Blue-Chip Modern Rookie Card - Must See

Spectacular offering! Presented here is the crown jewel of the '05-06 Upper Deck The Cup Hockey set and one of the most important modern rookie cards in existence. The offered Sidney Crosby Beckett 9 rookie patch auto represents one of the finest copies we've had the pleasure of brokering in our long tenure and lives up to the hype in every way possible. The card boasts virtually uncirculated qualities throughout with only the faintest of corner touches accounting for the harsh assessment. Other than this "flaw" the card is virtually GEM MINT with perfect centering, crisp edges and exceptional surfaces which are void of any typical wear. The card possesses a stunning pristine on card autograph which has been beautifully struck in blue ink. On top of all of these aforementioned qualities, the card boasts a highly desired two color Penguins jersey patch. Much like the '03 Exquisite Collection Basketball set, the '05 Cup Hockey set pushed the limits of what premium modern cards can be today. Crosby has three Stanley Cup wins already in his career and statistics which place him among the greatest Hockey players of all-time. What will become of an investment piece like this when the trading card market elevates to awareness among traditional markets? With the high likelihood that Crosby and the Penguins continue their success, this card is sure to have a healthy return on investment. It's safe to assume the population will not increase meaningfully over the coming years, and as such, this offering presents perhaps a one-time chance to acquire a world class asset, ahead of the investment wave.
