For me it has never been just the “value” of a card. There are a lot of factors involved when it comes to me keeping one for my PC (personal collection).
First thing is the picture, is it a great action shot, is it outdoors with snow falling, is it something new, is it someone I really like? Of course the overall look of the card could be a factor and now we have autos/relics etc to add to the attractiveness of the card. Favourite team, rookies, misprints, specific action shots like goalies drinking from their water bottles, players with their skates off, perhaps the athlete playing another sport.
This card has it all, a cool action shot, outdoors (probably in the skydome)
Just a great looking card. Lindros was still a newcomer to the NHL and how badass is it that he is in a blue jays uniform taking batting practice. This is a great card with a great picture and will always be a part of my PC.
Now why do I have this card in the screw down case? Especially considering the case is worth as much as the card??? Well it has been in that case for over 20 years and big E, you have earned it.
|I wouldn't have been surprised if he had been drafted|
by a baseball team. Big E was a great athlete.
