Barry Larkin Collection 494: 1999 Kahn's - #11

Barry Larkin
Year:  1999
Brand:  Kahn's
Card number:  11

Kahn's has produced team sets of baseball cards for the Reds for a number of years (usually given out during a stadium promotional day).  Unfortunately, as someone who lives 10+ hours away from Cincinnati, I have never actually made it to a baseball card giveaway game.  Luckily for me then, I have a number of great traders who often hook me up with assorted Barry Larkin cards...which is almost assuredly how I ended up with this particular card!

As for the card itself, this one isn't bad (for a promotional item).  My biggest complaint about the card is the terrible font choice - otherwise it's pretty solid (especially the back with complete statistics including minor leagues)!  The other interesting thing of note about this card is that it doesn't actually mention the Kahn's brand name anywhere.  I'd say that was a big oversight by the company...hard to promote yourself if you don't put your name out there in the very least!

Isn't that the Kahn's name watermarked on the back?

Ah, you are correct! I don't know how I missed the watermark... Well, never mind the last line of my post (which I'll leave in just to show how dumb I can be sometimes).
