Barry Larkin Collection 607: 1999 Metal Universe - #98

Barry Larkin
Year:  1999
Brand:  Metal Universe
Card number:  98

The Metal Universe set in 1998 was nowhere near as cool as the previous year's edition (or the even better 1997 edition).  On the other hand, the 1999 set design definitely lives up to the "metal" moniker more than the previous sets.  Unfortunately, that's not really enough to make the set overly awesome. 

As for the Larkin card itself, it's firmly in the "meh" category for me.  It's not awful but it's not overly great either.  The front is merely average while the backside is a bit below average (the sideways statistics...what's there of the statistics particularly annoying).  I won't be chasing this set, I can tell you that much (though I'm happy to at least have the Larkin from the set)!
