A Ryan Getzlaf Private Signings Auto From An Unknown Product.

A real beaut to officially add to the collection today as I present a Private Signings signature of Ryan Getzlaf from some Panini product. I say some Panini product because the seller listed this as out of '11-'12 Dominion but the Private Signings autos can be found in numerous Panini products.
