Nathan MacKinnon Rookie Card Guide

Nathan MacKinnon Rookie Card Guide

Nathan MacKinnon started his NHL career with lots of promise and fanfare. Following a tremendous junior career, he was taken first overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2013 draft. While there already were plenty of Nathan MacKinnon cards to chase at that point, his first NHL cards had to wait a little bit. Having cracked Colorado's opening night roster, the floodgate for Nathan MacKinnon rookie cards has opened.

While he didn't make Panini and Upper Deck's first sets of the year, collectors still have lots to choose from. Whether you're into autographs and memorabilia or you just want a (relatively) cheap card for your collection, they're all available. He is part of a loaded double-rookie crop that includes players who debuted this year and the shortened 2012-13 season.

Get a detailed look at all the Nathan MacKinnon rookie cards below. We've included his base cards and not inserts as these aren't considered to be official rookie cards.

2013-14 Panini Dominion Nathan MacKinnon RC #201 Autographed Patch #/99

With features normally reserved for a late release, this card has both an on-card autograph and a patch from a player-worn jersey. It's not a game-used piece of memorabilia, though. Numbered to 99, this high-end card is one of the top Nathan MacKinnon rookies.

2013-14 Panini Titanium Nathan MacKinnon RC #233 #/29

The 2013-14 Panini Titanium Nathan MacKinnon rookie card is all about scarcity. Official rookie cards from the set are limited to the player's jersey number. That means MacKinnon's is numbered to just 29. Titanium does have more plentiful parallels and inserts that some collectors might have to settle for instead.

2013-14 Panini Totally Certified Nathan MacKinnon RC #229

Looking for something wild? Totally Certified takes no prisoners when it comes to bold designs. The basic version of the Nathan MacKinnon rookie doesn't have any enhancements beyond its look. As a result, it's relatively affordable. It's not the easiest card to find, though, as boxes don't have a lot of base cards. There's also and autographed jersey version that's more popular but also much more expensive.

2013-14 Select Nathan MacKinnon RC #301 Autograph #/399

2013-14 Select Hockey is the first set to have an autographed Nathan MacKinnon rookie card. Numbered to 399, it's done on chromium stock. The sticker used for the signature is a bit of a detraction, but this could prove to be a solid value over the long-term.

2013-14 SP Game-Used Nathan MacKinnon RC #152 #/29

Like Panini Titanium, this card is limited to 29 copies, matching his jersey number. Needless to say, it commands big prices on the secondary market despite being an otherwise plain card.

2013-14 SPx Nathan MacKinnon RC #208 Autographed Dual-Memorabilia #/249

The big draw here is the combination of an autograph and a pair of jersey swatches. The signature is on a sticker, which should keep the price down a little, especially once more high-end sets release towards season's end. That said, SPx is one of the sport's more respected brands so it should hold up well over the long-term.

2013-14 Upper Deck Nathan MacKinnon RC #238

Despite no serial numbers or even much of a premium feel, the 2013-14 Upper Deck Nathan MacKinnon is one of his most widely coveted cards. The Young Guns name has a massive hobby following, drawing in collectors who don't normally do much hockey.

2013-14 Upper Deck Black Diamond Nathan MacKinnon RC #229

Black Diamond's etched foil look is distinct. The tiered structure is also somewhat unique in that they're not serial numbered either. Like Upper Deck, player collectors and set builders compete for copies, giving it added crossover appeal.

2013-14 Upper Deck Ice Nathan MacKinnon RC #123 #/99

Included in 2013-14 Upper Deck Black Diamond bonus packs, this acetate card is limited to just 99 copies. Rarity alone will keep prices fairly high, although the brand has a solid following as well.
