Not too long ago, the "first" Montreal Canadiens jersey piece was used on a Linden card (and I know it won't be the last). This past spring showcased the "first" Captain C patch pieces (front-runner for card(s) of the year). And this new addition also has a "first"...
2010/11 Panini Playoff Contenders
#8 (with Mike Modano) dual auto
While Trev has been paired up on a card with Mike Modano before, this card is the first to include a Modano autograph.
I love the fact that Modano and Linden went 1-2 in the 1988 draft. It sounds so much more impressive than if it were Daniel Dore (who went 5th overall to Quebec......and proceeded to play in only 17 games, racking up a whopping 5 career points).
Now this isn't the first time that Linden has been paired up with a non-Canuck. For those of you who are loyal readers, you'll remember this "first".
The only time his signature has been on the same card as those legends. Nice.
"Firsts" are fun.
