Evgeni Malkin Cards, Rookie Cards and Autograph Memorabilia Guide

Evgeni Malkin

Date of Birth: 7/31/1986
Rookie Card Year: 2006-07
Investment Rating: 8.0


Evgeni Malkin is one of the best hockey players in the world. And while his presence in the hobby is strong, one has to wonder if he's lurking in the shadows. Starring alongside Sidney Crosby, arguably the most popular player in the sport, Malkin doesn't generate as much hobby buzz. But another run or two at the Stanley Cup could send Evgeni Malkin cards and memorabilia to an even higher level.

The Penguins picked the Russian standout with the second-overall pick in the 2004 draft, behind only Alexander Ovechkin. He debuted with Pittsburgh a couple of years later and made an immediate impact. Malkin notched 85 points during his rookie season, winning the Calder Trophy in the process as the NHL's top first-year player.

Malkin won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2009 as the Penguins won the Stanley Cup. He racked up 36 points in 24 postseason games. The center took home the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL's MVP in 2012. It's also worth noting that Malkin has shown a knack for stepping up his game during periods when Sidney Crosby has injured for long periods of time. Malkin hasn't been immune to being hurt, but he's bounced back well every time so far.

Evgeni Malkin rookie cards are in 2006-07 products. Collectors have more than 20 options, all of which are spread nicely between price levels. Some remain cheap, others extremely expensive and a handful in between. Malkin has five autographed rookie cards, which are considered the top options.

When Evgeni Malkin cards are some of the most coveted in the league, he's still not as popular with collectors as Sidney Crosby or Alexander Ovechkin. He's on a level below despite having shown tremendous skill and the ability to lead the Penguins to hockey's ultimate prize. It's a similar situation to how Jaromir Jagr and Mario Lemieux paired up on the team in the 1990s or Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier a few years before that. But as time goes on and the Penguins continue to win, Malkin's time in the hobby will come, much like Jagr. Will he ever break free from Crosby's shadow? Probably not completely as long as they're on the same team. But it's still some very special company to be keeping.
