Barry Larkin Collection 219: 1991 Kahn's - #11

Barry Larkin
Year:  1991
Brand:  Kahn's
Card number:  11

For many, many years Kahn's has produced a Reds' team set of baseball cards which are handed out as a promotional item during the season.  While some of the different Kahn's sets are quite nice, that can't be said for the 1991 set.  The best part of this set?  The Reds' World Series trophy.

Unfortunately, Kahn's hasn't had the opportunity to use that trophy in a set design since 1991 which is pretty depressing for Reds' fans around the country (and probably for Barry Larkin as well since he was relatively young in his lone chance at the World Series)!

It should also be noted that the numbering for this set is simply the jersey numbers of each player - thus, the set is "skip numbered" in that sense.  I find that annoying but what do you do?
