Hockey cards have been around for over a hundred years. From the earliest tobacco cards through the classic s issues to cards of today's superstars like Sidney Crobsy or Alexander Ovechkin, the cardboard depiction of the stars of the National Hockey League continue to delight fans of all ages. This is a tight-knit field with room for several cards to move up the list in the coming years. Arguably the greatest player of all time, Bobby Orr is a true hockey legend. The Topps USA Test set was a very limited issue similar to the regular issue, but with back in English only Black college sluts opposed to the bilingual information found on the standard issues.
It is rare to find in any condition and this excellent example of the Bruins legend commanded a very strong price. The great goalie Jake the Snake makes a splash onto the list with his Quaker Oats card. Made by Parkhurst and distributed in Quaker Oats, the cards boast a similar design to the regular Parkhurst issue, but have different color ink on back.
This card boasts a great action shot of Plante without the famous mask he was responsible for launching into everyday use. Condition is an issue as these cards were distributed inside containers of Quaker Oats and were easily damaged in transport.
The Blonde Devil Ta7642 am radio circuit about as many misadventures off the ice as great plays on the ice, but remains a fan favorite. The Hall of Philippe boxis came calling for Guy in Another Hall of Fame great and another legitimate contender for greatest hockey player of all time and definitely the greatest left winger the game has ever known.
The future Hall of Famer is depicted as a young star on this Canadian issue tobacco card. The second card on the list from the Topps issue and the second appearance on the list for the legend Howe. Mario Lemieux accomplished as much as anyone in the history of the game during his long and illustrious career.
A scoring machine, the powerful Lemieux could and did score in every imaginable way: shorthanded, penalty, empty net. The Hall of Fame was all too eager to enshrine Lemieux once he was retired only to find Mario back on the ice. He joined Howe and Lafleur as the only three players to take the ice again after being enshrined. The rookie card of Gordie Howe would be sought after from any set, but the Parkhurst issue is especially tough. Smaller than today's cards, the Parkhurst hockey set was issued on thin paper stock and once cut is said to have been mixed up inside a cement mixer for generating randomness for collation.
Needless to say, few mint examples survived. Any high grade Parkhurst cards are valuable, but this one of the ageless Mr. Hockey is Kasidie swing valuable. Both the Test Issue and Regular Issue make the top 10 list, but with a substantial price difference.
The Great One. Regarded by many as simply the greatest hockey player of all time, there are not enough superlatives to describe the legend. Hno olpe cards are experiencing a growth in the number of collectors, but prices fall well shy of baseball greats.

Check out this story. Friend of a friend came over to trade middle school days. He traded me that card for nhl hockey pucks with team logos on them that they sold at the games. I had a few dozen of different teams. The police show up at my door a few weeks later.
They asked me if I had that card. I told him I did. Gave it to him. He said it was stolen. Ended up that the guy that traded me; his friend stole it. I knew "of" the person it was stolen from. Suffice to say, I was out my pucks and the card.
That ended my trading except for close friends. The guy got his card back so good for him. Found a binder of hockey cards that my son put together in the 80s wondering are they have any value. True, the card quality grade is important. Frayed corners will significantly reduce the value of the card. Nice article. The grade is everything! Of the over cards submitted to Beckett, I think only 2 Gretzkys have graded over 9. This is what makes it so high. Run-of-the-mill Gretzky rookies are everywhere.
He has two Imperial Tobacco cards from and Prices escalate rapidly based on condition - especially graded. Will the same card in the same grade still bring the same money? Who knows, but at least one buyer and seller exchanged these cards at these prices. It is amazing how much the value is effected after you grade it. The trick is to know what other cards will become valuable! I bough a lot of martin brodeur rookie cards :D. It is time to pull out the old hockey cards from the attic and take a look.
Thanks for the hub! Nice Cards. I have a lot of old cards, so I will go through them. And I have a question, are these cards valued in your opinion or how much they actually go for? Ask him if he has anything else he wants to give you lol. Scott - You can join PSA and get it graded, but if this can be expensive.
Many card shops offer PSA grading services where you can drop your card off and they submit it for you. Also, if you live near a large city, PSA often sets up at major card shows and does on-the-spot grading.
I think Beckett also has an online price guide. Many companies still publish annual guides and there are still monthly magazines too. Thanks for reading! Great Hub! I really enjoyed collecting hockey cards when I was younger, and I still have a decent collection.
I actually kept all my old price guides too. Do they still make those? Is there an online version? Condition is everything. I agree with you that these prices are fairly silly. You can buy a nice example for much less. It is like this with anything. Someone in the world has the nicest 62 Thunderbird or whatever and I'm sure it is worth many multiples of a daily driver. People want what they want and are willing obviously to pay for it. I'm a much lower grade collector and love my cards just the same.
An interesting page here, but those prices are for perfect samples which only matter to rich perfectionists and wannabees. The guy who mentioned eBay above is right. All these cards can be had starting at.
DM - you are correct in that lesser condition cards are not worth this money. At least to some buyer. Many of these can be bought in lesser conditions for a fraction of the price. There is much competition between collectors for graded cards and sometimes the difference between an 8 and a 9 can be hundreds or thousands of dollars. It is just the nature Most expensive hockey card ever the hobby now. Hockey cards are very nice. I own a ton of cards all sports but I have noticed the hockey rookies the last five years have been worth quite a lot of money, especially Sid the kid Oveckin, and Malkins.
