2010-11 Luxury Suite Evgeni Malkin Stick/Jersey Card

Ever since discovering the product, I have been a huge fan of 2010-11 Panini Luxury Suite. The cards look great, it's a high-hit/low-cost product, and they really make an effort to ensure that the swatches of memorabilia they include looks fantastic. I was able to pick up an AMAZING Evgeni Malkin stick/jersey card on Ebay, which exemplifies how fantastic some of these cards can be.

The card is numbered 18/100 and features the dreaded plain white swatch. There might not be anything special about the jersey piece, but they did include an amazing-looking piece of Malkin's stick. There's a faux wood finish and white paint separated by a black line. There's also a chip on the finish of this piece in the upper right corner. Memorabilia pieces are the only place you actually WANT to find damage. It just seems more "used" that way.

  1. I like that the stick piece shows the outside. While I like baseball bat relics, this one has more personality with the color instead of the beige wood grain.
