Jay Bouwmeester 2012-13 Dominion Peerless Patches

I posted a Jason Zucker Peerless Patches card earlier today, but there were three in total that I purchased from the same seller. Number two is a Jay Bouwmeester, numbered 37/40

Bouwmeester was acquired by the St. Louis Blues at the 2013 trade deadline in a deal that sent goaltender Reto Berra and a first round draft pick to the Calgary Flames. He has been regarded as a top NHL defenseman ever since his draft year of 2002, where he was selected third overall by the Florida Panthers, behind Rick Nash (1st, Columbus Blue Jackets) and Kari Lehtonen (2nd, Atlanta Thrashers). What I really like about this card is how quickly they were able to capture a photo of Bouwmeester in his new uniform. Even though the patch is from a Calgary Flames sweater, I can overlook that, due to the lack of time available to acquire a Blues jersey.
