The nice thing about my plate is I have two examples in my collection that were made with the plate:
11/12 Panini Prime Brett Connolly Rookie Holosilver /50
11/12 Panini Prime Brett Connolly Hologold /25
Here is the printing plate that was used to help those two cards above!
They are actually very thin and they have some weight to them (more than a normal card of course) and they feel really cold (metal obviously). No real texture to the surface and I was surprised the printing wasn't reversed.
Getting my first plate was pretty cool, and I really like the idea. However, I don't see myself trying to get every single plate from Brett Connolly or any other player for that matter (unless circumstances are too good to pass up of course). I do have one more plate I added to my collection around the same time as picking this one up but I will save that for another day.
