LINDEN CARD OF THE WEEK - 2010/11 Limited Spotlight Platinum 1/1

Today, I added another 1/1 card to my Trevor Linden collection. It's the third time this season that I've been able to land one. I'm still in awe over the amount of low numbered cards he has in the various product releases so far.

The price tag on my Linden cards in the 10/11 campaign has by far been the most inflated of any other year. That said, this pickup came to me for a bargain - maybe even a steal.

2010/11 Panini Limited
Legend Platinum Spotlight #127 1/1

This one finishes the Limited 'Legend' parallels. It's the first time that has ever happened. I am the only one on the face of this earth who has every parallel of this card. I think that's kind of cool.

I saw this card pop up on ebay one night when I just happened to do a search at the right time. The card had been up for all of a couple minutes. The 'Buy It Now' price was half of what I expected the card to be.

I couldn't hit the buy button fast enough. I was thrilled to land this card.

While I'm getting sick of this pose from Linden (this photo's been used on two different product releases by Panini), I don't think I'll ever get sick of seeing the '1/1' on the back.

Here's his 'twin' 1/1. They now sit side by side in my Linden case.

And while this card would rank at the top of the list most years, I think this the 'Trevor Linden Card Of The Year' for 2011 might be the one I present to you next.

Stay will only get better.


  1. I'm not exactly thrilled with them mentioning me on the back writeup. I may have to contact my lawyer....

  2.'re not proud of the fact that you're Vancouver's all-time leader in games played.

    Pretty special!
