Overview

Teemu Selanne cards and autographed memorabilia have an international appeal. Originally from Finland, Selanne is regarded in his home country as a national hero, being the most successful Finn to ever lace up skates in the NHL. While few hockey players besides Wayne Gretzky will ever be household names, Teemu Selanne may come close simply because of his longevity in the NHL. Selanne's career began in 1988 when he was selected with the tenth overall pick by the Winnipeg Jets. He made his NHL debut in October, 1992 and his career has lasted more than 20 years.

Teemu Selanne has just two rookie cards, both produced by Upper Deck in 1991-92. The cards are nearly identical except for the fact that one of the versions is printed in French. Both cards were produced in such quantities that each can be found for just a few dollars. Gem Mint graded examples can be found in the $50 range.

Outgoing and personable, Selanne is a fan favorite. As a result, he has plenty of autographed memorabilia available on the secondary market. His love of the game and love of the fans means that he has always been a willing signer. Selanne posses one of the best signatures in the league, which displays a pride of penmanship that flows in a fluid line that reflects his skating style on the ice.

Selanne is pictured in his Team Finland uniform while taking part in the prestigious Canada Cup tournament. Released at a time that print runs were still massive, there is no shortage of supply. This keeps prices very low. Still, there is some iconic appeal to this card, which has been popular since Selanne started lighting up NHL goal lamps.

Teemu Selanne Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Teemu Selanne 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. Fluid and legible, the letters "T" and "S" define the signature and are larger in size than the other letters.
  2. The "T" is crossed but does not connect.
  3. The two "e"'s are visible but the "m-u" looks like more of just a "u."
  4. The "S" is fantastic with a large balloon shaped loop at the top and a significantly smaller corn kernel like loop at the bottom.
  5. All of the remaining letters of the last name are legible with the "l" being elongated.
  6. A tail off the final "e" comes up and back towards the signature to the left.
