I've been meaning to upload a fresh scan of this card on my website for a while now (View the 2012-13 Card Gallery Here), and this weekend I finally got around to it when scanning a few other things, so I figured why not showcase too?
The Dominion Peerless patches set will go down as a true classic in my opinion. The white & gold card designs mesh perfectly with this card, and the autograph stands out perfectly, not to mention the sweet patches that can be found in this set.
As for the jersey itself, I beleive this was the jersey used by Enroth in the 2011 NHL Premiere Series, as Panini acquired some of those jersey's from the Buffalo Sabres, and Enroth was featured in the 11-12 Panini Prime Premiere Game Patches #/3 set, so it's not a far stretch to say this patch is from the same jersey. This card features a two-colour patch (there is a bit of silver on the top left corner), but I actually prefer it that way. I love the Buffalo Sabres' navy blue colour, so to have a thick piece of the navy blue Sabres jersey crest works just fine for me. I may look to pick up another copy one day, but for now it's perfect. Honestly, it's probably one of my favourite cards in my entire collection. Love this thing.
