2018 Panini Flawless Collegiate (2017 Panini Flawless Collegiate Team Slogans Gold Signatures #TSS-HW)


      This is, at the same time, one of the nicest looking Herschel Walker autographed cards in the Hoard, along with being one of the most confusing.

       Panini Flawless is one of the hardest sets to checklist properly, as there is a multitude of subsets within it.  To make matters worse, although the copyright date on the back of the card reads 2017, the TCDB lists no 2017 cards for Walker in the Panini line.  Instead, this card is listed under the 2018 Panini Flawless Collegiate set, with an added line that it is from the 2017 set.

    The Team Slogan part of it comes in where Herschel has added, "Go Dawgs", in addition to his signature.  The autograph is crisp and clear and it's a great photo of Walker in his Georgia red uniform.

     The white border of the card is washed out among the white background on the scan, but in hand, this card is a 10 out of 10.   That also happens to be the serial # of this card, #10 of a total of 10.

    Though I have discussed this card before, when I made a post about some of the autographed cards that are in the Hoard, but it was just today that I got the card uploaded to the TCDB. Many thanks for SunDevilCollection for working so hard on these Panini set checklists and creating the space for this great autographed card.

2003 Donruss Classics Atlantic City National Promos #119


One of only five cards produced, this Herschel Walker promo card was only available at the 2003 National Sports Collectors convention, held in Atlantic City, N.J., that year.

The card looks the same as the base card from the 2003 Donruss set, except that there is an embossed stamp on the front of the card, which reads, "24th Annual National Convention, Atlantic City, N.J."

The stamp is difficult to see on the scan, but it is just to the right of Herschel's knee on the card front.  On the back of the card is the 5/5 serial #.

I'm very pleased to add this tough to find promo card to the Herschel Hoard.
