It wasn’t long ago that the Vancover Canucks were in rebuild mode. However, it didn’t take long for fans to see some hope on the horizon thanks to Brock Boeser and his scoring touch. Emerging as one of the top first-year talents in 2017-18, interest in any Brock Boeser Rookie Card has grown since the start of the season.

Because he made his debut late in the 2016-17 season, his first cards were held back until 2017-18 hockey products. That meant collectors could find Brock Boeser Rookie Cards in the earliest products that released before the NHL season kicked off.

If you’re curious about the Brock Boeser Rookie Cards that are out there, a detailed breakdown awaits.

Brock Boeser Rookie Card Guide

The following is a breakdown of Brock Boeser Rookie Cards that have the RC designation in the Beckett Hockey Card Database and Price Guide. It highlights base cards and does not include inserts, parallels or other cards and card-related items. A full Brock Boeser card checklist is available in the database.

2017-18 Artifacts Brock Boeser RC #171 /999

Usually much of the early rookie buzz in Artifacts surrounds the redemptions. But there’s no waiting on this one. Boeser is live in 2017-18 Artifacts packs thanks to his late debut in 2016-17. This is the first Brock Boeser Rookie Card on the market to come serial numbered. In today’s hobby, 999 copies isn’t exactly rare but it does add something. And, typically, over time, these can dry up significantly.

The card has several parallels, many of which come with autographs and/or memorabilia.

Parallels: Materials Silver (/499), Ruby (/399), Autograph Materials Silver (/99), Emerald (/99), Materials Emerald (/99), Orange (/55), Materials Purple (/49), Autograph Materials Emerald (/35), Purple (/20), Autograph Materials Purple (/15), Black Autograph (/5), Materials Black (/5), Autograph Materials Black (1/1)

2017-18 Black Diamond Brock Boeser RC #BDR-BB /99

The 2017-18 Black Diamond Brock Boeser Rookie Card doesn’t have a signature or some massive patch. But it does carry a hefty price tag. A trio of diamonds are embedded into the card. It’s also limited to just 99 copies, putting it up there with Boeser’s rarest RCs.

Parallels: Pure Black (1/1)

2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Brock Boeser RC #504

Nostalgia is a major theme with 2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Hockey. The design is modern but to hold it is a throwback to the days when cards were more like cardboard than slick surface technological marvels. There’s also the O-Pee-Chee name that became synonymous with generations of card collecting Canadians.

One of 50 Marquee Rookies in the main set, Boeser is a slight short print. But it’s still easy enough to find given the product’s wide distribution.

Parallels: Rainbow, Red, Retro, Retro Blank Back, Black (/100)

2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Platinum Brock Boeser RC #165

Layout wise, Brock Boeser’s RC in 2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Platinum is essentially a chromium version of his regular O-Pee-Chee card. The photo is different as well. Parallels add lots of colors. Upper Deck also did a lot with background patterns as well to help differentiate OPC Platinum a little more from other chrome releases found in other sports. Value-wise, this is one remains on the affordable side.

Parallels: Color Wheel, Rainbow, Platinum Violet Pixels, Red Prism (/199), Royal Blue Cubes (/99), Seismic Gold (/50), Orange Checkers (/25), Emerald Surge (/10), Golden Treasures (1/1), Printing Plates Black (1/1), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1)

2017-18 Parkhurst Brock Boeser RC #270

If you’re hunting for the 2017-18 Parkhurst Brock Boeser Rookie Card, at least inside of packs, you’re going to have to head to Walmart. Parkhurst is exclusive to the retail giant. Still widely available, this is one of the rare modern hockey sets where there are no short prints. All 300 base cards are included at equal numbers.

Parallels: Black, Red

2017-18 SP Authentic Brock Boeser RC Autograph #125 /999

SP Authentic is one of those perennial sets that is big with a wide spectrum of collectors. So even with 999 copies, this ranks among the more popular Brock Boeser Rookie Cards. A big part of the set’s popularity are the on-card autographs. It’s worth noting the while the card is numbered to 999, 50 of these come with inscriptions.

Parallels: Limited Patch Autographs (/100), Inscribed (50 copies — numbered in with the base versions), Printing Plates Black (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup)

2017-18 SP Game Used Brock Boeser RC #115 /6

2017-18 SP Game Used Hockey numbers its Rookie Cards according to the player’s jersey number. In Boeser’s card, that means just six copies. Needless to say, this is something comparable to a rare bird that birdwatchers may spend days, months or even years trying to spot. And when one does appear, you need to be ready. For most, the much more plentiful parallels may be the realistic (and only) option.

Parallels: Autographs Blue, Red Autograph Jersey, Gold Jersey (/399), Rainbow (/220), Orange Rainbow (/115), Gold Spectrum Patch (/49), Red Spectrum Autograph Patch (/15), Autographs (1/1), Green Storm (1/1), Printing Plates Black (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup)

2017-18 SPx Brock Boeser RC #45 /298

The 2017-18 SPx Brock Boeser Rookie Card has a distinct look to it compared to the winger’s other RCs. That’s because it’s part of the Shadow Box Rookies subset that uses layers and a few different printing technologies. It’s not the most expensive card, but it has a cool look for those looking for something more modern.

