Hockey cards are an awesome hobby if you have extra income to do with as you please. Nashville Predators cards have had a pretty good recent history and are a more affordable and have more value than the average team. Some of the notables have been Alexander Radulov, Shea Weber, and Patric Hornqvist. Recently an Alexander Radulov The Cup rookie card was sold on eBay for nearly $200.00 despite the fact that he plays in the Kontinental Hockey League. The price had to do with the fact that the card includes attributes such as a game used jersey patch, an autograph and is limited to only 99 in the world. One can find the Shea Weber variety for around $50-70 usually and is limited to 249. Other players with The Cup patch auto rookies who play for the Predators are Patric Hornqvist, Ryan Suter, Cody Franson, Cal O'Reilly, and Colin Wilson.
Another popular series is SPx in which some rookies are autographed and have game used jersey swatches. Those can be bought on eBay for around $7-20. You can find players such as Radulov, Weber, Suter, Wilson, Hornqvist and new to this years set Lindback. Blake Geoffrion and Jonathon Blum haven't and won't play enough games to grant them rookie cards. Shea Weber played enough in 05-06 to get a late issued rookie card but they instead waited until the 06-07 season to release them. As a fan I like to try to get all our players rookie cards and the more there are of one player the more fun and challenging. And these players (Blum and Geoffrion) are marquee players for a rookie set. Both are 1st rounders and very high prospects for our team. I would like these two to get their own hockey cards as soon as possible but it looks like we will have to wait until next season for that.
The future looks bright for Nashville Predators card collectors!
