I like to use hockey cards to visualize players here at Greatest Hockey Legends.com. After all, people come to my website to remember their hockey heroes of yesterday, and what a great way to relive memories than with that special hockey card from your past.
Speaking of hockey cards, Eric Bonnici introduce himself and his website to me this weekend. He runs Hockey Headquarters.com, a fancy site about hockey cards and other memorabilia. But, much like my own websites, I really appreciate the content Eric dedicates to his site.
Here's some fascinating news from his site: a 1910-11 Newsy Lalonde rookie card and a 1911-12 Georges Vezina rookie card sold for $100,000 each! As you might expect, both cards now hold the record for the highest valued hockey card.
Bonnici describes both cards in detail if you click on the links. Interestingly, while the Vezina card is in mint condition, the Lalonde card is only graded 3 out of 10. Apparently it is so rare that only 2 cards are publicly known.
Fear not, if you don't have that lucrative Vezina or Lalonde card in a Sprinters shoe box in your attic, perhaps you have a Wayne Gretzky rookie card. Apparently The Great One's card sold in 2006 for $80,000.