Parallels: Rookie Variations Autographs (/98), Gold Autographs (/8), Printing Plates Black (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1, found in 2017-18 The Cup)

2017-18 Synergy Brock Boeser RC #92 /8

Eight. That’s how many copies the base 2017-18 Synergy Brock Boeser Rookie Card has. Needless to say, it’s rare. Exceptionally rare. So rare, it’s bound to be a ‘forever hole’ on virtually every Boeser wantlist.

Parallels: Blue, Green, Purple, Red, Red Bounty, Printing Plates Black (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1, found in The Cup)

2017-18 The Cup Brock Boeser RC Auto Patch #175 /99

As far as value and prestige go, this is the top Brock Boeser Rookie Card. It’s typical for most modern RCs since the line was introduced. And for good reason. It’s from a luxury product that aims to be the best in practically every regard. An on-card signature and patch piece highlight the card, which has 99 copies.

Parallels: Gold Spectrum Autograph (/24), Green Button Autograph (/3), Black Autograph (1/1), Black Shield (1/1), Printing Plates Black Autograph (1/1), Printing Plates Cyan Autograph (1/1), Printing Plates Magenta Autograph (1/1), Printing Plates Yellow Autograph (1/1)

2017-18 Ultimate Collection Brock Boeser RC Autograph #93 /99

There’s a certain amount of modern elegance with this card. The signature and print run, which is on the small side, work to keep prices on the high side. That said, the Ultimate line doesn’t have quite the brand affinity as some other sets so getting one shouldn’t require extremes.

Parallels: Jersey (/299), Patches (/49), Printing Plates Black (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1, found in The Cup), Shield Patches (1/1)

2017-18 Upper Deck Brock Boeser RC #247

Young Guns — they’re a hallmark of the hobby when it comes to Rookie Cards. They’re not the rarest cards, although Boeser is a short print in 2017-18 Upper Deck Series 1 packs. Due to the popularity of flagship Upper Deck at several levels of collecting, the 2017-18 Upper Deck Brock Boeser Young Guns card fetches extremely strong prices given the fact that it’s a regular card without anything added and comes from a set where rarity isn’t a consideration.

Also popular are its numbered Exclusives and High Gloss parallels. The Clear Cut version is a hobby exclusive printed on acetate.

Parallels: Clear Cut, Oversized, Exclusives (/100), High Gloss (/10), Printing Plates Black (1/1), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1)

2017-18 Upper Deck Ice Brock Boeser RC #193 /99

The acetate stock and clear background leave an impression with the 2017-18 Upper Deck Ice Brock Boeser Rookie Card. It’s also one of his most distinct. Among the toughest RCs in the set, it shouldn’t be surprising that it’s also one of the most valuable. Ice has fairly broad appeal giving this card a bit of an additional premium when you compare it to other cards with similar print runs but with autographs.

Parallels: Black (1/1), Printing Plates Black (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1, found in The Cup)

2017-18 Upper Deck MVP Brock Boeser RC #241

Here’s the Brock Boeser Rookie Card that started it all. 2017-18 Upper Deck MVP kicked off the hockey card season. And with a low price tag at that. Similar to O-Pee-Chee and Parkhurst, this is a product that’s meant to be easily accessible. The value is more in the fun of ripping packs, sorting and building sets rather than the market value.

Parallels: Colors and Contours, Green Script, Silver Script, Gold Script (/100), Super Script (/25), Super Script Black (/5), Printing Plates Black (1/1), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1)

2017-18 Upper Deck Overtime Brock Boeser RC #60

You’re not likely to find packs of 2017-18 Upper Deck Overtime kicking around the card shop. That’s because the product was designed to be an added extra for those buying certain boxes. Boeser is in the first of three Overtime waves. Besides the regular version of the card that has the right winger wearing a blue Canucks jersey, there’s a short print variation where he’s in white.

Parallels: Blue, Red (/99)

2017-18 Upper Deck Premier Brock Boeser RC #91 /199

2017-18 UD Premier kept the fancy stuff for the inserts. Boeser has several hits in the product including one of the cornerstone acetate patch autographs, but his base RC takes a more traditional route, albeit on premium stock.

Parallels: Jerseys, Silver Spectrum Autograph, Jerseys Premium Materials (/36), Jerseys Neckline (/12), Platinum Blue Spectrum Autograph (/5), Jerseys Tag (/3), Printing Plates Black (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Cyan (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Magenta (1/1, found in The Cup), Printing Plates Yellow (1/1, found in The Cup)

2017-18 Upper Deck Splendor Brock Boeser RC Auto Patch #BDBB /36

2017-18 marked the first year for Splendor. It also brought with it one of the rarest and most elegant premium-level Brock Boeser Rookie Cards. The autograph and patch combination lead the way, but the print run of 36 and horizontal layout make it stand out just that much more.

2017-18 Upper Deck Trilogy Brock Boeser RC #78 /999

2017-18 Upper Deck Trilogy Hockey brings things in threes. For Boeser, that means three different cards in the main set. Level 1 is the most common and gets the RC tag. The others are nice, too, both bringing smaller print runs and autographs to the mix.

Parallels: Green Jersey (/399), Black (/99)
