2018 Panini National Treasures Collegiate Yellow Printing Plate #13



          I was able to nab another, one of one, printing plate of Herschel, for the Hoard.  This is the Yellow plate, from the 2018 National Treasures Collegiate set #13.  There are two different poses of Walker in this run. #13 cards feature him in a more straight ahead running pose, while the #33 cards picture him in more of a side view.

          Obtaining this card give me a full, four card run of Printing Plates in the #13 run. Black, Magenta, Cyan and now, Yellow.

         The funny thing about this purchase, is that the seller was advertising it as a Black Printing Plate. I already had the other three in my collection, so I figured that he just didn't know what he had. This is the first time I've ever been able to get all four plates which are avaliable.

          As far as the #33 plates, I have the Black and Yellow, but lack the Cyan and Magenta.

2022 Panini Classics Stars/Premium Edition Timeless Tributes Stars #119

      Shown are two of Herschel Walker's, 2022 "Stars" line issued by Panini Classics Football. I'll show the front of each card together, then the backs.  Here is the regular card:


       Note the stars around the border, which gives the card its name.  Next, here is the front of the Premium Edition Timeless Tributes Stars card;


      Again, we see the border of stars, but the middle of the image is darker and has the "Timeless Tributes" running across it.

     Next, the reverse side of the regular Stars card:


     And finally, the reverse of the Premium Edition Timeless Tributes Stars card:


     You'll notice that the Premium cards are serial numbered to 6. This example is #2, which can be seen right under the Cowboys star logo, on the card back.

2022 Panini Classics Transitions Red #T-12



          I finally nabbed the Red Parallel of Herschel in the Panini Transitions line.  Some time ago, I had posted that I had every card in the run, except for the Red and the Black, which is a 1 of 1.

          Here is the Red, which is serial numbered to 50, this particular card is #32, shown on the card back.

       At one time, I actually had a chance to purchase the Black card, as it was on EBay, but it was graded and encased, which meant I would have to crack the case in order to scan it to the TCDB. I have done this with Walker cards before, as I collect only for the pleasure of it and not for resale. I own some graded cards, but am not a huge fan of the practice.  In any case, I didn't pull the trigger on it.
