Eric Lindros Played Baseball?!

No, he didn't but that doesn't mean I can't own a card depicting him on a baseball team. I had always wanted this 1990 Score Rookies and Traded card when I was in the hobby back in 1990s but never got around to picking it up. That changed a few weeks ago and now this card resides in my Album of Amazing. With it still being below freezing here in the Midwest I suppose hockey and baseball can go hand in hand - if only on a piece of cardboard.

    1. It was always too pricey for me when it came out. That and the fact that it was a Blue Jays card didn't put it high on my priorities. I'm glad that it's now part of my collection. A very cool card :)

  2. Easily one of the strangest cards ever produced, which, of course, makes it one of my personal favorites.

  3. Much like you, I've always wanted it, but never got it. Someday, someday.

    1. I was very surprised at how cheap this card has become. I was able to pick it up for less than 75 cents on comc. I guess patience pays off. Definitely a must own for anyone who was collecting in the early 90s.
