Barry Larkin Collection 265: 1993 Studio - #43

Barry Larkin
Year:  1993
Brand:  Studio
Card number:  43

The 1993 Studio followed in the steps of the previous year's version...which isn't necessarily a good thing.  Actually, the front of the card is quite nice - even if I don't care for the faux foil signature.  I do like the team logo in the background of the card front (the logo appears to be from the front of a ball cap).  The problem with the set (much like the 1992 Studio set) is that no one wants creepy photos on their baseball cards.  Seriously, what Studio designer said "boy, I think we should blow up the player's face so large that you can see every single pore and slap half of that face on the back of each baseball card."  I like the information about the player on the back, but the half-face is too scary and it constantly distracts me from reading about Larkin's love of boating, financial advising, and facing the Padres.
