Marian Hossa Jersey Card

Marian Hossa is on a bit of a tear these days, with 4 goals in 5 games as the Chicago Blackhawks have put their early-season woes behind them, riding a five-game winning streak.

Hossa seemingly woke up from a year-long slumber after scoring his 500th career goal two weeks ago.

The future Hall Of Famer is one of the best two-way players of his generation; although he has been in the shadow of Jonathan Toews, Pavel Datsyuk and Patrice Bergeron, he and Tomas Plekanec round out the top-5 in my opinion.

Here he is wearing the Atlanta Thrashers' blue uniform, on card #J-MH from Upper Deck's 2007-08 Series 1 set and UD Game Jersey sub-set:
It features a red/burgundy game-worn jersey swatch from the Thrashers' old Florida Panthers-like uniform (the oft-maligned alternate uniform with the numbers in front hadn't yet been designed at that point):
The Team Slovakia regular suited up for World Cup finalists Team Europe last September.
