Barry Larkin Collection 530: 2000 Pacific Vanguard - #62

Barry Larkin
Year:  2000
Brand:  Pacific Vanguard
Card number:  62

The 2000 Pacific Vanguard set is small in size (only 100 cards) but heavy in terms of parallels.  For National League players (such as Larkin), there are the following parallels (in addition to the base card you see above):

  • Premier Date (hobby only, #/135)
  • Holographic Purple (#/10)
  • Proofs (#/1)
  • Green (retail only, #/199)
  • Holographic Gold (hobby only, #/99)

I don't own any of the parallels (and I'll probably never own the Holographic Purple or the Proof cards since they are out of 10 and 1 respectively).  That's kind of a shame though because I actually like the simplicity of the Vanguard set design.  The front features a simple action shot while the back has a close-up photograph and a small blurb about the player.  Sure, the sparse statistics leaves something to be desired but otherwise this is a nice, simple looking card design.
