Barry Larkin Collection 485: 1998 Fleer Ultra - #180 - Gold Medallion Parallel

Barry Larkin
Year:  1998
Brand:  Fleer Ultra
Card number:  180
Parallel set:  Gold Medallion

The Gold Medallion parallels were seeded one per pack back in 1998 Fleer Ultra.  The parallel is (obviously) quite similar to Larkin's regular base card - except to Fleer's credit they made the parallel easy to differentiate (both by the card number, tacking on a "g", and with the small text on the back saying "Gold Medallion Edition").  In addition, the front of the card has a gold, speckled effect you really can't miss the parallel no matter you are sorting your cards (via card fronts or card backs).  That's how all parallels should be!
