Brian Leetch

Date of Birth: 3/3/1968
Rookie Card Year: 1989-90
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

As one of the best NHL defensemen of all-time, Brian Leetch cards and autographed memorabilia hold a special place in the hearts of collectors. His career spanned 18-years, most of which were spent with the New York Rangers. He helped guide the team to their 1994 Stanley Cup Championship, winning the Conn Smythe Trophy as the postseason MVP.

Leetch has two rookie cards: 1989-90 O-Pee-Chee and 1989-90 Topps Hockey. Both are readily available and shouldn't cost more than a few dollars ungraded.

While it's not a traditional rookie card, the 1988-89 Panini Hockey Stickers set has Leetch a full year before his first NHL card. This sticker is tough to find as a single and does often sell for a little more than either the Topps or O-Pee-Chee rookies.

Brian Leetch's first certified autograph card was produced by Be A Player in 1994-95. It has a print run of 600 copies. Issued the year after the New York Rangers Stanley Cup victory, it is highly desired by collectors.

1997-98 Upper Deck Hockey has his first game-used memorabilia card. It is part of the Game Jerseys insert set.

As one of the greatest New York Rangers of all-time, demand for Leetch's autographed memorabilia is always strong. Leetch had an exclusive autograph deal with Steiner Sports for several years. As a result, many of his signed items come with a Steiner certificate of authenticity.

As was custom for the time period, the only noticeable differences between this card and the Topps version below are the logo and bilingual back. It is written in English and French.

While the O-Pee-Chee card typically sells for more money, some collectors actually prefer the Topps version. This is because the Topps set, for once, a little tougher to find than its Canadian cousin. That said, both are extremely reasonably priced, even top-end professionally graded versions.
