Delivery Time! A Quick Trade with Thorzul Will Rule!

About a week or so ago, Thorzul (from Thorzul Will Rule) contacted me via Twitter (if I recall correctly) asking me if I had a specific Barry Larkin card called "Nuisance."  I didn't know what exactly he was talking about but I was pretty sure I didn't have that card.

A few days later and this shows up in my mailbox:

Yep, that's a Nuisance alright!

A nuisance in the sense of "is this or isn't this" a Barry Larkin card?

On the one hand, the card is called Nuisance and it's not directly a Barry Larkin card.  On the other hand, the player pictured is most definitely Larkin...and the text below the photo calls out Barry by name.

After some consideration, I think I have decided that, yes, this is a Barry Larkin card in the sense that it belongs in my collection!  I hope to get a post written up about the card itself (as an entry in my ongoing Barry Larkin Series) in the future, but for now all I can say is a big "thanks" to Thorzul for helping my collection grow!

Can't wait to read the write up on this one. Cool and puzzling at the same time. Hope you will answer who made this card, what's on the other side, who else is in the series, etc
Normally Beckett would be the authority on if its a card or not, but I agree yes it belongs in a Larkin collection.
