2012-13 Prime Brooks Orpik/Ryan Miller Quad Prime Jersey /50

We don't always get great relic cards of a player from our favorite team, along with one of our favorite players from a different team, but I have found one such card. This one is a quad prime jersey card of Ryan Miller and Brooks Orpik from 2012-13 Panini Prime, numbered 4/50.

Of course, I'm a HUGE Penguins fan, so picking up a jersey card of Orpik was a no-brainer, and Miller became one of my favorite goaltenders after his show-stealing performance at the 2010 Winter Olympics. The four swatches spell out "WC08," which is in reference to the 2008 Winter Classic game between the two teams at Buffalo's Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Penguins won 2-1 in a shootout, with Sidney Crosby scoring the shootout-winning goal.
