In 2017, the Washington Capitals dominated the season capturing the President’s Trophy for the most points in the regular season.
The team was led by none other than Alexander “Ovie” Ovechkin who continued to perform at a high level with a 30-plus goal and 30-plus assist season.
Here’s our selection for Ovie’s top 3 rookie cards.
2005-2006 SP Authentic #190
The “future watch” series in the SP Authentic set is one of the highly sought autographed rookie cards for superstar hockey players.
But for any Ovechkin fan who likes collecting autographed rookie cards, this one is a must-have.
Value (as of April 2017): $650 (BGS Graded 9.5/10)
2005-2006 Upper Deck Young Guns #443
The “Young Guns” series by Upper Deck is another popular subset for hockey card collectors.
And it’s one of the more affordable rookie cards that belong to Ovie even those that are graded.
This is a good non-autographed card to start your Ovechkin rookie collection.
Value (as of April 2017): $175 (BGS Graded 9.5)
2005-2006 Upper Deck Ice Premieres #103
Serial numbered to just /99, this card has a clean design with a cutout photo of Ovechkin in action.
The limited supply makes this card especially valuable despite not having his autograph on card.
Value (as of April 2017): $8,000 (PSA Graded GEM MT 10)
