Throwing it Back!

Well I didn't get to post the mail day like I was hoping to.  Having a 9 month old can do this to you.  One thing I did learn is 2017 Topps Series 1 is coming out on February 1.  Guess what, Barry Larkin is in it.  He will have 14 unique cards in this series.  They will be honoring the 87 series in a subset.  I really wish they would have saved it for Heritage.

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.

1987 Topps Tiffany RC

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.

2010 Topps Cards Your Mom Through Out

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.
