Collecting the 2014 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductees

The 2014 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees have been announced. The list is headlined by a handful of 1990's greats that have deep roots in the hobby. Mike Modano, Peter Forsberg, Dominik Hasek and Rob Blake were all popular with collectors and still command attention today. Joining them is late coaching legend, Pat Burns and referee Bill McCreary.

Given the era in which they played, rookie cards of all the 2014 Hockey Hall of Fame players are easy to find and very affordable.

Blake and Modano have the most rookie cards of the group. However, they're from 1990-91 sets, some of the most plentiful every produced. Both have rookies in 1990-91 O-Pee-Chee Premier, which ranks among the year's most valuable sets, not that that means much today. Although not considered by most to be rookie cards, collectors may want to track down Blake's 1990-91 Bowman Tiffany and Modano's 1990-91 Bowman Tiffany and Topps Tiffany cards. Available only as part of special factory sets, they're rarer and made with better printing standards.

Burns also has his rookie card from 1990-91. He was included in Pro Set's subset dedicated to coaches. Collectors should be able to find one in a commons bin or just slightly more.

1990-91 Pr0 Set is also the place where you'll find Bill McCreary's rookie card. In its inaugural season in hockey, the now-defunct card maker produced a referees subset. It could very well be the cheapest rookie card for a Hall of Famer from the big four sports.

Forsberg has just two rookie cards, 1991-92 Upper Deck and 1991-92 Upper Deck French.

That's also the same year Hasek 's rookies are from. The six-time Vezina winner has eight rookie cards, although when you take language variations into account, there are only five different designs.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection. Ryan can be found on Twitter @tradercracks and Google+.
