1989 Sports Illustrated For Kids Full 9 Card Sheet #10-18



            This is a full sheet of cards which were included in 1989 Sports Illustrated For Kids magazines. The pages were meant to be pulled from the magazines and clipped apart for collecting, so the full sheets are more difficult to locate.  The single Walker card from this set is already in the Hoard.

            I wanted it as a Herschel Walker collector, however, the fact that Michael Jordan is in the set makes it pricey on the secondary market.

Cleaning Out The Hoard Picture Cache

       I have a bunch of examples of cards I have acquired for the Herschel Hoard.  Most are 2022 Panini variations. Forgive me if these exact examples have been posted previously, though I don't think they have.  

          2022 Panini Classics Premium Base Front #119


       back of same card:      

     2022 Panini Classics Blank Back

          Here is the front:     

     Here is the back, it's obvious why it's called Blank Back:


          2022 Panini Classics Premium Timeless Tributes #119:

           Card front:      

          Card back:          

     As can be seen, this card is serial numbered to 35, with this example being #22.

          2022 Panini Classics Premium Gold #119

          Card front:          

  Card is serial numbered to 99, here is the reverse side:

     2022 Panini Mosiac Gold Wave #236

          Card front:          

           Card back:          

    This is a low serial numbered card.  Just 17, of which this is #7.

      2022 Panini Transitions Blue #T-12

          Card front:             


        Card back:          

  This is a very low serial numbered card.  It has only five cards in the set, this is #4.

2006 Leaf Limited Gold Spotlight #122




          This is another one of those cards which was a blank space in the TCDB for a long time.  It is a 2006 Leaf Limited Gold Spotlight card #122, which features Herschel Walker, when he played for the Minnesota Vikings.  It is a low serial numbered edition, with only ten examples, this being #5.

          The Silver and Bronze parallel have been in the Hoard for some time, but I was lacking the Gold, until now.  There is a Platinum version, but that is a 1 of 1.

2022 Panini Prizm Sensational Signatures #SS-HW



          I haven't added an autographed Herschel card to the Hoard in quite some time, so I decided to pick up this, 2022 Panini Prizm Sensational Signatures card with Walker's John Hancock. These cards are serial numbered to 50, with this example being #2.  The serial # can be found on the card back, at the bottom of his picture.

           Just how sensational a signature is, remains subjective, and this appears to be a somewhat rushed example, but I always liked how Herschel Walker signed his name, especially the "H" and the "W".
