2006 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia Tools of the Trade Material Double Blue #TOT-60




     Despite this card having a relatively high serial # of 50, it has been missing from my collection for a long time.  This is a 2006 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia  Tools of the Trade Material Double Blue card of Herschel Walker.

     Another thing I wanted to talk about is how dark the card image comes out when scanned.  That is what your seeing above.  The cards have a mirror like surface on the front and as a result, the scans almost always come out dark.

     Here is a photo I took of the card front.  Although it's a bad image, you can get a better idea of what the card actually looks like:


     Still partially dark, but you can begin to see more of the card.  Here's another shot I took of the card while on my scanner.  It's a bit blurry, but here it is:


      Finally, here is a picture of the back of the card:


        As you can see, this card is #1 out of 50.  Unfortunately, the TCDB rule is that card images can only be scanned, not photographed, so if you see this card on that site, it will look like the top image in this post.  I'm happy to add it to the Hoard in any case.

Great addition to the collection. Always nice to find something older for the collection. You know the cards are out there, it is just a matter of finding them.

Thanks, Angus. Sometimes it seems like a needle in a haystack, but it is a great feeling when a long searched for card becomes available.
