The only negative (and it’s a big one) is Jagr started his career when cards were printed in mass amounts. However, we still think Jagr rookie cards are a SOLID buy at these levels and would recommend buying while they are on the cheap. If possible, try to buy one that will set it apart from the others (i.e., 1990-91 Upper Deck Hologram Jaromir Jagr card).

  1. Hi, I saw a 90 opee chee premiier Jagr rookie card for sale on E-Bay and seller claims it’s a rare pink box edition.What is a pink box edition?
    Thank you

    • Joe, There’s no such thing. He’s probably trying to make it seem like it’s more rare… 99.99% of the card advice is just people who know very little just being “a copy of a copy”. Bad advice that’s often repeated, so then it becomes “true”. Here’s the real advice. Hands down the best investment is the 1990 Jagr Foodland… POP of about 15 in PSA 10. And unlikely to explode in population (like OPC premiers are doing right now) since they were literally carried by local Police in their pockets and given out to kids…. (causing the already low regional print run to get damaged) And /or any autographed rookie card that is a PSA 10 with Auto PSA 10 as well. (dual 10’s) Beyond that upper Deck French only and Pro Set stats lined up only. The rest are too high in pop for a good investment. But, that does not mean you cannot just own whatever you like as a collector. Always ask yourself when you’re buying… am I a collector (fan) or an investor? If you’re just a fan, there is no wrong answer because you like it and it’s fun to own cards & players that you like! If you’re an investor– you have to speculate that you know something that somebody else does not know right now… and that someone in the future would be willing to pay more for the card once their knowledge or the market catches up.

      Cheers amigo, Jagr Card Expert.
