As the number one overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft, Alexis Lafreniere will have high expectations to perform both for New York Rangers fans and hockey card collectors.
The buzz is already high with Lafreniere showcasing his elite skills at the junior level.
But time will tell if he’s able to perform under the bright city lights of the Big Apple. In the meantime, here are 3 rookie cards we like best with links provided below.
1. 2020-21 Upper Deck Young Guns Rookie Card
Young Guns is one of the more highly sought subsets from the Upper Deck brand.
So you can bet Lafreniere who has one in the 2020-21 set will be the big hit from these hobby boxes.
There are more rare clear cut parallels to be had, which will set you back a few thousand dollars
2. 2017-18 Upper Deck CHL Star Rookie Card
One of his first cards issued is from the 2017-18 Upper Deck CHL Hockey Card set.
The SP card features Lafreniere playing in the juniors for Rimouski Océanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
3. 2020-21 Upper Deck Young Guns Canvas Rookie Card
An alternative and more affordable option to the regular Young Guns base card is the Canvas card.
It can also be found in some packs of Upper Deck Series 1.
