LINDEN CARD OF THE WEEK - Hockey Day In Canada

When it comes to my Trevor Linden collection, I like to add all sorts of stuff.  Regular issue cards, promo cards, show cards, oddball stuff - I've even landed some posters, figures and magazines.  While I primarily go after his hockey cards, I do dabble in other pieces of Trevor Linden memorabilia.  Often times it's the initial 'wow factor' that makes me want to pursue it.  Rarity and focus on the player being another.

This item is one that I was excited to see come my way.  Mostly because I didn't even know it existed until it hit my mailbox.

This Scotiabank Hockey Day In Canada photo comes from just this past season.  It's about the size of a Beehive card/photo and was issued out (I believe) to people who attended the HDIC event held in Richmond.

Trevor participated in a floor hockey event there and signed photos for people afterwards.

So I'm wondering why mine wasn't signed?  :)

Again, I had no idea this item existed until a Linden collector, whom I've know for many years, e-mailed me asking if I would be interested in one.  We had been working on a trade/sale for a number of weeks and this was placed into the mix.  He didn't send me a scan at the time so I was really excited to see the item when it arrived in my mailbox last week.

Needless to say it fits really nice into my Linden collection.  I have a number of oversized cards and team issued items that make for a unique component to my overall Linden collection.

Thanks Victor for the help with my collection (not just for this item, but for all the pieces you've helped me add).  I really appreciate it.


  1. Hey just wondering if you ever got my package in the mail?

    1. Hey Brad

      Nothing recently. I did get your package from our trade a while back if that's what you meant.

    2. No :/ I sent something you way maybe two weeks ago that I came across while going through some cards.

    3. Hey Brad,

      I found it!!!

      It was tucked in with some flyers sitting in my recycling box. Good thing I'm a terrible procrastinator when it comes to taking my recycling to the bins.

      Thanks very much for the Linden photo. That set never gets the credit it deserves.

      I really appreciate the kind gesture (and the e-mail.....if you wouldn't have mentioned it, I might never have found it).


    4. Haha good to hear! I was a little worried. Hope you like it and don't already have it. But I'm sure you already do.
