Jimmy Howard: 2013-14 Panini Select Red Prizm

Two posts in the same week, that's actually a lot for me so far this year. As much as I wish I was posting on here more frequently, its been nice spending some time on my other hobby. I still am on the lookout for cards for my collection daily, I just tend to pass on more of them nowadays unless I can get a great deal. This one is another case in which I saw a card I really liked, put up a starting bid of $0.99 and just waited. Well, I was lucky enough to win the auction and get myself a shiny new, very limited, parallel for my Howard collection.

This one comes from 2013-14 Panini Select and is actually a red Prizm parallel. According to what I've read online, these were not inserted into regular packs, but were part of the Panini Black Friday promotion. Either way, it's an amazng looking card in person. It's even serial numbered 25/35 on the back. 

I really like the look of this set, especially this red parallel. The overall look is pretty simple, which is nice for a change. What's hard to see in the scan is how shiny this thing is. Its even got a kind of chrome rainbow tint to it when you hold it in the right light.
