Martin St. Louis Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Martin St. Louis

Date of Birth: 6/18/1975
Rookie Card Year: 1998-99
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

Hockey card collectors and even casual fans of the game appreciate the trading cards and autographed memorabilia of Martin St. Louis. The gifted scorer and proven winner originally signed with the Calgary Flames after a strong college career. Since that time, he has gone on to win a Stanley Cup and has been the NHL's MVP and top scorer.

Playing most of his career for the small-market Tampa Bay Lightning, it was easy for him to go largely unnoticed by collectors. However, his trade to the New York Rangers in 2014 brought the superstar increased notoriety and a new fan base.

Martin St. Louis' five rookie cards come from 1998-99 hockey sets produced by Pacific and Upper Deck. Professionally graded copies of his Upper Deck rookie card attract the most demand.

His first certified autograph card is from 2001-02 Be A Player Signature Series. His first memorabilia card can be found in 2002-03 Pacific Quest for the Cup. Neither of the cards are serial numbered and exact print runs are not known.

After winning the Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004, the prices of Martin St. Louis autographed memorabilia went up considerably. Anything associated with that championship carries a premium. The move to a much larger market has significantly increased demand for St. Louis' signature, as well.

Martin St. Louis Rookie Card Checklist

1998-99 Pacific Crown Royale Martin St. Louis RC #20

1998-99 Pacific Crown Royale Martin St Louis RC

The card's beautiful gold foil accents and trademark die-cut, make it a visually appealing and affordable option for collectors.

1998-99 Pacific Dynagon Martin St. Louis RC #28

1998-99 Pacific Dynagon Martin St Louis RC

Don't let the odd brand name deter you from acquiring this rookie card. The unique design and color scheme make for a striking contrast.

1998-99 Pacific OMEGA Martin St. Louis RC #38

1998-99 Pacific OMEGA Martin St Louis RC

This card pairs St Louis with fellow Calgary Flames rookie Rico Fata. Like a lot of baseball cards from the 1970s, this works against the card as Fata drags down the overall appeal.

1998-99 Upper Deck Martin St. Louis RC #234

1998-99 Upper Deck Martin St Louis RC

This is one of St. Louis' most popular rookie cards. That said, it came out before the Young Guns subset took off a short time later.

1998-99 Upper Deck Gold Reserve Martin St. Louis RC #234

1998-99 Upper Deck Gold Reserve Martin St Louis RC

Although it uses the same photo and design as the base RC (above), the differentiation comes with the gold foil. It is not a parallel of the base Upper Deck card but is from an entirely separate brand.

Martin St. Louis Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Martin St. Louis signature autograph will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. Regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features:

  1. It is a short and simple signature that consists of the initials "M-S-t-L."
  2. The "M" can vary in style. Sometimes the humps are more rounded, while other times they are more pointed (as in the example above).
  3. The "S" is written on a slight angle with both the top and bottom curves being near mirror images of each other.
  4. The "t" uses the right side of the vertical crossing stroke to begin the "L," which, when finished, resembles a backwards "S".
  5. He almost always includes his jersey "26" as an inscription.
