Barry Larkin Collection 595: 1996 Flair - #234 - Gold Foil version

Barry Larkin
Year:  1996
Brand:  Flair
Card number:  234
Parallel version:  Gold foil

The 1996 Flair set has two versions (silver and gold) each of which were printed equally.  This particular Larkin card is a gold foil, even if it isn't super easy to tell from the scan (the scan makes the foil look sort of silvery but I promise it's gold).  In fact, I don't (yet) own the silver foil version of this base card!

Other than that, there isn't a lot to say about the card.  The front is overly textured (and scans like garbage) but at least the card back is nice enough (even if that statistics are a little tough to read).  It's not my favorite set in the world, but for a mid-90s set it is surprisingly tame (in fact, the only two Barry Larkin cards in the set are the two different versions of the base card).
