Overview

Alexander Ovechkin is one of the best young talents in the NHL. He also represents one of the stronger investment opportunities for hockey fans. Along with Sidney Crosby, Ovechkin's popularity with collectors has been on the rise since he started his professional career with the Washington Capitals in 2005.  His fiercely competitive nature may polarize fans, but there's no denying his drawing power in the hockey world. Alexander Ovechkin card collectors are among the most loyal in the hobby.The Russian gets a further boost thanks to his international appeal.

Although few will question his abilities, Ovechkin has been unable to transfer it to playoff success. This one fact holds him back from reaching the top-level of hockey collecting superstardom. Given that the Capitals have surrounded the goal-scorer with great talent, Ovechkin should one day raise the Stanley Cup. If that does happen, Ovechkin memorabilia and cards should see a tremendous rise, rewarding those who got in before the rush began.
