A handful of toploaders just jingling around inside. Thankfully none of the cards were damaged as the toploaders were taped at the top. But still....dicey.
I won a Linden card on ebay a few weeks back and I knew that the seller had a number of other cards up for auction. I started picking off auction after auction - many of the cards were $1 Masked Men (I'll pay that price all day long).
I even picked up a second Linden (not worthy of scanning), a Decades 90s jersey card....again for a buck.
But the main card was absolutely not a dollar pickup. I wish it were. But it's worth the few extra bucks I paid.
2012/13 In The Game Decades 90s
#M-44 Game-Used Patch Black
Limited to just 6 copies, this patch card was the second or third copy I've seen pop up. I was calm and cautious on the outside but inside I really wanted this item. Like I said, it was sitting at a pretty fair price and I knew that this might be my best shot at landing this piece.
It's a great three color patch, matching the jersey shown in the photo. It's small things like that which really make a card complete.
And while I still have a number of cards left on the Decades 90s wantlist, it's nice to strike off one of the tougher items.
On a side note, there are a couple new Trevor Linden cards going on the wantlist. Panini's latest offering - Playbook - has included Trev in just one insert set. AUTObiography is a signature card (out of 99) so it should be a fairly easy snag. There's also a gold 1/1.....meh.
Now I'm off to the post office. Me thinks there's a very big Linden card waiting for me. Stay tuned.
