Dustin Brown Jersey Card

One of the biggest news items on the Los Angeles Kings front this summer was when they took away the "C" from serving captain Dustin Brown, weeks before handing it to Anze Kopitar. He didn't take to it lightly, either (understandably).

While it's true his play had declined after signing a $47M contract that now seems unmovable, he was the player who first raised the Stanley Cup for both of the team's championships, and that still has to account for something, in my opinion...

I hope he finds his game again, but two straight 11-goal seasons and four straight seasons with less than 30 points has many Kings fans worried (or angry).

Here he was in more promising days, on card #J-BR from Upper Deck's 2005-06 Series 1 set (and UD Game Jersey sub-set), showing him in L.A.'s black and purple pre-lockout uniform:
It features a matching purple game-worn jersey swatch. The dust on the left of the scan is from the penny sleeve; the card itself is fine.
