This Week in Baseball Cards: January 17

Congratulations to Barry Larkin on being elected to the Hall of Fame. I wonder what is a bigger thrill for him – this or winning the 1990 World Series.


The card above is one of the best Barry Larkin items on eBay, according to Kevin Kaduk at Yahoo! Sports, who also notes that you can get a 1982 Moeller High School photo of Barry for $15.


Also in card news, ABC will soon be airing a reality show at a sports memorabilia shop. Hopefully the show will be more realistic than the episode of “Storage Wars” where Dave Hester, the character who wildly inflates every price, declared that a small pile of decent but hardly spectacular late-1970s baseball cards was worth over $1000.


And remember, gang, you can check out Bo's daily insights over at his site...Baseball Cards Come to Life.
