Default Why is Nikita Kucherov so cheap?

He is leading the NHL in scoring and points this year and you can pick one of his autos up for like $15 on the bay? What's the deal with that? Am I missing something?

Hockey autos usually aren’t that expensive.

+ He's cooled down considerably. 13 goals in October, 14 goals in the last three months.

Because its not his rookie auto.
If he had a Sp Authentic future Watch it be $200-$300.

You can buy 99% of players autos for $20 or less...just another auto.

You can get a Sidney Crosby auto for like $60 and hard signed one for $80.

John Tavares is $20 and a sticker $10.

Think about it.

Look at Voracek this guy is in the hunt for the Art Ross, plays for a team that has a strong hobby following and his YG's are $6.00-10.00.

Voracek might not get the YG sales because it's in a Columbus uniform but still a quality player that is just another example of how fickle it is with NHL Rookie cards (YG) compared to other pro sports.

Kucherov and Voracek are just further proof that players from overseas are never going to get the same interest as North American players, never!!

Kucherov YG sells higher than 99% of NA players...
Sold higher than Stamkos/Tavares/Eichel/Benn/etc.

So really not sure what you are talking about?

If Voracek was 19 and rookie he'd be $100+ YG

You forget that Crosby YG sold for $200 for over 10 years.

Anders Lee could win Richard with 50 goals and no one will give a crap. It don't matter where's he from or what team he plays for.

In 6-7 years your mitch marner YGS will be $10 too

MN will always love Anders.


Well, if he scored 50, we’d love him.

I think kucherov is appropriately priced to expensive. I think tarasenko is a good bargain.

Kucherov YG was $5 then peaked at $100.... That's 2000% gain
Voracek fwa was $5 last year now hitting $25....That's 500% gain


Let me know when your McDavid/Matthews Yg/fwa cards go up that much.

Carey Price YG is almost the same price and he plays for Montreal and he's Canadian.

So how much do you want Kucherov to be worth?

David Pastrnak sells higher than Patrice Bergeron who's won a cup and a bunch of individual awards and is Canadian

Erik Karlsson sells higher than Drew Doughty

Why is Blake Wheeler YG $10?
Plays for a Canadian team and is not "foreign".

Because he's the equivalent of Jakub Voracek

I love the sound of bursting bubbles and the feeling that washes over me when I learn my collection is basically worthless.

Some Kucherov cards are still cheap because heís still in the Ďprove ití phase. Despite a great second half last year, and leading the scoring race this year, the hobby still wants to know if this is going to be a sustained level of play. There may also be some discounting based on the fact heís playing with Stamkos this year, and on a great Tampa team.

These Ďprove ití phases can be a great opportunity to buy. Back in the early 90ís, I think Greg Maddox was working on his fourth Cy Young before his cards really began to move.
