If you've been following the hockey card market at all you've probably seen the high prices for Sidney Crosby's base Upper Deck card. Up here in Canada they've crossed the $150 threshold. He's sparked a whole lot of interest in hockey cards as a whole.
Today Upper Deck officially announced they'd signed Crosby to an exclusive deal (probably not too much of a surprise considering UD is the only company making NHL cards right now).
The impact? If $200 is the going rate for an unnumbered rookie in a base product, imagine what the likely autographed SP Authentic Future Watch card serial numbered /999 is likely to fetch.
