A Fortnight of Penguins Hits Part 9 of 14: Pinnacle Penguins Patch of Crosby

Recently, I made a significant purchase for my Pittsburgh Penguins Collection. I found a seller who was unloading a bunch of Penguins cards, and when I combined an itchy trigger finger along with a lack of Ebay self-control, I found myself the new owner of 16 phenomenal cards of Pittsburgh Penguins Players. I didn't want to just unload them all on one post, so I decided to stretch it out to 14, mostly just because I wanted to use the word "fortnight" in the title.

Anyway, here's today's "Fortnight" card:

2011-12 Pinnacle Sidney Crosby Threads Patch 21/25


This card is similar to one I already have, but with a slight difference. I already own the base version of this insert, which contains a solid white jersey swatch. This version not only has a scarce serial number, but features a patch piece in place of the jersey swatch. Pinnacle made its return to the hockey market for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, but was cut for the 2012-13 lockout-limiting year. I'm not sure if it will return to hockey this year, but Panini has been producing baseball and basketball cards under the Pinnacle banner, so we shall see.
