Barry Larkin Collection 197: 1995 Fleer Ultra - #145 - Gold Medallion Parallel

Barry Larkin
Year:  1995
Brand:  Fleer Ultra
Parallel set:  Gold Medallion
Card number:  145

There are all types of parallels in existence now.  There are mini parallels, there are color parallels, there are photo parallels, and then there's the worst kind of parallel:  the "Slap a foil logo on it" parallel.  Unfortunately, back in 1995 Fleer Ultra did exactly that.  This card looks exactly like the Barry Larkin base card except this one has the foil Gold Medallion logo at the top of the card.  If I weren't an obsessive Barry Larkin collector, this card would quickly be forgotten...In fact, one 1995 Fleer Ultra card is more than enough - this is an ugly design!
