Steve Shutt Swatch Card

One of the best left wingers of all time, Steve Shutt was inducted in the Hockey Hall Of Fame in 1993 - ironically, the last time his Montréal Canadiens won the Stanley Cup. I wrote about his playing career back in 2010, when I received these two autographed cards by mail and would like to add that he is often credited as being the one who introduced Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee in high school, who went on to form the band Rush, inducted in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame just a few weeks ago.

This time, I'm featuring this swatch card:
It's card #FAR-SS from Upper Deck's 2009-10 Artifacts set (the Frozen Artifacts insert sub-set), received in a trade from fellow collector Brad, along with two other ''special cards'' and a few common stickers, in exchange for, mainly, a Robert Mayer autographed card. I threw in a few Crosbys, a Jordan Staal, a few Pacific double-rookies, and a CHL 4-rookie card featuring Todd Bertuzzi that used to go for upwards of $50. The (nice, blue, game-used) swatch looks like it's got a crease, but it's from the penny sleeve, I just didn't take it off to scan.
