It was inevitable. John Tavares has started ripping it up! He's showing the skill which made him the most talked about prospect since Sidney Crosby. If you don't remember his skill level, watch this goal:
With 4 goals and 8 points in his last 5 games, Tavares has captured the rookie goal and point scoring lead.
Not only has his scoring been on the rise, so have his card values. A recent eBay transaction netted one seller $340 for a 2009-10 Upper Deck Black RC Auto/Letter/Patch Redemption. Even his recently released Upper Deck Series One Young Guns are selling for anywhere from $80 to $120. This should be a great season for those lucky enough to pull a few Tavares cards from their hockey card packs.
2009-10 Upper Deck Series One and many other brands are available from Canada Card World.
