As far as accomplishments go, between the 2 players, there is no comparison, read below.. As only the 8th player ever..His record might stand forever.. The championship MVP completed his career.. As he also chases down one goal scoring legend. Despite playing in the toughest scoring era.. One of the most dominant forces of all time.. 3x MVP / 1x Playoff MVP. Only 3 others in history.. Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky & Mario Lemieux.. Only Gordie Howe & Bobby Hull with more.
Came up huge during their winning run.. With a playoff leading 15 goals.. Down 0-2 in Rd1, he scored 6 points over the next 4 games.. Set up game 6 OT winner against the Pens in Rd2...Scored game 7 winner in the ECF.. And registered a point in every Finals game.. Most decorated goal scorer ever. The only player in NHL history.. 11 seasons with 45+ goals.. 2 records unlikely to ever be broken..
Even denied of 12th "45+" by lockout 2012... Scoring 32 in half a season..
In a time when it was harder than ever to score.. Scorers he is compared to..
Played during the free flowing early days.. Been the only goal scoring machine..Breaking records set decades ago.. Doing it the most exciting way.. Skill, speed, size & strength.. They will go down in history side by side.. As their rivalry defined the NHL for over a decade..
With their collections of Hart & Conn Smythe trophies.. 3/1 Ovechkin & 2/2 Crosby.. Among the few to have won both..
They come in 4th & 5th greatest historically.. They have the same amount of career points.. Crosby has 4 NHL 1st team selections.. The 3rd most all time..As the greatest goal scorer. He's the best at what's most important in hockey.. He grew further in stature... 3rd all time in First Teams.. And especially, that record 9th "Rocket".. Over the last 25+ years in major sports.. Who also won a championship MVP.. Michael Jordan & Peyton Manning.. Lebron James & Tom Brady..
He has secured his place.. Among the pantheon names in hockey history..
And all of modern sports.. THIS CARD IS HAS GAME USED PATCH, NOT PHOTO SHOOT, LIKE EVERY OTHER YEAR OF THE CUP, INCLUDING THE CONNOR MCDAVID ROOKIE CARD. ONLY OVECHKIN, CROSBY, & KOIVU ARE GAME USED JERSEY'S, UNLIKE ALL 15 YEARS OF THE CUP'S OTHER PLAYERS.
The investment potential is huge here. Just imagine the value of Ovechkin's cards in 5 years, after he breaks Gretzky's all time goal record of 894. Ovechkin's Cup APR /99 has already gone up by 450% in the past 2 years alone.
And is really starting to take off. The true, four colour game used patches are extremely rare, as there are only about 8 of them in total. I don't mean the barely 4th colour in the corners, that you have to squint to see, like a couple of them out there. Invest now, before Ovechkin's prices skyrocket, just like Lebron James.There are still 25 days to go! Thanks for viewing, and best of luck to you..
