. Parallels that I don't yet own including a Retro/Future parallel (Larkin is a veteran in the set so he gets the retro treatment) and a gold parallel (the most boring of all Topps parallels, though that one is numbered out of only 99 which means it'll be hard to track down).
