Barry Larkin Collection 535: 1989 Fleer Glossy - #164

Barry Larkin
Year:  1989
Set:  Fleer Glossy
Card number:  164

The Fleer Glossy set was only available in tins and came packaged with an additional 66 stickers.  While it's nice to own the rarer Larkin card from the '89 Fleer set, I actually prefer the "original" version more because it doesn't have the overly blue stamp on the back.  I find reading the material in the Did You Know box sort of difficult because of the stamp.  Otherwise, the extra sheen (not easily seen in the scan) does make the card seem a bit fancier...but let's be honest, how fancy can 1989 Fleer really get?!
