I picked up a pretty rare card from 2011-12 Pinnacle of Sidney Crosby. The card comes from their Pinnacle Black insert set, which is inserted at a rate of one per case. I had been searching for this card for quite some time, so to finally get my hands on it at a pretty affordable price was pretty cool.
Like the base Pinnacle set, the card doesn't feature any kind of foil, or chrome, or anything like that, but it doesn't really need it. It's a horizontal card that has what looks like kind of a marble finish in the background. Everything about the card is a little bit more subdued, which makes the photograph on the front stand out even more.
The back of the card features the same photograph, which is the only thing I don't like about the card, along with a short write-up about Crosby's 2010-11 season. The front and back of the card are tied in together perfectly, which is good, plus I love the font used on the "Black" logo.
