LINDEN uh....PIN(s) OF THE WEEK - Two More For The Collection

I normally don't salivate at the sight of pins - even Linden pins, but when I saw this two-pack up for sale on ebay I just couldn't resist.

What can I say...I'm a sucker for a good deal.

In fact, I thought it was such a good deal that I bought two sets.  One to store away in the collection box and one to crack open.

I have little info on these NHL/NHLPA endorsed pins other than when I saw them during a routine ebay search (for the price they were sitting at) I decided to buy them.  I thought they looked neat (at the price I paid).

Are you getting the sense that I'm just a cheapo when it comes to these pins?  I am.

I can get on board with smaller Linden items that can fit nicely in boxes as opposed to giant banners or stand-up cardboard displays.

OK....I have some of that kind of stuff too.

I just really liked the idea of getting the second set.  Cracking them open out of the plastic was fun.....more fun than I thought I'd have.

There's really nothing too special about these pins.  Simple designs.  A cash grab to fans of Linden alike.  What can I say, I got sucked in.

But when I put the set I didn't open in my "non-cards" box, I found this...

Looks like I have the home and away set now.

Why didn't I buy a second set of those ones?  Probably too expensive.


  1. I've visited your blog every once in a while and have seen that you've got quite the Linden collection. I was going through some old media guides I had and came across a 91-92 Canucks yearbook with him on the cover. Don't know if you'd be interested in it, but always looking to help a fellow collector out with things that I have that I don't really need to keep.

    If you have any interest, let me know. Feel free to shoot me an email at nmallard410@gmail.com and good luck with the collection.

    1. Hi Nicholas,

      Thanks for the comment. I do have that yearbook....stashed in the closet. Thanks though. I appreciate the heads up.

      Have a good one.
