Barry Larkin Collection 296: 1998 Circa Thunder - #11

Barry Larkin
Year:  1998
Brand:  Circa Thunder
Card number:  11

On the bright side, the card number is 11 which is perfect for Larkin (matches his uniform number).  On the dark side, the rest of the card is pretty much awful.  The front of the card has a hideous purple background along with some wolverine claw marks (?) at the top of the card.  The back of the card features a second shot of Larkin where he appears to be wearing a poncho and way too tight pajama bottoms.  Heck, even the quote at the top of the back of the card is idiotic:  Why would Jim Bowden say that Larkin has the potential to be a gold glove center fielder?!  Stupid.

One final nail in the coffin?  The 1998 Circa Thunder set has two parallel sets - which means I'm still missing two other Barry Larkin cards from this set.  Ugh.
