Chris Kreider Rookie Cards Checklist and Guide

Chris Kreider Rookie Cards Checklist and Guide

Thanks to the labor dispute that threatened the 2012-13 NHL season, hockey card collectors have been thrown for a bit of a loop. Because of the sport's strict rules for rookie card eligibility, much of the year's first-year card crop was underwhelming in early products. Chris Kreider rookie cards are one of the notable exceptions. The New York Rangers standout  has the potential to be a superstar on Broadway for years to come.

The American-born forward is a homegrown talent for the big-market Rangers. Kreider made his debut during the 2012 postseason, netting five goals and adding a pair of assists in 18 games. His international experience includes a gold medal at the World Junior Championships in 2010. During the tournament, Kreider scored six goals in seven games.

Kreider was drafted by the Rangers with the 19th pick in the 2009 NHL Draft.

Chris Kreider Rookie Card Guide

Please note, this is an ongoing list. It will be added to as more 2012-13 hockey card sets are released and Chris Kreider has more rookie cards.

2012-13 O-Pee-Chee Chris Kreider RC #585

Although a short print, Chris Kreider's O-Pee-Chee rookie card is extremely affordable thanks to the brand's low-end price tag. The set is popular with set collectors and carries a retro vibe to it.

2012-13 Panini Certified Chris Kreider RC #183 Autographed Jersey #/499

The 2012-13 Panini Certified Chris Kreider was his first official rookie card with both an autograph and memorabilia swatch. Numbered to 499, it's not incredibly rare, which should help keep the price tag in check, at least as far as high-end rookies go.

2012-13 Panini Limited Chris Kreider RC #231 Autograph #/499

Part of the Phenoms subset, the 2012-13 Panini Limited Chris Kreider rookie comes with an autograph on a manufactured fabric piece that has a Rangers logo. The card comes numbered to 499.

2012-13 Score Chris Kreider RC #543

Collectors on a tight budget may want to consider Kreider's 2012-13 Score rookie card. A short print in Panini's entry-level brand, it can usually be found for just a couple of dollars.

2012-13 SP Game Used Chris Kreider RC #136 #/20

Taking a page from Panini Titanium, all rookie cards in 2012-13 SP Game Used are numbered to the player's jersey number. As a result, Chris Kreider has just 20 rookies in the set, making it extremely rare. The card features an otherwise plain design. More plentiful parallels and autographs are also available in the set.

2012-13 Upper Deck Chris Kreider RC #237

Upper Deck Hockey Young Guns are always among the most popular rookie cards of the year. Pursued by player, team and set collectors, not to mention prospectors, prices hold very strong despite the lack of serial numbers or other notable features.

2012-13 Upper Deck Artifacts Chris Kreider RC #186 #/999

The serial number is the big draw of the 2012-13 Upper Deck Artifacts Chris Kreider rookie card. One of the season's first releases, it has a clean design that carries a premium feel.

2012-13 Upper Deck Black Diamond Chris Kreider RC #242

Don't let the lack of numbering fool you. The 2012-13 Upper Deck Black Diamond Chris Kreider rookie card is tough to come across. Part of the Quad Diamond Rookie Gems subset, it's a super short print. Traditional for the brand, the design relies heavily on foil.

2012-13 Upper Deck Ice Chris Kreider RC #46 #/99

Numbered to just 99 copies, the 2012-13 Upper Deck Ice Chris Kreider is printed on acetate card stock. This makes it one of his most distinct rookie cards. The card is randomly inserted in bonus packs from 2012-13 Upper Deck Black Diamond Hockey.
