Barry Larkin Collection 538: 1990 Baseball Card Magazine - #8

Barry Larkin
Year:  1990
Brand:  Baseball Card Magazine
Card number:  BC8

The Baseball Card Magazine issued a 72 card set in 1990 that was clearly based on the 1969 Topps set.  As it turned out, the Reds had two players in the first ten cards of the set (the other being Eric Davis with card #5).  In addition, the Reds have two other cards in the set (both dual player rookie cards, one with John Wetteland of the Dodgers and Joe Oliver of the Reds and the other featuring the two Reds Scott Scudder and Rosario Rodriguez).  Based on the team checklist, I think one could track down the Larkin and the Davis cards and forgo the other two...eesh.

Returning our attention to the card of the post, it should be noted that you must have had to cut these cards out (or else someone took some scissors to my only copy of the card for an unknown reason).  I know I could never cut things out super nicely, so I don't mind the odd little divot on the side of the card...  It gives it personality and character, right?
