2011-12 Upper Deck Sidney Crosby Winter Classic Jumbo

While shopping at my LCS over the weekend, I came across a jumbo Sidney Crosby card from 2011-12 Upper Deck. This card was inserted exclusively into retail tins of the product as a box topper of sorts, and features Crosby's appearance in the 2011 NHL Winter Classic.

The card is oversized (3"x5", maybe) and has a great picture of Crosby entering Heinz Field, and if you look close, you can see Evgeni Malkin following right behind him, which is pretty cool.

The back of the card has a short write-up about the Pens being involved in two Winter Classics. It starts off by noting Crosby's shootout win over Buffalo in 2008. While there is a small notation of the 2011 game, it declines to acknowledge that game as the one that began Crosby's concussion issues.
