2010-11 Artifacts Sidney Crosby/Alex Ovechkin Tundra Tandems Patch 5/40

Now, here's a fantastic card. I was lucky enough to add this penomenal-looking card to my collection: a 2010-11 Artifacts Tundra Tandems Dual patch card of Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin, numbered 5/40.

If you can't tell already, I really love this card. For one, you get arguably the best two players in the world, who will be forever linked throughout their careers, and still seem to be in competition for that title. You have Ovechkin with three Hart Trophies, three Art Ross Trophies, and one Rocket Richard trophy, but hasn't come anywhere near the Stanley Cup, and you have Crosby with just one Hart and one Art Ross, but two Olympic Gold Medals and one Stanley Cup. Apart from just how great of players each of them are, this card is really cool because of the great patch pieces included. You get multiple colors on each, both I think, coming from the jersey numbers. That's exactly the way a patch should be: multiple colors and seems. Let's knock it off with this single-colored patch stuff that's been way too prevalent in cards, especially from Upper Deck.
