    Not much to contribute here but I did pick up one of these a while back. I know only 3 have been graded by PSA, and the best grade is a PSA 7, so there can't be too many out there...haven;t been able to find out much info...

    This is a print flaw where the black ink was blocked in that section (all the black areas on 1986 Topps cards have sky blue underneath). Similar to the 1990 Frank Thomas, where there are connecting subjects also affected by the print flaw such as Tom Seaver.

    They are not easy to find but they show up with some regularity. Prices have been all over the place. Several years ago, it was a $25-30 card. One seller a few years back had 10 copies or so available at once.

    Chris Brown, Dave Winfield, Joe Niekro are a few other occasionally found with missing portions of black ink on front. Several cards from the Nolan Ryan sheet can be found without yellow ink on front too.

    I'm only collect Barry Larkin and his hardest to find 1980's card that I'm aware of is the 1988 Score Samples card. I've only seen one for sale since I got back into collecting a couple years ago the person was trying to get $200 on ebay. I got super lucky and got mine in a lot of 1,200 Larkin cards for $26. The person I bought it from probably had no idea what they had.
    On the lookout for Barry Larkin cards I don't have, specifically 1998 Topps Tek.
    Currently at 1,467 unique Barry Larkin cards.

    Doesn't this card have a few variations? One that looks normal with 000 stats, one missing the name on front? Another without some portion of the back, stats or bio or something? Another with a blank white area where the photo should be? I know several others from the sample set have these variations, ie: Dawson, Boggs, McGwire, Mattingly.

    Nice find! Pretty sure an 88 score Larkin sample sold on comc fairly recently. Dallascardboys had one up, I put in an offer and it got bought minutes later...

    I highly recommend checking COMC regularly for 1988 Score promos subjects listed among the base cards. It definitely happens.

    I've only seen pictures of the one that was posted on ebay and mine. They were both identical. Green border, 000s for 1987 and total stats on the back.
