Czech It! Tomas Hertl Rookie Card Guide
Tomas Hertl has 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. While he hasn't been able to keep up with the same torrid pace, he's still one of the standout players of a loaded rookie class. Not surprisingly, Tomas Hertl rookie cards are proving to be some of the most popular of the year.
Released prior to his first NHL rookie cards, Tomas Hertl has a handful of cards produced in the Czech Republic. In particular, his 2011-12 OFS Signatures autographs are doing very strong on the secondary market.
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.
Get specifics on Tomas Hertl rookie cards below. We'll continue to update the list throughout the year.
Tomas Hertl Rookie Cards
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. Some also have jersey swatches added.
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.
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 available for the 2012-13 cards.
