TREVOR LINDEN COLLECTION - STOLEN

To begin.....my collection has not been stolen.

I have had the pleasure to deal with, trade with and most importantly converse with a few Linden collectors over my 20 years of collecting Trev cards.  I consider it one of the greatest aspects of my hobby world.  So I find it extremely disturbing and saddening to hear that a major Linden collection has been stolen.

I received word over the past weekend that a fellow Linden collector had his place broken into and the bulk of his Linden collection taken.  I do not know the fine details (whether this was a targeted theft of if his house was ransacked, etc.) but I do know that I can and will do everything in my power to assist in finding and recovering this collection.

The collection came out of the Kelowna, BC area....but in this day and age, it can scoot across Canada and North America pretty quickly.

It is a substantial collection with a number of rare cards (and dozens of 1/1s).  In his most recent communication with me, he stated the following...

"Fortunately, they missed the 2015-16 and 2016-17 box, so those cards are all there, except 10 or so that were not cataloged and laying on my desk.

I also lose 5 jerseys, 2 were Miegray authenticated, the Away Washington Capital game, Canuck Home 2006-07, and 2012-13 practice jersey.

I am just starting to check what else is missing.  I had a box of assorted rookie cards, the most notable would be the 2001-02 Titanium hobby jersey numbered."

He has also forwarded his master Linden checklist to me and I'd like to share some of the cards he owns (with serial numbers).  If anyone noticed an influx of rare Linden items at a show or store, please take a moment to check this list.  If anyone finds anything on this list, please contact me and I will forward the information on.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Thank you.

  1. I heard about this... horrible. There's been a couple of thefts here too in the last week.

    Good thing you have an alibi.








    You do, have an alibi, right? :)

  2. That's terrible. I hope they're able to catch the thief by tracking down all of these serial numbered cards.

    1. Thankfully he has a very detailed checklist of his cards. Makes me want to do a little revising of my list myself. Indicating serial numbers may seem like a pain in the ass....but boy does it ever come in handy for something like this.
