I have a few of those cards too, as well as some others like I have posted.

I guess looking back, I don't believe I ever purchased/obtained those cards looking to get rich but did so just because I thought the guy was an awesome hockey player and a hometown hero.

Not to say I don't wish those cards were worth something now, but even then, I am not so sure I'd sell them?

Great article about Eric and how all the controversy back then has all been accepted today.

He continues to do a lot for hockey, even today.

I have a friend who's a Flyers fan, I sent him a message saying that I hope the HHOF exhibit included a photo of Lindros with all the Stanley Cups he won with the Flyers. He didn't like that too much....

Nope, I don't imagine he did!

It's funny, the guy had a ridiculous amount of expectations coming out of Junior Hockey. Guaranteed the next Mario Lemiuex.

For a long time he was considered somewhat of a bust by a lot of people, but in retrospect, taken apart from those expectations he had a damn good career.

A better comparison probably might be somebody like Cam Neely. Another guy who's career was limited due to injuries.

If it were the hockey that is played today, I'd say Eric would have been one of the all time greats to ever play the game, but with the amount of fighting, illegal hits and other shenanigans that went on during his time, it is obvious it took a toll on him, sadly.

A couple recent additions and one of the best hockey pics of all time, imo.

No, not a personal pic. I noticed it somewhere, sometime ago and just saved it.

Talk about a bunch of superstars all in one pic!

that's a great photo! and maybe lindros didn't live up to all the expectation, but he's a hof'er. the hockey hof is not as tough as baseball, i'd like to see kariya in there also...he's even more borderline than lindros.
