Let’s take a look at the best Connor McDavid Rookie Cards money can buy!
2015-16 Connor McDavid Rookie Card Young Guns Upper Deck
This is an easy one and a must-have for investment purposes.
If you’re a collector of Hockey cards you know that the Young Guns are among the most popular rookie cards.
The Connor McDavid Young Guns Rookie Card is numbered 201 and reads “McDavid was named MVP of the 2015 OHL playoffs after recording 49 points (21-28-49) in 19 games. Five of those points came in a series-clinching 7-3 win over Sault Ste. Marie in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final, courtesy of a goal and four assists.”
2015 Connor McDavid Upper Deck Young Guns Canvas Rookie Card
Another Young Guns card but not as popular as the first (but we actually like this one more).
The Connor McDavid Young Guns Canvas card features Connor raising his gloves after a goal scored.
The card is numbered C211 and reads “McDavid was named MVP of the 2015 OHL playoffs after recording 49 points (21-28-49) in 19 games. Five of those points came in a series-clinching 7-3 win over Sault Ste. Marie in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final, courtesy of a goal and four assists.”
We like the photo better in this Young Guns version vs the 201 version… both are must-have McDavid rookie cards, however.
