Lindbergh lives on today as a "what could have been" story. He had won the Vezina trophy in 1984-85 and had backstopped the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals. He was the first European goalie to win any NHL awards or honours.
Lindbergh only had two OPC cards. He had a rookie card in the 1983-84 set, and then also a card in the 1985-86 set. He never had a card in the 1984-85 set. He struggled in the 1983-84 season, allowing Bob Froese to get the majority of starts, and the lone Flyers goalie card in the set. I created this card during last summer, before OPC put out its 2012-13 set. Unfortunately, they used the exact same picture for Lindbergh's sticker insert.
