Cool card or Gimmick?

Cool card or Gimmick?
Pulled this card yesterday - The dual jersey spins around in the center of the card. Numbered to 75 which is great, John Wall is legit, but I;m not sure yet if I think the spinning dual jersey wheel is hokey or not. Thoughts?

I'm not really into modern, but I wouldn't say it's a gimmick as much as uneccesary. They probably could have made a much simpler card by doing a front and back, with one player and his jersey on front and other player and jersey on back. But it's definitely a unique card, congrats on the pull!

I like that both players are on the front of the card. The spinning jersey is nifty but definitely gimmicky as you would have to take the card out of whatever plastic case, toploader, penny sleeve, etc. in order to spin the jersey piece around.

Honest opinion... I think it's a little goofy. There's innovative and then there's clowning up the hobby.

I've pulled a few of those from Panini and I wish I hadn't.

In the end I can't complain, it's still a nice card but now that's in the top loader, it'll never be spun again.

I'd say it's a creative and original idea for a card until you actually pull one yourself.
