Barry Larkin Collection 336: 1994 Upper Deck Collector's Choice - #349 - Team Checklist subset

Barry Larkin
Year:  1994
Brand:  Upper Deck Collector's Choice
Subset:  Team checklist
Card number:  349

The 1994 Upper Deck Collector's Choice features a few different Barry Larkin cards.  Today's card is the Reds' team checklist (with Larkin front and center as he should be) but there is also a Barry Larkin base card and a Larkin silver signature base parallel that I own from the set.  I think there exists a silver signature parallel for the checklist card as well, but I don't own one as of the time I am writing this post.

Returning to today's card, the front image shows what appears to be a terrible throw from the catcher on a caught stealing attempt.  I think it's safe to say that Lewis was safe, though it appears Larkin managed to make some sort of lunging catch of the throw (it looks like the baseball is in Larkin's glove).  The back of the card features the checklist for all the Reds in the 1994 Collector's Choice set.

A quick look at that roster and you can see why Cincinnati wasn't very good in 1994.  Yikes!
