Yannick Weber Jersey Card

I wanted to put the Yannick Weber card I featured last month in a binder, but there was no sense in doing it for just one card. So here's another one, a photo shoot-worn jersey card, from Upper Deck's 2009-10 SPX set, card #152 of the Rookie Jersey sub-set (numbered #256/799, though I find it hard to believe one jersey could be split into 800 pieces each measuring a bit over square inch, so there were likely numerous worn in that photo-op), featuring a nice blue swatch, likely from the Montréal Canadiens' red (home) three-coloured jersey:

I want to reiterate my faith that the two-time Olympian (at barely 25 years of age) for Team Switzerland will become a regular NHLer if only for his powerplay prowess (great first pass, great shot, good foot speed), but also full-time as a #4 or 5 defender.

All he needs is ice time and a coach who will let him play his own style. He's won championships in Juniors and was an All-Star in the AHL. This season or the next will be his breakthrough.
