2013 Goodwin Champions Sidney Crosby Sport Royalty Jersey

I got this card because one, it's a Sidney Crosby jersey card, and two, because it was cheap, but man is it an ugly card! There's a lot of detail with the painting when it comes to Crosby's face, but what is going on with that jersey? Even though they have an NHL license, they neglect to go with the actual uniform he wears, I guess so that it doesn't stand out against the sports that don't have licensing, but beyond that, his jersey actually looks like one of those inflatable sumo suits that somebody placed a hockey sweater over.

Apparently, though, this card is a bit of a rarity. Goodwin Champions has their regular memorabilia cards, which are basically just parallels of the base cards, but with a fabric swatch. The Sport Royalty memorabilia cards, however, are much more rare, as this Crosby is inserted in just 1:717 packs. So, at least there's that.
