Hockey Card of the Day – Stanley Cup Playoffs Edition – Day 9

With just over five minutes remaining in Thursday night’s game, the Detroit Red Wings were winning 2-0 and about to take a commanding 3-1 series lead.  Tyler Johnson had other plans.  He scored a goal at 14:34 in the third period and then scored the game winner less than three minutes into overtime.

I would have picked Johnson’s Young Guns rookie, but I decided to go with a card you couldn’t physically get in a pack.  His Upper Deck Artifacts card was a redemption, so all 899 cards are not live and likely never will be.  It currently has a Beckett book value at $12.

As of this writing, there is one unredeemed redemption available on eBay and five live cards.  The last seven in “sold” items on eBay have all sold as low as $.99 and only as high as $7.50.

It’s no Young Guns card, but who knows, could it be more scarce?  Sometimes perception of value in the hobby outweighs actual truth.  You make the call.
