2022 Panini Classics Blue Back #119



          Here is another variation in the 2022 Panini Classics set.  This is the Blue Back version of card #119 in the set, featuring Herschel Walker. Obviously, the card gets its name from the blue background on the card back.  These are serial numbered to 75.  The number can be seen on the lower left corner of the card front.  This example is #14 in the run.

2022 Panini Transitions/Gladiators/Legendary Contenders Base Cards

      Here are three different base cards from the 2022 Panini Football line, featuring Herschel Walker.

     First, the Transitions card:



      These cards symbolize a player's transition from one team to another, in Walker's case, from Dallas to Minnesota.  Several parallels exist in this set.

          Next is the Gladiators set:



          Again, there are several variations within this set.

            Finally, we have the Legendary Contenders set:



         Like the previous two sets, there are a lot of cards to collect, including serial numbers from 99 to one of ones.

2018 Panini National Treasures Collegiate #13 Black Printing Plate



       I added another Printing Plate to the Hoard.  This is a 2018 Panini National Treasures #13 Black.  This was a great pickup, because I already have the Cyan and Magenta of this run in my collection.  If I could come across the Yellow version someday, it would give me a complete run of all four plates.

     Who knows if that will ever happen, but in any case, three out of four ain't bad, right?
