Barry Larkin Collection 196: 1995 Fleer Ultra - Award Winner - #14

Barry Larkin
Year:  1995
Brand:  Fleer Ultra
Insert set:  Award Winner
Card number:  14 of 25

The Award Winner insert set was seeded 1:4 packs of Series 1 Fleer Ultra.  The front and back of the card both use a horizontal layout which is ok when you have one card...but if you were to collect the full set and store it in standard 9-pocket pages the set wouldn't be visually appealing at all.  Speaking of eye sores, the gold foil name at the bottom of the front of the card is virtually impossible to read...and the background image of Larkin isn't flattering at all - too bad Fleer felt compelled to use the same ugly image for the background of the reverse of the card as well.  All things told, this card is actually worse than Larkin's regular '95 Ultra base card (and that's saying something since the regular card is fairly ugly as well)!
