LINDEN CARD OF THE WEEK - Decades Jersey Auto Gold 1/1

Huge mailday today. What a great way to start the long weekend.

The Linden collection grows by one more (and a giant one at that).

2010/11 ITG Decades
Rookie Game Used Jersey and Autograph
#RJA-TL Gold 1/1

This card is awesome (if I do say so myself). The moment I saw it I knew that I wanted it.

With the current Decades release by In The Game my Trevor Linden wantlist grew quite a bit. And slowly I've been knocking them off one by one.

This card was one I wasn't sure if I would ever see (let alone obtain).

But after my debacle a few weeks ago over a Panini Contenders 1/1, I think I compensated with a more aggressive approach towards this one when I saw it.

The moment it appeared on ebay, I put a bid in. I was soon e-mailed by the seller and by midday we had a deal.

What was really nice was that the seller did a great job of packaging and delivering (as I received it by the end of the week).

Thrilled to add it to the collection and it sits as one of the premer cards in my Linden collection.

My only beef is that it's not a hard-signed auto (ITG did a really nice job of hiding the sticker edge though).


  1. What a gem to add to your collection!

  2. Congrats!! With all the on-card autos from this release, it is hard to believe they slipped some stickers in.

  3. :0

    That is a work of Linden card I've seen on your blog, what a beaut!

  4. Nice pickup! Too bad it's not hard signed, but like you said you can barely see the edges of the sticker. Cool card either way...
