Overview

Pavel Bure hockey cards and autographed memorabilia have an international collecting base. Bure was part of the NHL's "Russian Invasion" of the early 1990s as the dismantling of the former Soviet Union started to take place. This resulted in several Russian players entering the NHL. Bure had been a star for the feared Central Red Army before being drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in 1989.

The Pavel Bure rookie card is in 1990-91 Upper Deck Hockey, which has both English and French versions.

His first autographed card was printed in 1992 by Classic. It features him with his brother, Valeri, who also played in the NHL. The known print run of the card is 6,000 copies. His first official NHL autograph card is from 1996-97 Be A Player.

Pavel Bure's first memorabilia card can be found in 1996-97 Upper Deck Hockey. It is a game-used jersey card.

Demand for Pavel Bure's autographed memorabilia spans the globe. His amazing speed and gifted scoring ability made him a fan favorite wherever he played. Signed sticks and pucks are some of the most desired pieces. Items related to the Vancouver Canucks Stanley Cup appearance in 1994 carry a slight premium.

The only distinction between the French and US versions are the language. This is visible on the front top-right corner where "Left Wing" has been translated to "Ailier Gauche." There was huge demand for 1990-91 Upper Deck French when it first came out, however any premium has significantly disappeared.
