Brand: Topps Allen & Ginter
Insert set: Framed relic
Card number: AGR-BL
To celebrate my 800th different Barry Larkin card in my collection, what better option than an Allen & Ginter framed relic card?!
I'm a huge fan of the framed relics in general so of course I'm going to love a Larkin framed relic! Admittedly, the back of the card leaves a bit to be desired but at least it does state that the relic bit was "game-used"...something that's becoming rarer and rarer among relic cards for those that read such things carefully!
I do wonder what people think of the frame for the 2017 relic set. For me, I kind of dig the palm tree vibe but I can imagine that not everyone will.
Overall, I will admit that this is one of my favorite Larkin relics that I own. It's certainly not the rarest or the fanciest, but sometimes simple is good! Happy 800 Larkin cards...here's to the next 800 now!
