So I switched over from Google to Swagbucks as my search engine for a couple days and pretty soon I had earned enough 'bucks' to order a card. There wasn't much of a selection to choose from under the hockey card category but I had my eyes set on this:
1993-94 Upper Deck All Rookie Team
Eric Lindros #280
I've always liked the stop frame action against the dark background design to these cards and as I can remember were a hit to pull when I was a kid. I remember having a Bure All-Rookie Team card like this but I think it was from the year previous.
Anyway story short, I ordered it.
Every order comes with this card you use to show your Swagbucks order with in a picture as a proof of purchase; send the picture of yourself and your item to the e-mail listed on the card and you earn a few bonus points. I threw my card out awhile a go so this is a scan I found on Google images.
As for the actual card that I received, remember Eric Lindros Upper Deck All-Rookie Team - I didn't get it. Instead as a replacement of sort I'm assuming, I was sent:
1992-93 Fleer Ultra
Eric Lindros #157
This Lindros card from the 92-93 Fleer Ultra set. I already have this card in my collection but I've always really liked it and treasured it growing up, especially in the Lindros rookie era. Still have it kept in a top loader.
I like the helmetless young Lindros and oddly enough - I think it shows Lindros' burliness.
The backs of the Fleer Ultra series were my favorite during the early 90s as well; featuring a simple full body and head shot of the player. Fleer Ultra only included the last seasons and career stats but I guess it was to leave more room spotlighting the photography.
I was surprised that I didn't receive the card that I had ordered but overall pleased with the card that they decided to replace it with.
Just wanted to do a trial run on the website and it worked out. If you're bored and looking to receive some snail mail containing free trading cards I would recommend it.
