2013-14 Prizm Sidney Crosby Immortalized

Now, I'm not always a fan of Prizm, or Chrome, or whatever a particular card company calls their brand of it, but this is a case of it being done right.  With 2013-14 Prizm, Panini produced a die-cut insert set called "Immortalized," which honors a player winning the Stanley Cup, and I was able to get my hands on Sidney Crosby's Immortalized card.

As you can see, the card is cut along the outline of the Stanley Cup, which the focus on the trophy, as much as the player. It also has the player image as the only non-silver element of the card, which makes it stand out right next to the Cup.

The back of the card features the same photo used on the front, as well as the short write-up on the player. This one in particular, focuses not so much on Crosby winning the Cup, but how he developed from a highly-touted prospect into a highly-decorated leader.

  1. That is a pretty sweet die cut. Going to have to ad the Toews to my wishlist.
