Complete Guide to Tomas Hertl Rookie Cards

Complete Guide to Tomas Hertl Rookie Cards

Tomas Hertl made quite the entrance to the NHL, totaling seven points, including six goals, in his first three games. This was capped off with a ridiculous four-goal performance against the New York Rangers. Although he cooled off as the season progressed and then suffered a serious injury, Tomas Hertl rookie cards are proving to be some of the most popular hockey cards of the year.

The Czech-born center was taken by the San Jose Sharks with the 17th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft. However, he did not sign a contract with the Sharks until 2013, electing to spend the 2012-13 season with his Czech team, HC Slavia Praha. He joined the team for the 2013-14 season and his early success resulted in a Rookie of the Month award in October. After his fast start to the 2013-14 season, Hertl suffered a knee injury that required surgery on his MCL and PCL, and could miss the rest of the year.

Outside of his NHL rookie cards, Tomas Hertl has a handful of cards produced in the Czech Republic prior to his arrival in the US. In particular, his 2011-12 OFS Signatures autographs are doing very well on the secondary market.

Get specifics on all official Tomas Hertl rookie cards below. The list only includes the base rookie card(s) from each product, and does not feature any inserts. We'll continue to update the list throughout the year. Below that, there is also a list of the top Tomas Hertl Czech cards.

2013-14 O-Pee-Chee Tomas Hertl RC #625

Checking in with one of the most basic and budget-friendly rookie card options, OPC offers a simple Tomas Hertl rookie card and a variety of parallels.

2013-14 Panini Crown Royale Tomas Hertl RC #185 Autographed Jersey #/99

One of the most popular Panini rookie designs, Silhouettes showcase a larger jersey patch and on-card signature for Tomas Hertl. The low print run keeps the values higher.

2013-14 Panini Dominion Tomas Hertl RC #205 Autographed Jersey #/99

Dominion is one of the most premium hockey offerings and it makes sense why this card commands some of the highest values on the list. Foil accents and a small patch give the card an elegant feel and there is ample signing space for the on-card signature.

2013-14 Panini Select Tomas Hertl RC #305 Autograph #/399

The first Tomas Hertl rookie card to come with an autograph, 2013-14 Select Hockey features a chromium style that's not as common the sport as it is in baseball and football. The sticker used for the signature takes away some of the appeal, but Select is proving to have some very reasonable prices given their high-end nature. Parallels come in several colors and some also have jersey swatches added.

2013-14 Panini Titanium Tomas Hertl RC #245 #/48

The Tomas Hertl main rookie card found in Titanium appears to be nothing more than a low to mid-level base rookie. However, the card is jersey numbered so there are only 48 cards total, which bumps the appeal slightly. The retail version features a different image and is easier to track down with a print run of 299.

2013-14 Panini Totally Certified Tomas Hertl RC #233

Arguably one of the better value products from the 2013-14 product lineup, Totally Certified brings a foil-heavy Tomas Hertl rookie card to collectors.

2013-14 SP Game Used Tomas Hertl RC #135 #/48

Another instance where the print run is tied to jersey number, SP Game Used is more established with collectors, so this Hertl rookie carries more weight with collectors.

2013-14 SPx Tomas Hertl RC #159, #203 Autographed Jersey #/249

Collectors are treated to two Tomas Hertl rookies in the SPx base set. The first is a foil card with a larger image of Hertl set to the left of the primary shot. While the card does not look bad, the large white diagonal stripe seems like an odd design choice. There is also an autographed jersey card with two small jersey pieces and a sticker autograph.

2013-14 Upper Deck Tomas Hertl RC #248

Part of the popular Young Guns subset, this rookie card may not have much flash but it is one of the most widely collected. As a result, prices are very solid considering its lack of flair. The Upper Deck name is enough to carry it.

2013-14 Upper Deck Black Diamond Tomas Hertl RC #227

Another Upper Deck staple, Black Diamond remains a collecting favorite with the familiar design and tiered base set. Included in the Quad Diamond Rookie Gems subset, this mid-level rookie maintains good value.

2013-14 Upper Deck Ice (SPx) Tomas Hertl RC #131 #/99

Although it carries the Upper Deck Ice name, these acetate cards are found in special bonus packs from SPx boxes. This rare Tomas Hertl Ice Premieres rookie is limited to only 99.

2013-14 Upper Deck MVP Update (UD S2) Tomas Hertl RC #81

While the first batch of MVP was found in Upper Deck Series 1, this Tomas Hertl rookie card came in the second batch in Series 2. The MVP brand is a low-end option which explains why this card normally carries a budget price tag despite Series 2 only averaging one MVP rookie per box.

2013-14 Upper Deck Trilogy Update (SPx) Tomas Hertl RC #207 Autograph

Upper Deck Trilogy was an early release this year, but Tomas Hertl was not included in the set. The Trilogy Update that features Hertl is found in SPx. Like the main version, there are three different cards with increased rarity. Each card features a specific image and design, in addition to various print runs. Rounding out the list, Level 1 is numbered to 149, Level 2 is numbered to 49, and Level 3 is numbered to 25.

Early Czech Tomas Hertl Cards

All of the early Tomas Hertl cards come from the Czech OFS brand and feature a relatively simple design. The available cards are mostly base offerings, but an autographed version was released in the 2011-12 product. There are also a few parallels offered for the 2012-13 cards.
