1993 Topps Black Gold #11 - Barry Larkin

These were officially the coolest cards in the history of the world back in 1993. This type of excess-foil design is no big thing now, but at the time I loved the few I had. I couldn't trade for em since no one wanted to give em up. And they were selling for too much to even consider buying. Odds of grabbing one were 1 in 72 packs. I never had the Larkin as a kid; I picked it up recently for a dime at a card show. A DIME. I thought baseball cards were a savvy investment idea, right?
