Barry Larkin Collection 214: 1991 Topps Cracker Jack - #11

Barry Larkin
Year:  1991
Brand:  Topps Cracker Jack
Card number:  11

In 1991, Topps issued two different 36 card sets of Cracker Jack cards that were inserted in specially marked boxes of the snack food.  Barry Larkin was in the second series (#11 in the first series was Dave Parker).  Although the scan doesn't make it obvious, the Cracker Jack card is about the size of a postage stamp (1 1/4" by 1 3/4").  Despite its diminutive size, the card has a nice photo on front and some statistics (plus a very brief write up) on the back.  It should be noted that the photograph on the front of the card is the same image used for the regular Topps set in 1991.
