Mats Sundin Cards, Rookie Cards and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Mats Sundin

Date of Birth: 2/13/1971
Rookie Card Year: 1990-91
Investment Rating: 7.5


Overview

Mats Sundin is arguably one of the most under-rated superstars to have played in the NHL. He is a 500 goal scorer, and is probably best known for his 13 years with the Toronto Maple Leafs. A fan favorite, Mats Sundin cards and autographed memorabilia are well respected in the hobby.

Sundin has six rookie cards from 1990-91 products. The print runs of the cards were excessive and there is ample supply. Professionally graded examples receiving top grades receive only a minor premium.

Mats Sundin's first NHL certified autograph is from 1995-96 Be A Player. A die-cut parallel also exists. The cards are not serial numbered and the exact print runs are unknown.

His first memorabilia cards were produced by Upper Deck in 1996-97. They are part of the Game Jersey insert set.

Mats Sundin's autographed memorabilia has room for growth in terms of value.  His signature is a must on any 500 Goal Club piece. In addition to playing for the Maple Leafs, Sundin spent his early years in the NHL with the now defunct Quebec Nordiques. The rich history of the Quebec fan base translates to a premium for Sundin signed items related to the Nordiques.

Mats Sundin Rookie Card Checklist

1990-91 OPC Premier Mats Sundin RC #114

This is one of the most popular Mats Sundinrookie cards. It was intended to be a premium spin on the O-Pee-Chee brand. Believed to be limited at first, it's still very plentiful.

1990-91 Pro Set Mats Sundin RC #636

1990 91 Pro set Mats Sundin RC 214x300 Image

It's a shame Pro Set cards were so mass produced. The card actually features a great photo and an in-depth write-up on the back. Unfortunately, there are just too many of these cards in existence for them to ever really be worth much.

1990-91 Score Mats Sundin RC #398

While other Mats Sundin rookie cards show him in his Nordiques uniform, Score uses a shot with a Swedish jersey. It's a nice contrast but one that doesn't translate into price premiums. The all-English American version of the card has a blue Score logo on the front.

1990-91 Score Canadian Mats Sundin RC #398

For its debut hockey release, Score did a bilingual version. This set has a red Score logo at the top of the card. Both versions have such a massive supply that one isn't really worth more than the other. In fact, both are extremely cheap.

1990-91 Upper Deck Mats Sundin RC #365

1990 91 Upper Deck Mats Sundin RC 216x300 Image

Next to O-Pee-Chee Premier, this is probably considered to be the second most popular Mats Sundin rookie. It may not be worth much, but it's got a nice posed shot. It also benefits from being a part of Upper Deck's first hockey set.

1990-91 Upper Deck French Mats Sundin RC #365

1990 91 Upper Deck French Mats Sundin RC 216x300 Image

When 1990-91 Upper Deck French was released, prices soared based on a very short print run. Even if it was in low supply initially, it didn't finish that way. Pretty much all premiums the set carried have been lost. The only noticeable difference on the front of the French version is the word "Centre."
