Barry Larkin Collection 434: 1996 Zenith - #10 - Mozaics Insert

Barry Larkin /  Hal Morris / Reggie Sanders
Year:  1996
Brand:  Zenith
Insert set:  Mozaics
Card number:  10

The 1996 Zenith set has two different Barry Larkin cards in it (a regular base card which I don't yet own as of the time of this post) and this Mozaics insert card (in which Larkin shares the spotlight with two other Reds - Hal Morris and Reggie Sanders).  However, given the large, center placement of Larkin's image on the front of the card, it's clear that this is a Barry card first, and a Hal/Reggie card second.

As for the card itself, it's certainly shiny!  The Mozaics spelling is annoying, but otherwise I can't find a lot of fault for this mid-90s crazy gem.  I had to look up the insertion rates, and from what I found these were actually fairly common cards to find (1:10 packs).  Nowadays, a card with this crazy look would probably be a bit rarer...
