A Larkin Retrospective - Part 4: Partners in Crime

There are so many Barry Larkin cards out there, the card world decided to share the love a little bit and let some other kids play too. A wide array of non-Barryness found its way onto cards with Larkin, but make no mistake. These are all Barry Larkin cards.

Larkin with other Hall of Famers? Check. Kirby Puckett and Tony Gwynn.

Larkin with surefire future Hall of Famers? Check. Derek Jeter, Ken Griffey Jr., and Chipper Jones.

Larkin with 500 HR hitters? Check. Jim Thome and Gary Sheffield.

Larkin with a random teammate? Check. David Espinosa and Sean Casey.

Larkin with a ton of random teammates? Check. Jose Rijo/Rob Dibble/Roberto Kelly/Reggie Sanders and Steve Paris/Ed Taubensee/Sean Casey/Pokey Reese/Aaron Boone/Ken Griffey Jr./Dmitri Young/Michael Tucker

Larkin with other teams' shortstops? Check. Travis Fryman, Jay Bell/Jeff Blauser, and Asdrubal Cabrera.

Half of Larkin with half of Derek Jeter? Check.

Larkin looking longingly into Jeff Bagwell's eyes? Check.

This thing? Check.

Go Reds.

  1. I like the Larkin/Chipper card, because it amuses me to think of the two of them actually in the same photo, fighting with bats.

    I'll wager 400 Quatloos on the newcomer.

    ...I also forgot how much the TV number on the right side of the road jerseys annoyed me.
