If you're like most collectors, you're probably tired of the plain white swatch. They've been around for so long now, that a lot of their appeal is gone. That's a big reason why patch cards are so compelling. They're often unique in their own right, no matter what the serial number says. Case in point, 2013-14 Panini Prime Hockey Prime Colors. With nearly the entire card front dedicated to a swatch, they're distinct, colorful and beautiful. Simply put, they're some of the most attractive memorabilia cards ever produced.
2013-14 Panini Prime Hockey Prime Colors cards come in several different varieties. When combined, they make for a massive checklist. Veterans have logo, patch and letters versions, each with more than 120 cards each. On top of those, there are 25 additional logo and patch cards highlighting rookies.
No matter the type of Prime Colors card, the vast majority are serial numbered to less than 50. Most are actually much lower.
With such a larger roster of players, don't expect all of the Prime Colors to be superstar players. However, because of the visual appeal each card brings, this isn't a case where it matters a whole lot. Sure, superstars like Sidney Crosby are bound to bring bigger amounts, but even in a worst-case scenario, collectors have a unique card that looks great.
If there's a drawback to the 2013-14 Panini Prime Hockey Prime Colors cards, it's that some players' patch doesn't match up with the jersey they're pictured in. For example, Cam Neely is listed as a member of the Boston Bruins. However, he has cards that are clearly from a Vancouver Canucks jersey. Given his shorter amount of time with Vancouver, it makes for a nice piece, but it would have been that much nicer if he was listed with the matching squad.
