Ben Bishop: 3 Autographed Cards (Part 2)

(continued from the previous post)

In that vein, while I'm no fan of the current jersey (I very much prefer all the older versions, from the 70s to the 80s to the 90s - yes, even the red-striped Gretzky-era jerseys), the Rbk Blues jerseys are still much better-looking than their AHL counterparts:

The card on the left is from Upper Deck's 2008-09 Power Play box set (card #383), which serves as his rookie card; the card on the right is from Panini's 2011-12 Score set (card #410), in which it is clear his shoulders cover the net even when he's on his knees. His 6'7'' frame coupled with cat-like reflexes made him the best goalie ''not in the NHL'' this season, and likely the Sens' goalie of the future - provided he re-signs there after next season.
