I'd have to say it's because Sidney Crosby has been way more impressive in his career so far. You don't hear about Ovechkin a whole lot any more cause he isn't doing anything spectacular. Crosby on the other hand, became the youngest captain to win the the Stanley Cup, he has won a gold medal with Team Canada in the Olympics, and when he stays healthy, Crosby puts up more points than Ovechkin.

What is considered to be Sidney Crosby's actual rookie card?

Really any card that is from a reputable sports card company that was released for his rookie season is legitimate. Some companies tend to be considered better than others for whatever reason and their cards will be more expensive or appreciate in value more quickly. Some companies may release a regular rookie card and an additional commemorative card of limited number etc. For instance the same company may have a regular Sidney Crosby rookie card going for around $200 and a special addition rookie card worth thousands. And these prices are constantly changing by the week or month. Their are several good magazines available in stores that can give you a better idea of current values for different companies.

What is the value of a 1988 Ken Griffy Jr rookie card?

Rookie Card - A players first year of cards, whether or not it is his rookie season. Players may have one or dozens of rookie cards, depending on how highly touted he was as a youngster and in which year his rookie card was issued. Minor League cards might be the players "First Cards" but are not considered true rookie cards because the player is not a Rookie until he plays for the Major Leagues. These cards are typically labeled as Rookie cards as a sales pitch to sell the card, and are not the "official rookie cards." An example would be the 1988 San Bernardino Spirit Ken Griffey Jr. minor league card number 34. The last year of statistics listed on the back of a baseball card is the year before the card was issued. A 1989 Ken Griffey Jr rookie card would reflect his 1988 stats. See Related Links below for a list of 1989 Ken Griffey Jr rookie cards. If none of these cards is the card you are inquiring about re-ask the question and include the name of the company that issued the card, and the number of the card. Ken Griffey Jr has many minor League cards issued in 1988 as well.

Which is the official Ken Griffy Jr rookie card?

Rookie Card - A players first year of cards, whether or not it is his rookie season. Players may have one or dozens of rookie cards, depending on how highly touted he was as a youngster and in which year his rookie card was issued.As defined above a player could have a number of rookie cards, and not just one "official rookie card" The amount of rookie cards could be multiplied by the number of companies that issue a card. Some players could have two Rookie cards from the same company such as a card issued in a Traded set (Topps) an update set (Fleer) or Rookie/Traded (Score), and then have a card issued in the regular set the following year. In most cases if not all the traded issue is recognized as the "official Rookie card"Minor League cards might be the players "First Cards" but are not considered true rookie cards because the player is not a Rookie until he plays for the Major Leagues. These cards are typically labeled as Rookie cards as a sales pitch to sell the card, and are not the "official rookie cards." An example would be the 1988 San Bernardino Spirit Ken Griffey Jr. minor league card number 34.The 1985 Topps card 401 is Mark McGwire's first card, and although he did not play in the Major Leagues at the time this card issued by a major company is considered to be McGwire's rookie card along with the 1987 Topps card 366. It could get confusing, but the card that is most desired by collectors could be considered as the "official rookie card" and this would be detected by the card with the highest price.The 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card #1 seems to be the collectors choice as the "official rookie card"with a book value of $40.00. Other rookie cards include 1989 Donruss Rookies card #3, 1989 Fleer card number 548, 1989 Topps traded card number 41T, 1989 Bowman card number 220, and 1989 Donruss card number 33.see Related question below for more information on these cards.


What information goes on a rookie card?

on a rookie card for baseball you will see the players minor league stats like their AAA team and AA team stats. I'm not sure about other sports but I collect baseball cards and if they have any stats from the major league it isn't a rookie card. A Rookie Card is a players first year of cards, whether or not it is his rookie season. Players may have one or dozens of rookie cards, depending on how highly touted he was as a youngster and in which year his rookie card was issued. A players rookie card could be issued after he has played in the majors, and will list his major league stats for any number of years he has played. Some rookie cards might have information on the players minor league career, or be noted as a rookie card, but not all. Otherwise the information listed is no different than any other card.
