Pekka Rinne Rookie Cards Guide

Pekka Rinne

Date of Birth: 11/3/1982
Rookie Card Year: 2005-06
Investment Rating: 7.5


Although he's emerged as one of the top goalies in the NHL, Pekka Rinne rookie cards have remained relatively quiet in the hobby. While they've picked up some steam, he's not in a high-profile market and the Predators have yet to go deep into the playoffs.

Pekka Rinne rookie cards are found in the already loaded 2005-06 products -- you know the year with a seemingly endless supply of All-Stars and greats like Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin and Corey Perry. However, unlike a lot of his pricey peers, Rinne doesn't have and autographed rookie cards in The Cup or SP Authentic.

Of Rinne's ten rookie cards, nine are serial numbered. With the rarest of the bunch, 2005-06 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection, coming in at 599 copies, they're not particularly scarce. This also contributes to their more reasonable prices. All of his rookies are produced by Upper Deck, who uses tiers in a lot of their sets that make the top prospects tougher to pull. Rinne was something of a dark horse pick as he's among the more common rookies from the sets that he was included in.

While In the Game had a few Pekka Rinne autograph cards dating back to 2005-06, his first NHL autograph cards weren't released until 2009-10.

At this point, it's safe to say that Pekka Rinne cards are, for the most part, overlooked. Already a two-time Vezina nominee as the NHL's top goalie, he's showing signs that he'll be a perennial contender. Should Rinne get the Predators in front of a national audience via a Stanley Cup run, his prospects in the hobby could change in a hurry rather than the slow and steady approach they've followed thus far.
