Barry Larkin Collection 620: 2000 Upper Deck Black Diamond - #23

Barry Larkin
Year:  2000
Brand:  Upper Deck Black Diamond
Card number:  23

The 2000 Upper Deck Black Diamond set has a high and mighty name but I'm not sure that the execution matches the haughtiness of the brand.  It's not the card design is terrible exactly, but it basically looks like almost all of the other sets that Upper Deck was producing around the turn of the century. 

Looking at Larkin's card itself, the front has a fairly dull image on the front with an even more boring image on the back.  As usual with Upper Deck, you do not get full career stats but otherwise the card back is adequate. Honestly, there isn't much to say about this set other than it's rather pointless and certainly nondescript.  Unfortunately for Barry Larkin collectors like myself, Larkin also has a Reciprocal Cut parallel and a Final Cut parallel (which is numbered out of 100) both of which I still need to track down.
