Barry Larkin Collection 153: 2001 Fleer Focus - #105

Barry Larkin
Year:  2001
Brand:  Fleer Focus
Card number:  105

The follow-up set to 2000s Fleer Focus line shares a few of the same design elements (namely the white borders, logo, and team logo in the background of the reverse side of the card).  Unfortunately, for as much as I like the 2000 Fleer Focus card, I don't seem to care much for the 2001 edition.  It's hard to explain, but I don't like a lot of the little touches such as Larkin's foot extending into the border where the gold foil team name resides.  The Reds team logo is also way too small on the front of the card.  I do like the back of the card however - in fact, if you took 2000 Fleer Focus' front and 2001 Fleer Focus' back, you'd have a nice looking baseball card!
