Sidney Crosby rookie cards have been a staple of the hockey card market for nearly two decades now–not surprising when you remember that the Pittsburgh Penguins center was the first overall pick in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

And then, well, he pretty much lived up to the hype that comes along with such a lofty beginning to his professional career.

A two-time Hart Memorial Trophy winner as the league’s most valuable player, Crosby’s list of awards reads like an encyclopedia of NHL glory — 2 Ross Trophies, 3 Ted Lindsay Awards, 2 Maurice Richard Awards, eight All-Star selections, and on and on and on.

All of that bling was gathered on the back of a statistical profile that leaves Crosby among the greats of the game — with more than 500 goals and nearly 900 assists as of June 2022, Crosby’s 1400+ points have him positioned to make a run at the names top of the all-time board.

You know, guys like Wayne Gretzky (OK, maybe not), Jaromir Jagr, Mark Messier, Gordie Howe.

And all of that gaudy production has been proffered in the service of his team, as Crosby has led his Penguins to the playoffs 14 times in 17 season.

Three times, the result was a Stanley Cup championship.

So, yeah, Sidney Crosby rookie cards are plenty popular with collectors, as you can see from the list of his most watched RCs on eBay right now. Check back often, too, because this list is updated continually.
