Overview

Mark Messier hockey cards and memorabilia items remain incredibly popular long after his retirement from the game. An iconic figure throughout the hockey world, Messier's leadership was an instrumental part of the Edmonton Oilers Stanley Cup-winning dynasty of the late 1980s. His lore rose to mythical heights when, as the captain of the New York Rangers, he helped lead the team to the 1994 Stanley Cup. It was their first in more than 50 years.

Mark Messier rookie card is in 1980-81 O-Pee-Chee Hockey. However, it wasn't his first hockey card produced. Messier was part of the 1979-80 Oilers Postcards team set. Additionally, Mark Messier is in the 1980-81 Pepsi-Cola Hockey Caps set.

Playing in two major markets like Edmonton and New York has left no shortage of Mark Messier autographed memorabilia. An ambassador of the game, he has been a willing in-person signer and has had licensed memorabilia deals with Steiner Sports. The most popular Mark Messier autographed items include New York Rangers and Edmonton Oilers hockey pucks.

The 1980-81 O-Pee-Chee Mark Messier rookie card is considered an uncorrected error card. The card says he shoots right when he's actually a lefty. It's hardly significant enough to impact the card's value. Featuring a vertical layout, the photograph captures the young Messier preparing to take a face-off. Unlike 1980-81 Topps Hockey, the name on the front does not need to be scratched off and revealed.
