Jordan Eberle Jersey Card

The New York Islanders made a superb deal when they signed Jordan Eberle to a five-year extension that brings him to the end of his prime years (and perhaps a couple of years beyond that point); of note, it carries a lower cap hit ($5.5M instead of $6M) than his previous deal, which got him traded by the Edmonton Oilers - a move Oil fans regret to this day.

He's had his ups and downs throughout his career, dropping from a 30-goal player to 25 then 20 in Edmonton, and reviving his career with 25 goals two winters ago on Long Island, to falling to just 19 (and only 37 points) this past season, although he made up for it with his finest playoff performance to date, with 9 points in 8 postseason games as the Isles made it to the second round.

I just thought I'd mention it while I fell upon a double of this card I'd already featured on here:
It's card #AF-JE from Upper Deck's 2013-14 SP Game-Used Edition set and Authentic Fabrics sub-set, showing him wearing the Oilers' iconic blue-and-orange uniform and sporting the alternate captain's "A", with a nice, big, dark blue swatch encrusted in it.
