2004 Donruss Classics Timeless Tributes Green # 118 33/50



This is a 2004 Donruss Classics Timeless  Tributes Green parallel card featuring Herschel Walker.  The Hoard has all the other Walker cards from this set, save for the Platinum, which is a one of one.

As can be seen, this card is serial numbered to 50 and despite the higher serial number, it took me until now to find it.

2014 TriStar Signa Cuts Draft Choice Herschel Walker/Danny White One of One


      The autographed memorabilia company, TriStar, got into the draft choice card biz in 2014, with these signed cards.  Like Panini, not only were that years current NFL draft picks included, but legends of the past also had examples.

     Such is the case with this one of one autographed card of former Dallas Cowboy quarterback and Herschel Walker, in a Philadelphia Eagles uniform.

     These items are fairly rare, as there was only 75 cases produced, with  (2) 12 count mini boxes per set.  The cards were issued in runs of  35, 10, 5 and the 1 of 1's.

The Hoard Will Continue, but With Changes.

        I was going to end this blog, I really was.  I decided to continue for the following reasons:  1. When I began to collect,  I wanted to select a player who was famous, but not ultra famous.  Herschel Walker filled the bill.  Had I selected say, Tom Brady, it would have been next to impossible, either on a practical basis, or a financial basis.

        2. I wanted a player who played in the 80's and 90's, but who was popular enough to demand some cards long after his career was over.  Again, Walker fills the bill.

        3.  Though I vehemently disagree with his political beliefs; that should not prevent me from having the enjoyment I get from finding a long searched for card for my collection.

        4.  I am going to keep going, but the Hoard will feature cards only, no other memorabilia featuring Walker from this point on.
