Sidney Crosby and his top 3 rookie cards

  • 2 min read

Regardless of where you stand in the Sidney Crosby vs. Alexander Ovechkin “who is the best player now” debate, it’s only fair we come up with our top 3 of Sid the Kid’s rookie cards as we did with Ovie.

Here are our favorites.

2005-2006 SP Authentic #181

We can’t not include his SP Authentic “future watch” autographed card, which is serial numbered to 999 and a popular brand for those chasing autographed rookie cards.

His autograph is clean and also consists of his number (87) which is a nice personal touch.

Any Crosby fan would be lucky to have this as part of their collection although one that’s BGS Graded 9.5/10 or higher could be rather pricey now.

2005-2006 Upper Deck Artifacts #224

Here’s a nice looking card, well-centred with a clean design, which also indicates it’s part of a rookie set.

Although it’s not autographed, it is serial numbered to 750.

The foil of the Upper Deck logo and player’s name is a nice added touch.

2005-2006 Upper Deck Young Guns

Even more popular than the aforementioned SP Authentic autographed card is the Upper Deck Young Guns rookie cards for most hockey card collectors.

Crosby’s Young Guns card is extremely popular despite not being autographed or serial numbered.

The prices on eBay for cards graded 9.5 or higher indicate there is still a big demand for them.
