1995 Collector's Edge Black Label Die Cuts #147 (Another Top Ten Most Wanted Card Crossed Off My List)



          This is the second card in my Top Ten Most Wanted cards that I've nabbed in a week. As discussed in my previous post, I was able to pick up a 1996 Pacific Silver card of Herschel, which had been on my radar for a long time. Shortly thereafter, the above card popped up on Ebay.

           It is a 1995 Collector's Edge Black Label Die Cuts #147 of Walker. I put together all the other versions of card #147, in this set, featuring Herschel Walker (there are about 10 variations). I had the regular Black Label edition and the regular die cut version, but until now, was never able to locate the Black Label Die Cuts.

           It gets frustrating sometimes to locate a particular example of a card you are looking for, only for it to be of another player. When the card you're after finally does show up, it is a great feeling. The chase really is the fun of it.

           I will be hard pressed to duplicate this run of good fortune, but the fact that it did happen, inspires me to keep adding to the Herschel Hoard.
