Barry Larkin Collection 1,012: 1995 Stadium Club - #17 - Super Skills - Member's Only

Barry Larkin
Year:  1995
Brand:  Stadium Club
Insert set:  Super Skills
Parallel set:  Member's Only
Card number:  17

In 1995, Stadium Club was released in three parts (Series 1, Series 2, and High-Number Series).  The Super Skills insert set was split in half with 9 cards released in Series 1 and the remaining 11 cards released in Series 2.  Larkin's card in the set was only found in Series 2 packs (regular Super Skills were seeded 1:24 packs so the cards are fairly tough pulls)!   That all said, this is the Member's Only parallel which, from what I can tell from my limited research, were parallels that you could only get by ordering sets directly from Topps.  

While I don't know the exact details of how this card could have originally been found, I do know that there are too many gold stamps on it!  That said, for a player collector each of those gold stamps means there's another version of the card to track down with (or without) the gold stamp so I'm certainly happy to have this one tucked away now in my Larkin Collection binders!


  1. A few years ago I found the 1996 and 1997 Stadium Club Member's Only set at the flea market. Both came inside special binders and had the complete set including all of the inserts except the autographs in 1997. As you mentioned... they all had the special stamp on each card. If I had to guess, the 1995 set was distributed the same way and every card in the binder came stamped.
