LINDEN CARD OF THE WEEK - 2010/11 Limited Monikers Autograph

Let's start the new year off on the right foot. Here's a pickup that is from a new product, is numbered to just 10 copies and has an autograph.

2010/11 Panini Limited
Legend Monikers Gold
Autograph /10

Well, that's a pretty good way to kick off the new year.

Panini's newest release adds 13 cards to the wantlist. Parallels and inserts adding up quickly on this one. The base set 'Legends' card has 5 parallels (2 of them autographed, hence the Monikers title). There's also a pair of insert releases - the 'Vintage Pucks' card (with a piece of game used puck, the first in Linden's illustrious card checklist) and an equally nice "Retired Numbers' card (showcasing cards of players with their numbers retired).

The one thing I'm not a fan about with this card is that it uses the exact same photo as the Certified release a couple months ago. Panini must have a shortage of Linden photos to draw from.

Out of the 13 cards, 3 are 1/1's and another 3 are numbered /10. Knocking this Linden auto /10 is a great start. And a tiny hint as to what is to gets better than this one. Stay tuned.
