Facebook Trade #5

My fifth Facebook trade was a basic 2-for-1 deal, and netted me a pretty cool dual autograph. I swapped a couple Montreal Canadiens hits with Serge L. in exchange for this card.

This comes from 2007-08 Be A Player and features autographs from Marc-Andre Fleury and Jordan Staal.It's a few years down the road now, but back when this card came out, it was a really hot item. Staal was one year removed from being the second overall draft pick in 2006, and Fleury was four years removed from being the first overall pick in 2004, so you're looking at a card autographed by two of the hottest young stars of the time. Fleury is still backstopping the Pens, and Staal was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes in 2012. Both were a part of the Penguins' Stanley Cup run in 2009, so things worked out pretty well for these young stars.
