Ted Lindsay Stanley Cup Signatures

The funny thing with Ebay, is that I get so conditioned with the idea of a BIN/OBO being overpriced in order to accept a lower offer, that when I just see a straight-up BIN, I'm not sure if it's at a good price, or if it's a little too high. That was the case with this one. I wasn't sure if the price was good or not, but either way, this card was worth it to me. I was more than willing to pay $20 for this Ted Lindsay Stanley Cup Signatures card from 2010-11 Upper Deck The Cup, numbered 3/50.


Considering Lindsay's career accomplishments, I thought the price was more than reasonable. He had an amazing career, but is most remembered as one of the men responsible for forming the National Hockey League Players Association, and in recognition of that, the Lester B. Pearson award was renamed the Ted Lindsay Award in 2010. Lindsay played a total of 17 seasons in the NHL, 14 with the Detroit Red Wings and three with the Chicago Blackhawks, totaling 379 goals and 472 assists in 1,068 games. He won the Art Ross Trophy in 1950 as the league's leading scorer, and is a four-time Stanley Cup champion (1950, 1952, 1954, 1955). He is also credited as the man responsible for beginning the tradition of skating around the rink with the Cup, which he did in order for fans to see the trophy up close. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966.
