Rookie Card Year: 2007-08
Investment Rating: 7.0
As one of the best American-born players in the NHL, Patrick Kane cards have a strong fanbase. A gifted skater and scorer, Patrick Kane was another key piece in the rebuilding process for the Chicago Blackhawks. Taken first overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Kane made his presence known early and often, racking up 72 points on 21 goals and 51 assists during his rookie campaign. This made him an easy choice for the Calder Memorial Trophy for rookie of the year.
A brash, and cocky American from Buffalo, Kane's off-ice antics have been a mild distraction at times and can be chalked up to youthful indiscretion. His speed, stick handling and ice awareness make him an explosive winger. Small in stature at just 5'10", many outside observers might think Kane to be an injury-prone winger against the league's growing emphasis on size. However, Kane's ability to avoid contact has made him elusive to defenders.
With a pair of Stanley Cup victories, including the 2013 Conn Smythe Trophy, and a knack for putting the puck in the back of the net, Kane has all the components collectors and fans look for in an offensive player. As a result, Patrick Kane cards, memorabilia and autographs look to have strong long-term value.
Patrick Kane rookie cards come from 2007-08 products, including several with autographs and memorabilia swatches. Kane has 20 total rookie cards, all in various price ranges. His autographed memorabilia has strong demand and game-used sticks do occasionally come up for sale in the market as a result of his ritual of tossing it into the stands after a game. His official NHL jersey is consistently in the top ten of most sold jerseys every year.
