1994 Stadium Club Super Bowl XXIX Embossed #33

   


I am very pleased to add this tough to find card to the Herschel Hoard.  This is a 1994 Stadium Club Super Bowl Embossed card, #33 of Herschel Walker.   This card was initially available at the January 1995 Super Bowl card show in Miami.

The Super Bowl XXIX logo is embossed on the card front, just above the RB.  Unlike the Super Teams cards from this set, the logos are not in gold foil, and you almost have to have the card in hand in order to see the embossing.

Here is the blurb on the card from Beckett: "Collectors who attended the 1995 N.F.L. Experience Super Bowl Card Show in Miami could trade five Topps products wrappers for a 5-card cellophane pack of this issue.  The cards are essentially a parallel to the 1994 Stadium Club release embossed with the XXIX Super Bowl logo in the lower left corner of the card front.  Just the first two series of the set were issued with this embossed logo.  Note that the embossed logo does not contain gold foil like the Super Teams Super Bowl redemption cards."

These cards don't pop up very often, so it's a great find for me.
