This is Leaf's 2019 look at multi-player game used memorabilia cards. Herschel is featured in this set in a couple different ways.
The card above features eight different former Dallas Cowboys stars, with a game used jersey swatch representing each player. Herschel Walker shares the card with Emmitt Smith, Drew Pearson, Bob Lilly, Tony Dorsett, Bob Hayes, Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin.
The Purple parallel shown above is serial numbered to 12. This card is #4. The serial number can be seen in the black border of the right side of the card front.
There are also the following: Base-#'d to 25; Platinum-#'d to 5; Red -#'d to 3; Silver-#'d to 2 and Gold-#'d to 1.
In addition, there is also an Ultimate Sports Ultimate Patch 4 version. In that set, Walker is featured with three other Heisman Trophy winners. However, I doubt I will be seeking out any of those cards.
It's because of my own personal bias, but one of the other former Heisman winners is O.J. Simpson. I just can't , in good conscience, collect cards of a person that I believe, murdered two people.
That's not to say that there aren't some people in my collection with off field issues. Michael Irvin, for example, had some shady behavior, to say the least, but the Simpson thing, especially as a Bills fan, will always stick in my craw.
That said, I do own two Simpson cards. I'm trying to complete a 1973 Topps football set, and he is featured twice in that set, and I do have those cards. However, I doubt I would ever spend money on any more Simpson cards.
A quick shout out to the two other Heisman winners who are featured with Herschel. Earl Campbell and Eddie George. I admire and respect both those guys.
