Barry Larkin Collection 469: 1997 Topps Stadium Club - #18 - Instavision Insert

Barry Larkin
Year:  1997
Brand:  Topps Stadium Club
Card number:  18
Insert set:  Instavision

The Instavision set was seeded 1:24 packs making them a de facto box hit.  And as far as box hits go, these are pretty cool!  The Instavision "screen" looks like a screen - and the action shot coupled with the illusion of fans underneath the scoreboard make for an appealing front of the card all the way around.  Luckily, the back of the card is just as nice - the large baseball behind another shot of Larkin coupled with a team logo and a nice paragraph of text.  This is how an insert should be done - interesting, unique, and rather special feeling.  Good stuff from Topps!
