Featured Card: A few years ago, I showed off three of the cards I had added to my Bob Dernier personal collection from the 2014 Panini Immaculate Collection Autograph sets. The gold version of this card is numbered to just five copies, and I recently added the 5/5 card to my collection to go with the 4/5 version I picked up in 2015. I'm still looking for the platinum version of this card, limited to just one copy, and if you come across this card in your travels I'd love to know about it.
