This is the HOLY GRAIL of Jeremy Lin basketball cards! This is Lin's Jersey #17/25 and a 2-color patch for his best card in the world!!! Not to mention………the card is graded BGS 9.5 GEM MINT!
There is NO BETTER Jeremy Lin card than this; a TRUE 1/1 Masterpiece!
We could someday be comparing this card to the Honus Wagner tobacco rookie and other great sports card collector’s items.
The BGS 9.5 GEM MINT subgrades are as follows:
· Centering: 10
· Corners: 9.5
· Edges: 9.5
· Surface 9
· Autograph: 8
Lin has taken over the sport of Basketball like never seen before and it's only been 1 week! LINSANITY IS SWEEPING THE WORLD!!!!
He is the most talked about professional athlete today and could change the sport of basketball across the world – FOREVER! He is only 23 years old and will only continue to improve.
Jeremy Lin has over 1,000,000 followers on China twitter right now and it is growing by leaps and bounds with each passing day. The cheapest tickets to last night's game in Toronto (which sounded like a raucous home game for the Knicks) was selling for over $80/ticket. To put that number in perspective, the majority of future Raptors games this year can be had for $4.00 each. He is selling out arenas around the country and increases ticket sales not just in New York but everywhere.
The hype: The most amazing part of all this hype is that the NBA hasn't even begun the endorsements for Jeremy Lin yet! Once Lin shoes, Lin billboards and Lin commercials begin, we may see a phenomenon like never before. This has barely begun to scratch the surface. Tracy McGrady apparently had 1,000,000 followers as well just because he played WITH Yao Ming. Yao was an OUTSTANDING basketball player. But, he wasn't exceptionally exciting to watch, he didn't speak English very well, and he played in Houston. Lin is in New York City, is bi-lingual, religious and humble, incredibly exciting to watch, and maybe most of all he is the ultimate underdog.
I will be attaching an article from Beckett that I did with them this past week. I'm hoping to do the transaction with the winner Face-to-Face with a representative from Beckett present (and any other media outlets that are interested). Maybe at MSG???? I will accept online payment however or a mailed check (preferably cashiers) but will need to wait for full clearance before shipment.
This is your chance to be a part of a truly historic period of time in NBA history.

The auto is BEAUTIFUL btw. Most are in the middle and this is lower down it go an 8 not a 10, am considering a re-grading. Auto is CRISP and clear & the subgrades are incredible! We will forever link Lin to #17 like Bird #33 Jordan #23 and other legends!

Thank you all very much for the kind words and unwavering support. Its been a heck of a week beyond my wildest imaginations and you all helped make it possible even if you just viewed the auction. We are well over 11,000 viewers and close to 1,000 eBay watchers with what feels like endless media coverage. So cool.
I'm aware of the false negative remarks that were written in other similar auctions. I cannot control the words/actions of others. However, I will not engage in a war of words. I wish all Jeremy Lin card owners the best of luck and I will leave it to the people to decide the greatest Jeremy Lin card in the world!
P.S. Did you see the ungraded Jeremy Lin Prime Patch Auto #/25 that ended today for over $10,000! WoW!

I will be on Fox Business in studio on the Stuart Varney show WITH the Jeremy Lin card tomorrow at 10:30am EST. Tune in!
On Feb-21-12 at 15:26:09 PST, seller added the following information:
I lowered the reserve to $17,100 to not confuse anyone with the numbers as i've had many questions asked about the reserve. This card is priced to sell and I will let you all decide what number that is.
If the Knicks make a playoff run though i'm sure i'll regret this bigtime!
