So in honor of the 87 series here is what I have in the 87 collection.
1987 Topps RC
My first Larkin RC and one of the first I had as a kid. At the time I had no idea who he was and it was just in the stacks of cards I had in my collection that my brother and I played with. Now I have a countless number of this card as it is one of my favorite Larkin cards of all time.
Being a novice collector I had no idea what a Tiffany card was until a few years ago. I figured I would look in my stack of Larkin rookies and sure enough there was one. I just thought the white card stock were reprints from the 90's when I was a kid.

The front of this card looks exactly like the original rookie card. It really through me off when I got one in a break. There is also a version that has the original back to that I am still looking for.
In conclusion, I am really looking forward to the 2017 collecting year. I am hoping that Topps and Panini take a small hiatus of having 100 plus Larkin cards this year, but who am I to tell the people what they want.
