More Panini The National VIP Danica Patrick - Hollywood Casino 400

I continue to be stymied in my attempts to gather Danica Patrick cards from 2016 Panini Prizm, but I've had a little luck in getting my hands on cards from Panini's sets from The National Sport Collectors Convention. Today's two cards come from the VIP set, which was printed on Prizm stock and packed out in gold-colored packaging.

This first one is a purple-colored Prizm of some kind. I wasn't able to find an official checklist for this set, so I don't know the official name for this parallel. It's shiny, though, and serially numbered # 12 / 50. There's not much else to say about it. It's a different color and shinier than the base card from the set.

My scanner doesn't like slabbed cards, and I was too lazy to take a picture with my phone, but this blurry card here is a basic Prizm parallel of the same card. It's not serially-numbered. I am not sure why someone had this card graded. It's got a 9.5 Gem Mint score overall, with all of the subgrades (Centering, Corners, Edges, Surface) also earning 9.5 scores. I got it for less than the cost of getting it graded.

Today's NASCAR race was the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway. Danica has historically had kind of a tough go at this track, with an average start of 26.40 and an average finish of 24.00 over 8 races heading into today. She started this one in 19th and finished a spot higher in 18th, bumping her career numbers at the track up a bit to an average start of 25.60 and an average finish of 23.33. I'd say another Top 20 finish is pretty good, although she's still got a ways to go before being a consistent Top 15 driver.
