This is the Black Printing Plate from the 2015 Panini National Treasures Multi Sport set. Card #108 of Herschel Walker. These plates are one of one's, and this is the second such printing plate, along with the magenta, that I've been able to collect from this set.

I was able to nab this parallel card from the 2006 Press Pass Legends Legendary Legacy Autographs set. This is the Platinum card, which is serial numbered to 25. This card is #17. The base card, the blue ink and red ink autographs are already in the Hoard. There is also a 1 of 1, along with printing plates available.

This is the Diamond parallel of the 2019 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Collegiate Legacy #18, featuring Fran Tarkenton and Herschel Walker. This card is #6 of 15. The serial number can be seen on the front, just above the Georgia logo.

Here is one of Herschel's parallels in the 2019 Collegiate Draft Picks set. The Season Ticket base card was posted earlier. The Bowl Ticket cards are serial numbered to 99. It's really hard to see the numbering on these cards, because it's against a dark background. The serial numbers are just to the right of where it says Panini Contenders on the card front. This particular card is #36 out of 99.

In this subset from the 2019 Panini Contenders Draft Picks Collegiate series, two standout players from the same college are featured. In the case of card #18 above, the players are Fran Tarkenton and Herschel Walker, both from the University of Georgia.

I've been stuck on Herschel cards from 2018-19 for the last several posts, so it was nice to have a parallel card come up from a few years earlier, that was not in the Hoard.
This is the Century Gold #108 card from the 2015 Panini National Treasures Collegiate set. This card has a serial number run of 10, with this example being # 9.
Already in the Hoard, are several other Herschel Walker cards from this set, including, the base card #'d to 99; Century Silver #'d to 25; Century Black #'d to 5; and Century Blue, which is a 1 of 1. I also have one of the four printing plates, the Magenta, which is also a 1 of 1.

This White Sparkle parallel is a milestone, as it completes Herschel's run in the 2019 Panini Prizm Collegiate Draft Picks set. The Hoard is now in possession of the base card and 14 parallels.
The White Sparkle is serial numbered to 15, and this is the 15th and final card.

These cards come slabbed from the manufacturer, with a tamper proof seal at the top.

Above is likely the toughest Herschel Walker card to acquire in this series. The black parallel version, a one of one edition, has made its way into the Herschel Hoard.
I am still seeking the White Sparkle card, to complete Walker in this particular set.

As I mentioned in the last post, I will be trickling in images of any Prizm Draft Pick parallels of Herschel I obtain. Above is the "Hyper" example. It is serial numbered to 75, with this example being #46.

I'm pleased to welcome the very first 2019 card to the Herschel Hoard. This is the base card from the 2019 Panini Prizm Draft Picks set. Herschel is one of the many college legends mixed in among current draftees.
As is usual for Panini, there are a slew of parallels in the set. The following are #'d to 99: Silver, Blue, Orange, Pink Pulsar, Purple, Red and Red, White & Blue. Hyper is #'d to 75, Mojo to #49, Camo to #25, White Sparkle to #15, Gold to #10, Green to #5 and Black, which is a 1/1.
As I get more parallels, I will post them.

Panini came up with yet another gimmick in this set. The collegiate stars listed not only sign their autograph, but add their school's team slogan.
I like the look of this card, but took a chance and bought it from a photo in which the card was sleeved. I didn't notice the corner issues in top right. Oh well, live and learn. Not exactly "Flawless", but still a nice card.

Above is the Emerald parallel of the 2008 Press Pass Legends card #62, featuring Herschel Walker. I was able to nab two more versions of this card which weren't already in the Hoard. The Emerald version is serial numbered to 25.
I also picked up the Red version, shown below, which is serial numbered to just 5.
