The Non-Reds Frankenset: Cards #469 - 486

Barry Larkin Collection 943: 1993 Post Canadian - #15

Barry Larkin
Year:
  1993
Brand:  Post Canadian
Card number:  15



In 1993, there were two different Post Cereal sets released, one in America and the other a French version for Canada.  This particular set is rather small (the checklist is only 18 cards total:  9 American League All-Stars and 9 National League All-Stars).  

1993 Post Canada Full Set Checklist:
  • 1 Pat Borders
  • 2 Juan Guzman
  • 3 Roger Clemens
  • 4 Joe Carter
  • 5 Roberto Alomar
  • 6 Robin Yount
  • 7 Cal Ripken, Jr.
  • 8 Kirby Puckett
  • 9 Ken Griffey, Jr.
  • 10 Darren Daulton
  • 11 Andy Van Slyke
  • 12 Bobby Bonilla
  • 13 Larry Walker
  • 14 Ryne Sandberg
  • 15 Barry Larkin
  • 16 Gary Sheffield
  • 17 Ozzie Smith
  • 18 Terry Pendleton

The set itself is pretty cool as each card is a "pop-up" of the featured player.  Basically, you gently bend the card to pop the player up a bit and then pull a tab to make the player stand up fully.  

While I do like the pop-up idea in theory, I will say that my particular copy of the 1993 Post Canadian card is still in its original cellophane wrapper and I have no plans to free it from it's crinkly plastic prison to pop out the card!

  1. I like these and the concept for "pop-up" or "stand-up" cards. It'd be cool to see Topps create an insert like this for their flagship or Opening Day product lines.

  2. This looks like it uses one of the patents I wrote about at SABR. https://sabrbaseballcards.blog/2020/01/13/mid-90s-pop-ups/

  3. Minor correction, it's bilingual - not just French! But I enjoyed this set, I had all the Jays from it at one point
