13-14 Panini Playbook AUTObiography Tyler Seguin Auto /99

Given the choice between Sidney Crosby and Tyler Seguin...who would you choose? Pretty easy choice this season, though Sidney has come on of late with 12 points in his last 7 games but Tyler's currently sitting in third in NHL scoring and is on pace for 45 goals and 95 points. Over the past two and a half seasons Tyler has outscored Sidney 98 to 76 in the goals department but Sidney has the edge in the points department over the same time period with 229 to 212. With that being said each has other intangibles they bring to their respective and a case can be made for each guy. But what shocks me is how little demand there is for Seguin's cards in comparison to Crosby's and as a result Tyler's cards can book for less than half the value of Crosby.

13-14 Panini Playbook AUTObiography Tyler Seguin Auto /99
This card was picked up in a trade last year. It features a nice on card auto which isn't my first but I am a pretty big fan of Tyler and what he does on the ice so it was a pleasure to add. The card is also numbered to /99 which is always nice to know there aren't a few thousand of them kicking around. If you are interested in adding this to your collection, one of the /99 from this release are available on eBay for under 30 dollars I believe plus many of his other autographs.


  1. Wow, I never realized his autos were so cheap. Very nice on-card auto there Dave!

    Maybe in the long run I'll be proven wrong, and maybe it's just a bad taste in my mouth from Seguin's brief time in Boston, but give me Crosby any day, slump or not. I need to see Seguin have some success in gritty, post-season play before I'll elevate him to Sidney's level. If Tyler ever hoists a Cup, or even leads and inspires the Stars to a deep post-season run I'll eat my words ;-)

    1. Thanks!

      How bad was his time there? I got a sense that management was very impatient with him but I didn't think he was Carter or Richards bad in terms of partying.

      I can't fault you for that choice that's for sure, time will certainly tell!
