A six year quest for one of the most elusive Herschel Walker cards out there has ended today.
The Herschel Hoard is very pleased to welcome in:
1994 Upper Deck Electric Gold #262
You see that little gold foil electric logo at the bottom of the card front? That beautiful little logo is something I was beginning to think I would never see.
But lo and behold, a few days ago, as I was perusing EBay for Herschel cards, as I routinely do, there it was. Someone was selling a '94 Walker Upper Deck Electric Gold card. I rubbed my eyes in disbelief.
All I had ever come across in the last six years were the base card example, and the Electric Silver parallel, both of which I already had.
After quickly reviewing the seller's offering, I quickly hit Buy it Now, hoping that no one had acted faster.
When the message, "Congratulations on your purchase" popped up, a wave of collecting satisfaction washed over me.
Silly to get that wound up over a piece of cardboard? Maybe, But thousands of you know just how I feel.
So another rarity replaces this one, and the beautiful journey begins anew.
