Top 25 Upper Deck The Cup Rookie Cards Of All-Time

STAMKOS THECUP Image In an odd way, we have King James to thank for the rise of Upper Deck's The Cup Hockey brand. If not for the success of 2003-04 Exquisite Collection Basketball, The Cup Hockey probably would have never come to be - especially when you factor in the impact of the 2004-05 NHL Strike. The NHL may have been coming off a strike, but in Sidney Crosby, they had hockey's equivalent to LeBron James. Suffice to say, things more than worked out.

  1. What do you think of the 09-10 the Cup Enshrinements auto’s numbered to /50? I recently bought a John Tavares and an Evander Kane auto, each was less than half of the most recent Beckett high price.

  2. Um………. the top two are correct ! But that’s about where this lists accuracy ends !!!! Like not even close lol

  3. mike ยป That’s a very old post. Here’s a more recent one, but even it could probably use some revisiting: http://www.cardboardconnection.com/10-best-upper-deck-the-cup-rookie-cards
