Grant Fuhr Cards, Rookie Card and Autographed Memorabilia Guide

Grant Fuhr

Date of Birth: 9/28/1962
Rookie Card Year: 1982-83
Investment Rating: 7.0


Overview

During the 1980s, Grant Fuhr enjoyed one of the most dominant decades by a goaltender in NHL history. He was an anchor for the Edmonton Oilers team that five Stanley Cup Championships in seven years. The perennial All-Star won the Vezina Trophy as the league's top net-minder in 1988. Even still, Grant Fuhr cards are very affordable, although high-end professionally graded examples can carry premiums.

Fuhr's rookie card is in the 1982-83 O-Pee-Chee Hockey set. He also has one card issued prior to his rookie card. It was distributed by the Red Robin restaurant chain. Fuhr also has three other 1982-83 card. One was issued by Post Cereal, another from the Victoria Cougars minor league team-issued set, and the last is another Red Robin card. However, none of these are considered to be rookie cards because they were not distributed as part of a mainstream NHL set. While they may fall into that oddball category of cards, they are still quite collectible.

Completists will appreciate knowing that in addition to his cards, Fuhr also had four stickers and a 5 x 7 inch black and white photograph issued during his early years. Both Topps and O-Pee-Chee included Fuhr in their sticker collections in 1982-83. West Edmonton Mall issued a Fuhr photo in 1981-82.

Fuhr's first certified autograph was produced towards the end of his playing career. It is part of the 1995-96 Be a Player set. In addition to the regular version, the card has a die-cut parallel.

His first memorabilia cards were issued by Upper Deck and Be A Player during the 1999-00 season. His Be A Player Millennium card is quite rare with a known print run of just 30 copies. The card is not serial numbered. His McDonald's Upper Deck Game Jersey card is far more plentiful with 300 serial numbered copies produced. However, because of its distribution as a prize through the fast food chain, it's tougher to find than the print run suggests.

Grant Fuhr's autographed memorabilia has a loyal following. As the goaltender for one of the NHL's last true dynasties, his signed items continue to see solid demand long after his retirement.
