Rookie Card Year: 2007-08
Investment Rating: 6.0
The Chicago Blackhawks selected Jonathan Toews with the third overall pick in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. The team had high hopes that he would serve as the cornerstone in the organization's rebuilding efforts. He hasn't disappointed.
Toews' rookie year of 2007-08 saw him notch 24 goals and tally 30 assists for 54 points in just 64 games. His ability to work both ends of the ice contributed to a +/- rating of +11 and he was nominated for the Calder Trophy as league's top rookie. The following season he was named captain of the team, one of the youngest ever to wear the coveted “C." An active participant for Team Canada in international competition, Toews has racked up five gold medals. The face of the franchise, the often soft-spoken Toews leads by example and played a key role in the Blackhawks' 2010 Stanley Cup victory.
Toews has 19 rookie cards, all of which come from 2007-08 products. Of those, just six are autographed. Fortunately for collectors, the rookie cards are well dispersed among multiple price points, allowing even the budget-conscience collector to add to their collection. Despite not having an autograph, serial numbering or memorabilia, Toews' 2007-08 Upper Deck Young Guns #462 remains one of his most desirable cards.
