I was hoping I was doing him a bit of a favor by sending him a small handful of my Larkin doubles in his package, and then he blew me away by sending me THIRTY ONE. I even did a quick spot check of what I had scanned came out need am amazing 23 of those! I'll scan them separately soon and add them to my Larkin album, which is fast approaching 100 cards, and will breeze past that mark after I'm done with these. I may not be supercollecting Barry like I do other guys in my collection--he has way too many cards and his prices are justified by his HOF career--but I love getting anything new I can of one of the greatest baseball players produced by a school known more for its football and hockey.
So here's all the Larkins Chris sent my way:
Better yet, Barry wasn't the only Wolverine included in this box--Chris mentioned he had a ton of 2012 A&G doubles, so I was able to get him to throw in J.J. Putz's base card from the set. It's Putz IHAS card #62 and is much appreciated as I work through his more recent issues.
Chris, once again I thank you for a trade where I couldn't be happier. Let's do it again sometime! Readers should mosey on over to his Reds-centric blog that mixes plenty of other collecting topics as well, but earns two thumbs up from this Larkin collector!
